Kimedics: Simplifying Healthcare Workforce Management

Many healthcare establishments are strategizing how to align temporary staffing with HR-related disruptions caused by the pandemic. They continue to open up part-time positions, partner with 1099 contractors, and leverage locum tenens agencies' services to build the required workforce and maintain the quality and control of operations. This, however, is much easier said than done. In this current environment, healthcare organizations are finding it challenging to manage staff workflows efficiently; and unplanned emergencies and compliance are time consuming distractions to an already stressed system. Smarter scheduling of the rather ‘limited’ workforce with a proactive, holistic approach to staffing and scheduling is needed now more than ever. Automated scheduling is the sensible solution to centralizing the entire workforce and scheduling information while reducing the manual overheads related to compliance tracking, overtime monitoring, and staff optimization --ultimately reducing labor costs and prompting the workforce to deliver quality care. Helping healthcare establishments achieve this in its entirety is the mission of Kimedics.

The Kimedics workforce management platform provides an ecosystem that allows clinical organizations to collaborate internally with their entire staff and across organizations. By centralizing and automating the workforce operations, the platform acts as a powerful tool that saves time in workforce scheduling and helps drive collaborative care delivery. The platform is segmented into different workflows so managers can quickly and easily access the information they need, whether it’s provider-specific data, schedules across multiple locations, full roster information, or time-sheets. "Our technology automates your team's most time-consuming tasks of workforce scheduling so you can spend less time on administrative work and more time on improving patient care," says Sarah Ramsey, CEO, and Founder of Kimedics.

The platform works as a collaboration portal for various clients, from independent medical groups like hospital groups and physician groups to any organization that is managing the staffing operations for clinician teams. Its roster management component helps keep track of all the inputs about clinicians, internal staff, and agency providers. By inviting staffing partners to collaborate and access a mutual roster in the same web-based system, organizations can eliminate redundant data entry tasks and save time.

In context to scheduling operations, Kimedics’ platform reduces the administrative burden while scheduling and helps tackle the issues around credentialing, privileging, and aligning scheduling with respect to specific rules. By collaborating in a unified manner, healthcare organizations get to optimize resources, and vendors can obtain better visibility into client needs. The platform also has time-sheet capabilities that work in sync with roster management, enabling organizations to forecast compensations for providers and external staff accurately.

The company also offers a mobile app extension of their solution, enabling providers and clinical staff to access real-time schedules on-the-go. “Our goal is to continue to simplify the staffing process for our clients, so we are very committed to investing in the user experience of our technology,” asserts Sarah. The success stories that the Kimedics workforce management platform has scripted are aplenty.

In a bid to broaden the scope of their solution, Kimedics is working on expanding mobile offerings, integrations as well as additional tracking of practice operations drivers like productivity. “Right now, we’re doing a very good job of showing all of the cost perspective, but we are looking to overlay the patient volume unit account data in terms of encounters and worker views of patients to give a revenue indicator. Cost and revenue drivers will be accessible on one easy to use platform,” she concludes. The future looks bright for Kimedics.
