Emergency Medicine Scheduling

Emergency departments require proper staffing around the clock, and they need a workforce management solution capable of providing updates in real-time.

OpenTempo allows emergency departments to build schedules for an unlimited number of providers and sub-specialties. Using a rules-based system, OpenTempo makes sure every clinical rule, human resources protocol, or union policy is enforced automatically.

Fast Request Processing

With so many providers on the schedule, it is no surprise that emergency department schedules must accommodate a large number of requests. OpenTempo lets you process requests for vacation days, shift swaps, CMEs, and more – automatically. You can even specify which types of requests you wish to approve automatically and which you wish to review manually. OpenTempo screens every request according to your rules and policies, and blocks requests that violate your requirements.

Track Time

OpenTempo provides fully integrated time and attendance tracking, with the ability to export your data into any payroll system. You will be able to calculate shift differentials and can choose to clock in via touch-screen kiosks or through your smartphone. Also, by integrating scheduling with time tracking, you will be able to dramatically improve your variance between overtime and under time.

Emergency Medicine Residents and Attendings

For emergency departments in academic medical centers, OpenTempo lets you incorporate your resident schedules directly into your shift and call schedules. You will be able to track your residents by rotation, prerequisite, or certification. Attending schedules can also be balanced to account for academic and clinical work ratios.

Mobile App

The OpenTempo mobile scheduling app lets you view and update your schedules from your smartphone or tablet. You will be able to make requests, contact your colleagues, and receive schedule change notifications – all from the palm of your hand.
