Hospitals have been facing the direct effects of nurse and physician burnout at alarming rates over the past few years. While administrative staff often bear the burden of creating and managing physician schedules, care teams are significantly impacted by out-of-date and inaccessible schedules. To address these challenges, many healthcare institutions are adopting automated physician scheduling software, moving away from manual tasks that waste hundreds of hours each year, and ensuring that schedules are always current and easily accessible for all staff members.
