Innovative leaders in industries outside healthcare have been reaping the rewards of revolutionary new approaches to staffing and scheduling—and it’s past time for healthcare organizations to follow suit. Healthcare reform has forced this industry to reinvent in myriad ways, and now it’s more important than ever to apply new approaches to staff scheduling for bigger returns on patient satisfaction, staff engagement, and the bottom line.

Fortunately, there is a way for healthcare to leverage modern innovations to improve the efficacy, productivity, and cost-effectiveness of staff management: a model we call Collaborative Staffing. Sage Growth Partners will share findings from their recent analysis, which details the power of this new staffing paradigm and how it benefits hospitals, healthcare staff, and, ultimately, patients.
