Supporting community workforce planning with Allocate eCommunity

Allocate eCommunity is an employee rostering and workforce planning tool for community healthcare providers. Care delivery in community settings is rising and will increase further over the coming years. Our community employee rostering software cuts through the admin and complexity of this workforce challenge and helps you plan staff and skills around patients’ needs in their own homes. 


The system is very responsive and means that planned patient visits can be changed live to fit around the patient.

How does Allocate eCommunity help with workforce planning?

Allocate eCommunity can help with predicting skills gaps and changes in service demands. It can also identify pressure points in service delivery and areas with an under-utilised workforce making sure staff are evenly distributed and have the right skillset. Get a free Allocate eCommunity baseline assessment to get a full analysis report on your current community rostering and where you can make savings and reduce costs.

How does Allocate eCommunity save time and reduce costs?

Allocate eCommunity significantly reduces administrative time with our auto-allocate feature which matches the right staff to patient care needs and even plans in the most efficient travel time/route between patients, taking into account the preferred method of transport by the care giver.

Can Allocate eCommunity be linked to Allocate Optima?

Yes. Allocate eCommunity is the only community scheduling tool that’s been designed specifically for community healthcare while providing a seamless extension of the Allocate’s Optima package.

How does Allocate eCommunity help increase staff engagement and wellbeing?

Allocate eCommunity’s ‘auto-allocate’ feature ensures staff schedules are distributed fairly and that the schedules are achievable. This reduces staff stress and the need for staff to work unpaid hours to complete their daily plans, as well as increasing staff engagement, productivity and retention. Allocate eCommunity also provides care coordinators with a live overview, updated by clinicians as they arrive and leave their visits, helping you to monitor your staff on their daily schedule.
