Kronos Announces Release of Kronos Workforce Analytics for Healthcare

Kronos Incorporated has introduced Kronos Workforce Analytics for Healthcare, a fully integrated analytics and decision support solution that gives healthcare providers access to all relevant workforce and operational data in one platform.

Thanks to this, providers will now be able to make more intelligent, fact-based decisions while maximizing high-quality patient care within the most advanced, clinically focused workforce management suite on the market today.

"Healthcare decision makers have access to so much data in so many formats that it can be overwhelming and confusing to sort through,” said Brian Graves, global practice leader, healthcare practice group, Kronos, in a statement.

Graves said that the new Kronos Workforce Analytics for Healthcare solution consolidates all of that data, enabling better, fact-based, real-time decisions, and ultimately improving the overall quality of patient care.

Mark Smith, CEO and EVP Research, Ventana Research said that the use of analytics in business is pervasive, but it is surprising how few organizations are using analytics to more effectively manage their workforce.

Smith said that with its easy-to-use interface, deep functionality, and rock-solid reliability, Kronos Workforce Analytics for Healthcare may finally encourage those healthcare organizations that are not yet using analytics to make that leap.

Kronos is the global leader in workforce management solutions that enable organizations to control labor costs, minimize compliance risk, and improve workforce productivity.

Recently, Kronos announced that Sainsbury's has selected a workforce management solution from Kronos to control labour costs and improve workforce productivity.

The company noted the Kronos solution will manage the time and attendance and scheduling of more than 150,000 colleagues in over 1,000 locations across the UK.As part of Sainsbury's commitment to being a “Great Place to Work,” it required a workforce management solution to support employees by offering a consistent, fair, and equitable approach to working practices.
