As the needs of the healthcare industry continue to change, ABILITY continues to diversify. We recently announced our latest acquisition: ShiftHound, a leader in cloud-based SaaS healthcare workforce management solutions. ShiftHound provides applications that improve scheduling effectiveness and operational efficiency while ensuring compliance.
ShiftHound’s technology is designed to help healthcare providers understand the acuity of their patient populations and then bridge that understanding into how they staff. It’s a complex problem, but optimizing the staffing balance is critical to care quality, compliance with licensing and credential requirements, and a provider’s bottom line.
The technology works for providers of all sizes and all sites across the continuum of care, including acute, post-acute and ambulatory. ShiftHound’s offerings include:
- Healthcare Workforce Schedule Optimization, which allows customers to optimize shift-based provider schedules, reducing overtime cost and ensuring the highest quality of care;
- Time & Attendance, which tracks and analyzes individual provider work hours and overtime, increasing operational efficiency; and
- Credential Management, which defines and tracks required certifications, licenses and mandatory training and education to ensure compliance in providing standard levels of care.
These workforce management solutions complement ABILITY’s existing revenue cycle management and clinical management applications, furthering our mission of helping simplify the administrative and clinical complexities of healthcare. With this acquisition, we continue our work to solve our customers’ toughest challenges around increasing efficiencies and improving care quality.
