The question that needs to be answered over and over is..."Who is working where, when and with which doctor? Organizing this in a group practice, especially in a multi-office practice, is an important service. On the smallest scale, each day the doctor is assigned a chair...there could be a staff member(s) assigned with him. This might appear on the column heading with the doctor's name, i.e. Elchner/Elaine/Dedham [font reduced to conserve space in the header].
Further enhancements would include the ability to visualize your staffing forward and backward in a database that displays a weekly/monthly/yearly calendar view to show holiday, vacation, illness, half-days (reduced hours).
Since some of this is tracked now on the Time Clock, the Staff Scheduler may best be integrated with the time clock. In some ways it is an enrichment of the time clock.
Again, this information could be brought down to the "Compass" especially for the Office Managers "Compass Screen"
Similar scheduler for Doctors would also be of value; a master display screen may be developed to provide an integration of doctor's schedule/doctor's on-call/staff schedule. This may display errors where an on-call doctor is scheduled for vacation or a doctor is scheduled but the assistant has not.
Thanks for the request.
