How OHSU Alleviated Staffing Challenges in the OR

Challenge

Staffing in healthcare organizations is a complex and multifaceted challenge. Frontline leaders are tasked with juggling, balancing, and coordinating numerous aspects of staffing, resulting in significant pains and burdens. These pains are typically managed through manual processes, such as phone calls, spreadsheets, and extensive manual work. At any given time, organizations face skill mismatches, shortages, call-offs, ratio issues, and workload imbalances across different units and environments. These diverse issues happening simultaneously create the need for constant manual intervention by nursing teams.
