Workforce management platform expands healthcare sector
Deputy, an Atlanta-based workforce management platform, announced new features for its healthcare sector.
Currently, more than 400 healthcare businesses, including assisted living facilities and nursing homes, have migrated to Deputy, the company said. Its features for mobile workforce includes biometric facial recognition, training and certification tracking, and an updated compliance rules engine. Workers can be identified when they clock in and out via facial biometrics.
“Healthcare organizations face unique labor challenges, in that many healthcare settings have the front-line staff also managing the scheduling,” said Jason Walker, President of Americas, Deputy. “The increasingly mobile workforce is now talking about patient acuity, quality outcomes and avoidable readmissions — all of which requires intense focus on the patient. Deputy ensures the right people are working at the right time to meet these new demands.”
The biometric facial recognition feature is available on any iPad with iOS 9 or later, the company said.
“Deputy has truly empowered both me and my employees. We're all able to focus our attention back on what's most important — our residents — while my employees are also able to feel more invested in their contributions to our business than ever before,” said Kathy Lois Jones, the owner of Elder Village.
