News Facts

  • Productive Scheduling Solutions was founded in 2005 by physicians – bringing together the vision of two seasoned anesthesiologists with technology to automate physician scheduling.
  • Productive Scheduling Solutions is widely recognized for its EZCall® software-as-a-service (SaaS) employee scheduling solution designed to automate the process of scheduling for physicians, hospitalists, academic practices, advanced practice nurses, and physician assistants.
  • EZCall is highly differentiated by its next-generation platform that combines an easy-to-use, intuitive interface with flexible rules-based configurable scheduling capabilities.
  • Available through iOS and Android mobile applications, the solution makes it easy for clinicians and administrators to manage their schedules from any location at any time.
  • EZCall is widely used by various specialties, including anesthesiology, cardiology, radiology, pain management, critical care intensivists, orthopedics, and hospitalist groups.

  • Market trends demonstrate growth in this segment of the market, with an increasing percentage of physicians moving from being independent practitioners to more closely affiliated or employed relationships with healthcare organizations or systems – which will increase the number of physicians needing to be scheduled through automated solutions.
  • EZCall aligns with Kronos’ vision of ease of use, employee engagement, and collaboration in support of developing the workforce into a competitive advantage.
