Throughout the pandemic, businesses and individuals have been reminded of the fragility of time and the notion that it can never be recovered. With pre-pandemic routines shifting, organizations and their employees are now questioning how to make more time for the things that matter most. Perhaps the industry hit hardest by this is one that is arguably the most in need of more time— healthcare.
Healthcare employees traditionally must complete lots of administrative work because of strict industry regulations. This has only amplified during the pandemic. Additionally, healthcare professionals often waste time doing indirect patient care like searching for medical supplies or time reporting for regulatory and billing use. Unfortunately, this pattern hinders care efficiency and takes focus away from the patient.
High-intensity and unsafe work environments have quickly revealed the pivotal role healthcare organizations play in decision-making that protects the needs of frontline employees. With 42% of physicians experiencing burnout, Kishau Rogers launched healthcare startup Time Study already knowing the solution must not just improve operational efficiency, but it must enhance the lives of the people treating the patients.
Valuing the Time of Healthcare Employees
Time Study is a system of time management that focuses on the heartbeat of the healthcare industry: humans. The cloud solution uses intelligent time tracking to monitor how physicians and other healthcare employees spend their time at work. This equips hospitals with data insights to make human-centered business decisions that improve the employee and patient experience.
