Optimising workforce management
in healthcare with rostering systems
"The Premier IT Job Planning system is an online,
calendar-based system developed specifically to manage job planning activities for all staff groups from consultants and SAS doctors to AHPs and clinical nurse specialists."
Will Richards, Deployment and Training Manager
Job Planning is placed at the heart of the 2003 consultant contract. Eliminating the inaccuracies of a paper-based/excel system and automating calculations becomes more important than ever in managing medical resources effectively. A cost-effective IT solution, the Job Planning system is easy to use and accessible anytime, anywhere. Functionality and feature-rich, it is available as a standalone tool or a module within the appraisal and revalidation for doctors management system.
e-Job Planning System
Our Job Planning system was designed against increasing pressures and demands on the NHS. The need to deliver quality and timely patient care is at the forefront of its design, prioritising the efficiency in Job Planning for the services of highly skilled medics such as AHPs. Eliminating the inaccuracies of a paper-based/excel system is more important than ever in effectively managing medical resources. An approach to this is a move to electronic Job Planning as a critical step in digitising the work of AHPs for the future.

Many other features such as reminders, reporting and multiple sign-off rules are all configurable giving organisations a solution specific to their needs.
Service Led Team Job Planning
Our system also provides a unique demand-based, service-led team Job Planning module. This allows Service Leads to build accurate service delivery plans for their teams based on Business Intelligence as part of the Job Planning process. The required activity can then be allocated to user job plans or listed as an objective, giving the lead users unrivalled control and visibility of the activity in the job plans in their department, and contributing to quality data outputs as part of a comprehensive business planning process.
