OnShift Introduces iPad App for Labor Cost SavingsLong-Term Care and Senior Living Providers Gain Instant ROI Estimates With New App (October 17, 2011)
CLEVELAND, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 10/17/11 -- OnShift, a leading provider of staff scheduling and shift management software for healthcare, today introduced OnShift Scrilla, an iPad App that determines potential labor cost savings for long-term care and senior living providers.
With Scrilla, providers share brief information about their organization, including number of facilities, overtime rate and adherence to their labor budget. With just one tap, Scrilla crunches the numbers and displays potential savings that can be achieved with better staffing and labor management practices. The savings can be explored by area of expense as well as in total.
With massive Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement reductions, uncertainties due to healthcare reform and a weak economy, long-term care and senior living providers are quickly adapting their businesses to weather the storm. Controlling labor costs is a key priority, as labor is a provider's largest expense. Scrilla provides a fast, easy and fun way to get a snapshot of the potential bottom line impact of better staffing strategies.
"We wanted to give providers a simple way to understand how much impact even modest improvements to staffing can make to the success of their businesses, and Scrilla does just that," stated Mark Woodka, CEO, OnShift. "OnShift works with hundreds of providers across the spectrum of senior care. Our customers are making dramatic improvements to their staffing strategies and significantly reducing their labor costs. Never before have we seen such an intense focus on cutting costs and operating more efficiently. We're pleased we can help providers achieve these goals during such challenging times."
Long-term care and senior living providers use OnShift staff scheduling software to control labor costs and improve efficiencies. With OnShift, customers typically reduce overtime to under 2-3% of their labor budgets. This reduction can save even small organizations millions of dollars each year. In addition, OnShift customers gain significant savings through more precise management and scheduling of staff, as well as minimizing the use of staffing agency workers. OnShift's predictive and proactive tools and controls, combined with an easy-to-use interface, help providers realize their business objectives.
Scrilla is available for free download at the iTunes App Store http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/scrilla/id469592899?mt=8. OnShift is showcasing Scrilla at the LeadingAge Conference in Washington D.C., booth #2427.
