Visier, a Canadian provider of Workforce Intelligence Solutions, has introduced a new applied big data solution for healthcare providers, which will allow hospitals to connect their workforce to patient satisfaction, driving better outcomes.
The Visier Workforce Intelligence for Healthcare includes workforce analytics and planning capabilities that are purpose-built to meet the specific needs of healthcare providers.
It is reported that with this new solution, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and other providers can now answer critical questions about their specialised workforces.
Visier CEO and founder John Schwarz said: "On one hand there has been unprecedented growth in demand for healthcare services.
"On the other, market and regulatory pressures require hospitals to continuously improve patient satisfaction and reduce costs and readmission rates to obtain full value from insurance reimbursements.
"The biggest factor in both dimensions is the workforce, a highly specialised and very mobile group of skilled caregivers who are constantly in short supply."
Additionally, with Visier healthcare providers can ensure they build the right workforce to meet their future requirements, in time.
It will help in understanding the current workforce costs and forecast based on multiple scenarios, integrate data from a merged hospital in weeks and use this to plan the new organisation.
The solution will also help identify the cost impacts of altering the balance of contingent and permanent staff, as well as apply and adjust historic trends for turnover and cost changes to develop and monitor detailed workforce plans.
It will also easily and securely share plans, as well as offer analyses to business stakeholders to improve decision making and on target delivery.
