Intouch with Health announces partnership to help improve efficiency of NHS staff scheduling

Hospital patient flow management specialist Intouch with Health has partnered with SISQUAL, a global leading provider of workforce management (WFM) solutions, to bring a holistic and fully integrated solution to solve critical and complex workforce issues facing the NHS in the UK.

Intouch will add SISQUAL’s digital staff planning solution to its service offering, which currently centres on a digital patient flow manager and performance manager dashboard that enables NHS Trusts to accurately monitor patient journeys around outpatient departments.

Data from the Intouch digital patient flow manager and performance manager dashboards will flow to SISQUAL’s innovative WFM suite, where it automatically calculate team dimensions, and generate schedules for NHS managers, whilst providing tools for real-time daily operational management, capturing time and attendance records, calculating time-related salary entitlements and producing workforce analytics.

Mike Sanders, CEO at Intouch with Health, commented: “Partnering with SISQUAL represents our commitment to supporting NHS in its drive towards efficiency and effectiveness even further, by giving Trusts access to a workforce management solution that will result in a higher quality of care and reduced labour costs via more effective staff deployment”.

“Intouch’s digital patient flow management and performance management solutions are focussed on supporting the NHS in the drive towards increased efficiency through effective outpatient management, and so partnering with SISQUAL and focussing attention on effective management of hospital staff is a natural next step for us.”
