CVPH Medical Center Partners With Avantas for Scheduling & Staffing ApplicationJuly 2, 2010 | Industry News Release
Avantas is proud to announce a new agreement to provide the healthcare scheduling software, Smart Square, to Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital (CVPH) Medical Center in Plattsburgh, NY.
Smart Square is a comprehensive labor management tool designed specifically for healthcare. Intuitive, flexible, and highly configurable, it can be utilized system-wide in both nursing and non-nursing units.
With Smart Square, organizations can effectively schedule core staff and proactively manage contingency staff against forecasted patient demand, while elevating labor management to an enterprise business initiative.
Interfacing seamlessly with 3rd party Time/Attendance, Payroll and HRIS systems, Smart Square provides real-time analytics and dashboards that identify opportunities to adjust staffing levels, manage incidental worked time, and prevent waste. Additionally, the Software as a Service (SaaS) platform reduces costly internal infrastructure and enables access to all the tools within the application anytime, from anywhere.
"The only certainty healthcare organizations can rely upon in these changing times is the ongoing pressure to keep productivity on target," said Chris Fox, Avantas' Senior Vice President of Growth & Innovation. "Smart Square enables hospitals to better manage their resources by making proactive, cost-conscious staffing decisions that meet the needs of their patients. With Smart Square, CVPH is poised to flourish while providing the exceptional care for which they are known."
CVPH is a 391-bed facility recognized as a leader in providing quality care and health and wellness services to North Country residents in upstate New York. "CVPH is excited to be partnering with Avantas for the implementation of Smart Square," says Rosemary Reif, Associate Vice President of Patient Services at CVPH. "After researching other automated staffing and scheduling systems, we are confident this is the product for us -- providing the sophistication, expertise, and support to streamline and maximize our employee resources!"
