St. Louis medical center shifts the way nurses fill its shifts

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, February 13, 2008
St. John's Mercy Medical Center in St. Louis has implemented a Web-based work force management system created by San Diego-based Bidshift, Inc. The scheduling program gives the medical center's more than 2,000 nurses greater flexibility in identifying extra shifts and linking the vacancies to their expertise and interests. The shift was made as hospital executives sought an up-to-date method of communicating open nursing shifts and attracting qualified workers.
