Melbourne’s Eastern Health deploys Allocate roster system

Healthcare workforce management software provider Allocate Software has inked a five-year contract with one of Melbourne’s largest metropolitan public health services, Eastern Health, for the implementation of a rostering and time and attendance system.

Allocate will implement its rostering and time and attendance solution across all 50 Eastern Health facilities, which it says will benefit more than 9000 staff by providing four key benefits:

  • Automated rostering that removes the administrative burden of manual processes.
  • Fairer and more equitable access for employees to overtime or desirable shifts.
  • Improved ability to match appropriately-skilled staff to patient needs and roster requirements.
  • Reduced operational costs.

Eastern Health provides healthcare for people and communities in Melbourne’s east, delivering clinical services to more than 750,000 people through programmes in more than 50 facilities.

Matt Durston, general manager, Allocate Software, says Eastern Health went through a rigorous procurement process. “The team chose Allocate Software for its ability to meet Eastern Health’s core requirements around cost effectiveness, flexibility, and ease of use.”

“Allocate Software is excited to work with Eastern Health to automate and optimise its workforce management. An automated rostering solution creates more time for staff to spend on patient care, offers more equitable access to overtime opportunities, and lowers operational costs.”

RECOVERING FROM RANSOMWARE

Ransomware is a type of malware that blocks access to your files and systems until you pay a ransom.

It quickly affected many systems with hackers requiring users to pay money for the decryption keys.
