Deliver These Simple Solutions to Solve Senior Living Workforce Management Challenges 

New Partnership to Bring Actionable Data to Help Communities Staff Consistently and Efficiently

By Medline Newsroom Staff | October 3, 2018

While the demands on post-acute care and senior living providers continue to increase, one factor remains the same – the need for qualified candidates. In fact, a recent survey of more than 2,700 Leading Age members identified it as their top workforce challenge.  Increased voluntary overtime ranked as a top consequence from worker shortage.

A new exclusive partnership between Medline and OnShift, a leading provider of human capital management software for post-acute care and senior living, is offering senior care providers mobile and cloud-based solutions to bring simplicity to critical workforce management challenges, such as recruiting employees, controlling labor costs and increasing retention.

Through the partnership, customers will have access to OnShift’s suite of easy-to-use workforce software for hiring, scheduling and employee engagement, including:

  • Proactive tools to schedule employees, predict overtime to lower costs and fill openings to staff properly each and every shift;
  • Employee pulse surveys to capture feedback in real-time to monitor and improve staff satisfaction;
  • Automated points-based rewards and recognition system to improve staff engagement;
  • Employee access to earned income, between paychecks, to better manage personal expenses for financial peace of mind;
  • Automated, artificial intellignece powered text-based recruiting to engage and communicate with job candidates to increase number of new hires.

Many post-acute care and senior living providers leveraging OnShift are able to reduce time-to-hire by 50 percent, improve scheduling efficiencies by 70 percent and reduce overtime by up to 70 percent.

Steve Haynes, EVP of Corporate Development at OnShift commented, “We have been impressed with Medline’s industry leadership, world-class solutions and deep understanding of their customers’ needs. Together, Medline and OnShift offer an unparalleled solution to improve clinical, financial and operational outcomes. We look forward to working together to help senior care providers address their most significant workforce challenges.”

Medline and OnShift will both highlight their solutions for driving workforce retention at the AHCA/NCAL Annual Meeting in San Diego, October 8 and 9, booth 1313 (Medline) and booth 1320 (OnShift).

Use of technology like OnShift is expected to increase as senior care providers look at new ways to improve clinical and operational outcomes.
