ORLANDO, Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference & Exhibition,

At a time when regulations are becoming increasingly complex and value-based care is the norm, a successful transition into the new era of healthcare begins with automation that ensures employee scheduling accuracy, mitigates compliance risk, and keeps staff engaged. Recognizing that this mix is needed to deliver high-quality, cost-effective care, healthcare organizations are turning to Kronos Incorporated to boost their human capital and workforce management strategies to increase employee engagement and operational efficiency.

News Facts

  • A long-standing Kronos customer, Northwell Health’s Cohen Children’s Medical Center, a nationally top-ranked pediatric care provider, has effectively measured employee engagement and the contributing factors that influence this engagement with Kronos. The Kronos employee scheduling solution with self-service functionality has helped build employee engagement for the organization by giving employees insight into decision making.
  • After implementing a full suite of workforce management solutions from Kronos including workforce analytics, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH), flagship hospital of Robert Wood Johnson Health System, saved more than $10 million in operational costs by addressing staffing issues and increasing employee engagement. The improvements were accomplished by using the analytics solution to accurately staff each department. RWJUH also mandated that the “buy in” for the solution came from all employees and not just management, ensuring employee engagement at all levels.
  • Leading brands in healthcare continue to invest in Kronos. For example, recently Southcoast Health selected Kronos to optimize how it manages its biggest asset – the workforce. Among its many recognitions and accolades, Southcoast Health is the recipient of the Healthgrades 2017 Distinguished Hospital Award, and has also been named among the top five percent in the nation for patient safety for three years in a row. This success is achieved by making strategic investments, improving clinical processes, and implementing new technologies.
