Sligo University Hospital to implement NCHD e-rostering

Sligo University Hospital Medical Specialty has partnered with Allocate Software to begin the process for implementing E-rostering software for NCHDs. A Project Board was set up with project clinical lead Katherine Finan  as executive sponsor. It approved a local team consisting of a Project Manager and Systems Administrator, to work with Allocate. The initial scope of the project is to deliver “Medics On-Line” and “Medics on-Duty” to 50 NCHD staff from the Medical Specialty. A clear communication strategy supports the implementation and E-Rostering roll-out process and the planning of next steps with the Project Board.

The objectives of the project at Sligo University Hospital are as follows:

  • To implement Medics Online and Medics OnDuty where the necessary hardware has been made available.
  • Improved staff utilisation.
  • Reduction in avoidable costs.
  • Reduction in administration tasks and functions.
  • Improved reporting.
  • Improved access to rosters.
  • Improved Workforce planning.

Katherine Finan, Clinical Lead and Project Sponsor says,

”I am excited to be working with the team from Allocate Software and our local implementation group on this e-rostering project”.

Allocate has previously worked with Letterkenny General Hospital to introduce e-rostering as shown in this case study.
