Using AI to Address the Scheduling Demands of a Multi-generational Workforce
Using artificial intelligence and machine learning to further evolve existing automated communication platforms, hospitals will be empowered to address the next generation’s Uber-esque approach to work. As the gig economy, millennial culture and a multi-generation workforce burden the already high turn-over healthcare industry, hospital administrators are looking to technology to bring even further innovation to their scheduling departments to address the complexities of attracting and retaining staff by equipping them with the most flexible scheduling practices and tools to differentiate them from hospitals competing for staff.
