RICHMOND, Va., July 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Workpath, a healthcare technology company, announced today the expansion of its HIPAA-compliant platform designed to improve the way organizations perform and coordinate care. New features on the Workpath dashboard now allow users to order, publish, and assign shifts with a click. Health systems, phlebotomy labor providers, home health agencies, nursing organizations, and other healthcare leaders can now use Workpath to seamlessly schedule daily shifts or on-call shifts at facilities or patient homes, staff events, and fill open shifts. A second release, set for mid-summer, will add the ability to schedule recurring shifts to the platform as Workpath continues to expand its features to serve healthcare organizations of all sizes.
"As healthcare technologists, it's our job to continuously apply new technologies to an industry that deserves the best tools possible to impact care delivery," said Eddie Peloke, CEO of Workpath. "The expansion of the Workpath platform will allow healthcare organizations to spend less time worrying about scheduling their labor and filling shifts, and more time improving their care and patient outcomes."
Leveraging this new feature is easy. Healthcare organizations simply select a start and end date and time. Then, the user adds the contact person's name and info. To complete the process in seconds, the user is prompted to enter the address where the shift will happen, such as a patient's home, a doctor's office, a hospital, or anywhere else. They can also enter a payment amount, if necessary. The next update to the platform will also include the ability to choose whether the shift is recurring (daily, weekly, monthly or by selecting custom dates).
"Those responsible for keeping healthcare on track know far too well the challenges of scheduling labor to perform critical services," said Peloke. "Scheduling can be extremely stressful – and calling, texting, and emailing individuals can be time-consuming. Not to mention, the impact scheduling mishaps can have on team morale, patient satisfaction, and the bottom line."
In addition to new features designed to improve the everyday workflow of healthcare organizations, Workpath will soon add features designed to improve quality, safety, and compliance. This summer, Workpath will launch a feature within the platform that allows healthcare organizations to quickly and easily perform background checks for their entire network of employees and vendors. The new feature will make it easy and cost effective to perform a National Criminal Search, Sex Offender Registry, Social Security Number Trace, and Global Watchlist.
Prior to the creation of Workpath, seamlessly dispatching and managing healthcare services on-demand was not possible. The recent expansion of the platform marks a busy year for Workpath, which is now being used by health systems, laboratories, home health agencies, and other healthcare organizations around the country. As a fully integrated platform, care providers can now automate their process of curating, managing, and tracking their workforce to perform a variety of critical healthcare services.
Workpath builds intelligent technologies that help healthcare organizations and other specialized industries send work opportunities to their employees and vendors with a click. The HIPAA-compliant platform schedules, dispatches, and manages teams of all sizes. Workpath helps healthcare organizations simplify and connect. Become more digital, yet more human. www.workpath.co
