The foundation of Avantas’ approach to healthcare enterprise labor management is our ability to harness data to provide prescriptive guidance to our clients.
Whether this data is pulled from Smart Square in real-time via dynamic dashboards or comes from a Workforce Analysis engagement or other analytics offering, Avantas provides insight into the metrics that effect staff satisfaction, patient outcomes, and the bottom line.
Backed by unparalleled expertise in healthcare workforce analytics, Avantas helps provider organizations establish core staff resources to effectively handle volume.
Avantas strategies result in less core staff floating, cancellations, overtime, and other common staff dissatisfiers.
The right size and layering of contingency, or flexible staff resources, gives an organization the ability to cost-effectively flex up and down to handle fluctuations in demand without putting strain on core staff.
Avantas’ deep dive into volume data, staff behaviors, and more will help identify just how many layers, or different types of float pools, are necessary for each organization.
One of the most effective ways of controlling costs, coordinating care, and ensuring consistent practices across a health system is through the implementation of a centralized Resource Management Center (RMC).
