There are many jems at #HIMSS10 in Atlanta this year. One of them that you should make sure not to miss is “Your Nurse is On”! The folks of http://www.yournurseison.com/ have created a call in system for your nurse pools.
In the simplest terms, your facility is able to apply union rules and state staffing rules to your nursing pools and call whichever nurses you need in the order they should be called. Most medical facilities do this today using very expensive nursing labor. Instead of using nurses and staff to make the calls, you can use http://www.yournurseison.com/ to make them automatically!
This type of system has proven itself time and again around the country for school districts. Large districts use a very similar system to call every day for substitute teachers. The http://www.yournurseison.com/ system handles this same need for nurses. Each nurse can be paged, called, emailed, or texted their possible assignment. The system can be automatically responded to with either a yes or no. Very slick, and much more effecient than using your staff to make phone calls instead of caring for patients.
Check them out on Monday, March 1st at HIMSS10 at Booth 3606!
