“Really helped us to improve our staffing operations, consistently providing insight, excellent fill rates and 100% DE efficiency year on year”
– Director of Workforce
We take a uniquely flexible approach to the way we use technology to support the delivery of our healthcare staffing solutions.
We put the needs of our healthcare customers first, ensuring that whatever technology solution is needed, operational change is managed carefully, and disruption is minimised.
We will underpin our people-led solutions with your technology of choice, be that an existing or preferred e-rostering system, or Litmus’s proven Staff Bank and Direct Engagement-enabled Vendor Management System (VMS).
Our teams have specialist training on a wide range of rostering and staffing systems and apps. We’re accustomed to wrapping our people and processes around third-party systems, particularly in NHS settings. We’re also experienced at implementing collaborative technology solutions, where apps and systems are needed to harmonize rates across linked regional organisations or services.
Where something doesn’t exist, or a bespoke configuration is required, we can build bespoke APIs and leverage our strategic partnership agreements with key healthcare technology suppliers.
Whatever your system of choice , Litmus will ensure that the technology supports the best possible experience for bank workers, operational teams and managers, with accessible mobile apps to facilitate shift notifications, skills mapping, self-booking, and timesheeting.
Our specialist data analytics teams will also configure reports and generate the insights needed to accurately predict demand and align staffing levels.
Monthly reports are built to match NHSE reporting requirements as standard, with drill-down functionality to facilitate more bespoke and detailed data reporting needs.
