Health care staffing providers share most all of the same challenges faced by typical staffing companies. But we realize that the nature of the specialty involves key additional issues.
Health care professionals are generally in short supply. These high skilled - high demand professionals command great service and flexibility from the staffing firms they choose to work with. Often they are not a captive employee. They have another primary job or other restrictive limitations on their availability for assignments. Shift preferences, on-demand pay, and other differentiating service features are necessary to attract and retain your workforce.
The provisioning of medical care services also requires diligent credentialing management. Health care staffing providers spend countless hours and dollars on manual effort...accepting job orders, finding qualified and available persons to fill shifts, collecting hours worked, calculating billing and payroll, accounting, record keeping, and reporting. Nights and weekends are often required to get the job done. CCS has a better way using our completely automated solution that quickly pays for itself.
Ultra32 is completely modular. Get benefits immediately with just the Scheduling, Client, and Employee Management Modules or maximize use of your time by including the completely integrated back office financial processing modules to process all your payroll and billing functions.
The Ultra32 Scheduling Module is the foundation of the system available by itself, integrated with maybe the Dispatch and Pro Pack options enabled, or altogether with the complete power of Back Office payroll, billing, and job cost modules to provide a complete solution with a single repository for all customer and employee records.
Quickly create or copy a previous single one-time shift, a multi-day shift, or an ongoing recurring shift assignment. Immediately be alerted to scheduling conflicts because of other assignments, requested time off, or Do Not Send requests
View the Visual Scheduler to graphically see a calendar with each shift assignment presented as color coded cell to quickly see conflicts or unassigned shifts. Run one of many available reports to help you create a working schedule and present it to your dispatcher, employees, and clients.
When you send an employee out to a client, it is expected that the employee will have the skills, experience, and credentials relevant to the job. When you fail, at best you waste the customers money...at worst, you waste their money, lose repeat business, and expose yourself to liability claims.
The Ultra32 Dispatch system enables position codes to be defined for each client. Each client position code can have specific skill, training, or experience preferences assigned as required or desired attributes. The flexible design provides the ability for you to fully customize what criteria you wish to track and search on. Position codes are permanently associated with each client. Anytime a new shift is defined it can be mapped to the position code appropriate for the particular assignment.
Then to find an employee to assign to a shift just click on the Dispatch option to run a search. Position requirements and availability are considered before presenting a list of qualified and available persons that can be assigned. No more manual searching, a tremendous time saver. Now you can spend the time you save developing more business for your company.
Licenses, Immunizations, Training
Ultra32 Healthcare Edition includes the ability to store credential information right within the tracking record section of each active and prospective employee master record. Each tracking record is configured to track vital data like expiration dates, renew dates, amounts, or notes. From the tracking record data exception reports can be easily generated to reveal persons whose credentials are or will be falling out of compliance.
Additionally, the open framework architecture of tracking records is designed to support the collection, management, and reporting of other user-defined data elements for employees and customers. This design allows most any information to be conveniently stored right with each employee or customer record without requiring expensive system customization services. An individual record can defined to retain multiple field elements including up to 4 text, numeric, date, check boxes, and 1 memo field. We can quickly update your tracking record table structure at any time to add support for new tracking record types.
Common additional uses of Tracking Records include:
The biggest time-saving feature of Ultra32 for healthcare staffing providers is it's One Step Entry design. There is no need to manually create timeslip records to generate payroll and billing. Through the shift assignment you have already identified the customer, employee, shift time, and appropriate pay/bill rate code. Everything is already known to generate both payroll and billing. Just update those schedules where the actual hours worked were different from those scheduled and the manual effort is done. Payroll, billing, job cost, sales history, and work history are generated right from completed schedules.
Ultra32 includes a complete payroll system which automatically produces payroll checks from completed schedules without any further data entry. In addition, management reports, Federal, State, and local tax reports are available. With all this information automatically provided, it is actually easier, and much less expensive, to produce your own payroll versus sending it out to a payroll service.
