Realtime Rostering has been designed to roster all staff in healthcare settings which includes; trainee and consultant doctors, nurses, midwives and, support workers and help drive cost savings. Updating staff rotas in seconds, the system provides accurate and update to date information that can be accessed by anyone at any time.

Our system offers a sophisticated e-rostering solution that is supported by our 10 years of experience in delivering tried and tested tools in workforce management. The systems’ main functionality allows for accurate workforce management to ensure the right staff are working the right shifts at the right time with a robust auditing and reporting functionality.

Bryan Kessie, Head of Technical Development at Skills for Health, says “Skills for Health recognises that times are changing in the healthcare sector and with the Government’s latest plans to make the NHS more digital – it’s imperative that the sector embraces technology.

“Rostering and administration can be stressful tasks to perform and leave a lot of room for error, which can lead to over or understaffing and extra budget being spent on temporary staff. We’ve designed Realtime Rostering to be an all-encompassing system that allows staff of all levels to access the right information to ensure the workforce is efficient and sustainable.”

Our new system also offers seamless integration with existing systems and is easy to use. Our teams are on hand to help trusts to take a firmer grip on workforce management while updating staff rotas in seconds.

The software allows for teams to plan up to a year in advance, with the flexibility to plan around unexpected absences, providing staff with a better chance of maintaining a work-life balance. In allowing staff to plan annual leave and holidays in advance, while still maintaining the appropriate cover for roles, staff can feel confident that their shifts are covered and the team are ready to handle the cover.
