This comes in handy I would say for JCAHO compliance and making sure everyone is certified. This is a web based program so there’s nothing to download. In addition ShiftWise has other services they provide so I am guessing here this is also an invitation of sorts to view time and attendance offerings and training programs.
From the Website:
“In today's highly litigious and compliance driven healthcare management environment, making sure that each and every staff member's profile containing their documents and credentials is compliant with local and national guidelines is no longer a lofty goal but a minimum requirement. Just one expired certification, credential, document or administrative oversight can result in lawsuits, fines or violations issued by Joint Commission, State or independent regulators.”
The CEO of the company has a profile that indicated several years of developing software for the likes of Nike and ADP and is also the chief technology officer here. BD
