How Ascension St. Vincent is combatting nurse understaffing

Tuesday, April 25th, 2023 | 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM CT

When a health system faces extreme staffing shortages, fully utilizing staff across all facilities is only one part of maximizing capacity. By providing automation tools for nurse leaders to dynamically manage capacity and throughput, health systems can offset the capacity lost due to understaffing.

During this webinar, a nurse leader with St. Louis-based Ascension will share how the system is breaking down silos and streamlining staffing to better support nurses.

Webinar attendees will learn:
  • How siloed staffing affects patient care
  • How centralized staffing policies optimize resource allocation
  • How communication tools can improve collaboration for staffing offices and empower nursing managers
  • The benefits of intelligent workflow automation for equitable staffing and improved patient care
