Health care providers are faced with growing shortages of all types of health care professionals and a widening gap of unfilled positions - particularly within the nursing unit. One potential solution lies in greater optimization of existing staff with predictive analytics, a technology-enabled service that allows health care providers to forecast patient demand and then align nurse scheduling and staffing to meet census needs. This session will explore ways to deploy predictive analytics at your organization to increase staff satisfaction, enhance patient care and reduce labor spend.
