Kronos Limited has announced Australia’s largest provider of integrated health care – Healthscope, is implementing a suite of Kronos workforce management tools to operate at optimal efficiency and focus more on delivering excellent patient care.
Healthscope plans to implement Kronos® for Healthcare across 2 pilot sites with the potential of a full roll out to all 41 of its Australian hospital sites.
As industry leaders in driving innovation, Healthscope has an uncompromising focus on delivering high quality clinical outcomes, systems, processes, staff, equipment and facilities. The Kronos automated time and attendance solution will see Healthscope cut out its 15,000 labour-intensive timesheets so that data entry and approval processing are stream-lined, reducing administration time associated with attendance monitoring and employee inquiries.
Talking about the key reasons the company selected the Kronos workforce management solution, Robert Cooke, Executive Chairman, said "Kronos will give us a holistic view of our workforce across all of our hospital sites in Australia in real-time. Our management team will have visibility of our entire workforce so that we can eliminate the guesswork and make smarter and more intuitive staff rosters. This a fantastic leap forward in productivity for us."
Healthscope also wanted to leverage Kronos’ technologies to realise its vision of bringing more automation and self-service capabilities to its staff.
“Our employees will have the autonomy to enter their availability and submit leave. For management, this means we also have on-the-go workforce insights to help us accurately align labour with anticipated patient demand, whilst allowing our staff to take control of their own work life balance.
“The success we have seen so far with choosing Kronos is the collaborative approach. The Kronos team has worked with us very closely to ensure the project establishes a foothold within the business and can start delivering value immediately,” said Mr Cooke.
“Healthcare demand in Australia is strong and it is important that we can build a platform to allow us to grow. We’re confident that we have made the right decision with Kronos and we will be able to integrate newly developed and planned sites onto the workforce system in the future, with ease.”
