To deliver the best possible patient care, Mission Health knew it needed to empower staff while optimizing labor costs. Lack of visibility and awareness into labor costs, coupled with inconsistent time and scheduling policies hindered their progress. By leveraging its workforce management solution and the visibility it provided on labor data, Mission Health was able to better evaluate its time tracking and scheduling processes. Following thru with more effective policies, ongoing education and change management, the hospital was able to save $500K in labor costs while empowering its staff.
