Family Medicine Scheduling

Family medicine is predicated on the belief that caring for patients without a comprehensive view of their community is ineffective. OpenTempo takes a similar approach to workforce management – that a fully integrated system will always offer more benefit than a disjointed method.

That’s why OpenTempo incorporates scheduling, time and attendance, payroll export, business intelligence, and provider communication into a complete workforce management solution.

Automated Family Medicine Scheduling

OpenTempo uses a rules-based “engine” that lets you build your daily and call schedules with complete confidence. You will be able to specify every clinical rule and policy of your facility so that inappropriate assignments are blocked automatically, and you can build schedules for any number of providers and locations.

Scheduling by Hour or Day

Most importantly for family medicine practices, OpenTempo lets you set up your schedule by time, as well as by day. This gives you extraordinary flexibility in creating your schedule, as you can specify your needs down to the exact start and end time.

Multi-clinic practices can also decide how much control the central administration retains over scheduling, and how much autonomy is given directly to the clinics.

Rapid Request Processing

Family medicine practices invariably have to juggle numerous requests for shift swaps or days off. With OpenTempo, you can choose under which circumstances you wish to approve requests automatically, and when you prefer to review them manually.

Time Tracking

OpenTempo lets you track time and attendance, with the option to use touch-screen kiosks or your smartphone to clock in and out. You will be able to calculate shift differentials and export your data into any payroll system. And, with 65 built-in business intelligence reports, you will be able to retrieve and analyze your data however you need.

Full Mobile Access

OpenTempo’s mobile scheduling app gives you the ability to view and update schedules from your smartphone or tablet. You will be able to make requests, see your personal and team schedules, receive updates, and contact your colleagues directly from your mobile device.
