Florida hospitals save as nurses go online to set up their work schedules
Orlando Sentinel, June 20, 2008
An increasing number of hospitals are using Web-based scheduling systems for their nurses and other shift employees. Statistics show at least 300 hospitals across the country are using them, and hundreds more are likely to start within the next year or two. Hospitals using the systems say one of the biggest benefits of the Internet-scheduling system, both in money saved and quality of service, has been a sharp reduction in the hospitals' use of outside nurses.
