Real-time healthcare requires solutions that address nurse staffing in real-time

100% coverage of open shifts while saving time and resources at Medical City Fort Worth

By deploying LiveProcess, a previously manual procedure has been automated, enabling the staffing coordinator to alert all or selected staff about shift openings with the push of a button.

The results have been striking:
• Reduced staffing coordinators by half
• From 70% coverage of shift vacancies to 100% coverage

“We are now able to fill all open shifts with a fraction of the time and effort that was previously required. The system is extremely easy to use, and affords me lots of flexibility in how I communicate.”

 Monica Demar, Staffing Coordinator, Medical City Fort Worth
