The link between workforce, risk and quality outcomes has never been so important.
The Health and Social Care Committee have said “The NHS and social care sector are facing the greatest workforce crisis in their history”, with the single biggest risk in health and care today being the workforce. Recent research by the British Medical Journal highlighted the associations of physician burnout with career engagement and quality of patient care, stating that physician burnout doubled patient safety incidents.
“…physician burnout is associated with poor function and sustainability of healthcare organisations primarily by contributing to the career disengagement and turnover of physicians and secondarily by reducing the quality of patient care. Healthcare organisations should invest more time and effort in implementing evidence-based strategies to mitigate physician burnout across specialties.” BMJ 2022;378:e070442
That is why the RLDatix and Allocate mission is so important.

COVID-19 has further highlighted the critical role that workforce management plays in healthcare, as physician burnout, staff shortages and complex staffing requirements significantly impact the delivery of care. Having the ability to rapidly deploy doctors, nurses, care staff, therapists, administrators and other front-line workers to areas where additional resourcing is required is critical to ensuring positive and life-saving patient outcomes.
