Medical workforce technology should support doctors work and their autonomy and positively impact patient care. In many ways it should operate in the background, while making it easy for them to see work well in advance, to book sessions or shifts, to swap and to book leave and plan study. It needs to do all this while protecting their safety and working hours and ensuring fairness across teams.
Safe patient care, staff experience as well as the sustainability of services are all influenced by effective doctors rostering, job planning and rotas. However, there is a delicate balance to create plans and rosters that meet the needs of all three, this is made harder by staffing gaps and often complex rules.
