Workforce management software that delivers more for less

In an industry of activity-based funding and with payroll representing at least 70 per cent of their costs, many aged-care providers rely on e-rostering to coordinate teams with the right skills at the right time to ensure the best patient outcomes while better managing staff costs. Allocate’s Solution has been developed in Australia to specifically meet the needs of local providers. We work closely with our customers to provide a comprehensive workforce management solution for all staff groups across the healthcare sector.

The ability to manage existing staff resources is becoming increasingly vital in the aged care sector as it faces evolving legislation, changes to the funding model and financial pressure from rising costs and increased competition. Our extensive experience with aged care providers has identified the need for a tailored workforce management package: Aligning better rostering practices with payroll and award automation to support aged care providers in managing their workforce as effectively and efficiently as possible.

Delivering benefits for all staff groups

Nurses and Carers
Allocate’s Solution objectively aligns nursing and carer resources to the staffing requirements driven by residents and patients. The functionality replaces existing paper-based
processes across departments to enable smarter, safer, fairer and more efficient rostering of staff. Reporting functionality across the system allows the organisation to identify trends and track changing behaviours over time.

Casual and Agency Staff
A next-generation, integrated temporary staff management system which ensures that appropriately skilled staff are deployed for vacant shifts, reducing both the clinical risk and agency spend. The capability also streamlines the entire process of allocating available staff, managing the role of external agencies and providing a direct interface with HR and payroll systems.

Non-Clinical and Allied Health Professionals 
Designed specifically to manage and monitor hours worked, as well as absence of non-clinical personnel, the capability provides managers with a full operational picture of all staff across an organisation. AHP-specific functionality objectively aligns the resources of Allied Health Professionals to resident demand, to enable safer, more efficient and objective staff rostering across all areas. Multiple staff groups resourced from multiple areas and cost centres can be easily viewed collectively in one roster.
