Leveraging Scheduling Technologies to Meet the Demands of COVID-19

COVID-19 has greatly impacted healthcare staffing. Learn how UKG for Healthcare Solutions align staffing with census, workload, and employee skills.

The pandemic has altered healthcare staffing, placing extreme pressure on emergency department and ICU employees while OR, outpatient clinic, and physician office staff members have been idled and, in some cases, furloughed. Some healthcare organizations have moved to a tiered staffing model for their care teams, reassigning non-ICU nurses and staff to work with experienced ICU clinicians.
