How MedStar scaled a unified solution for on-call scheduling

Wednesday, March 6th, 2024 | 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM CT 

Effectively managing on-call schedules for providers is rife with challenges. Logistics issues, concerns about fairness and burnout, fluctuating patient demand, and more make on-call scheduling an arduous task that's prone to errors — especially for a health system with more than 5,000 providers. 

Columbia, Md.-based MedStar Health previously used multiple disparate on-call scheduling methods that created obstacles to a smooth and effective process. In this live webinar, Brendan Furlong, MD, chief medical information officer of MedStar Medical Group, will discuss how the 10-hospital system set out to establish a centralized, accurate and up-to-date scheduling source of truth.

You'll learn:
  • How to find and implement a solution that streamlines operations, prevents missed care opportunities and improves the provider experience
  • How to achieve operational efficiency and scalability in scheduling
  • Key components in finding the right scheduling partner
