Allocate Software: Mobilizing the UK’s Healthcare Workforce
As the pandemic overburdens healthcare systems throughout the world, many countries are turning to wartime tactics to manage the surge in hospital cases. Bracing for its peak, the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK has set up large-scale temporary hospitals to meet the increasing need for ICU beds and equipment. Meanwhile, thousands of students and retired physicians and nurses are entering and returning to the workforce to staff these facilities and assist on the frontlines of the crisis.
With staff sickness and unrelenting demand for medical services pushing the healthcare system to its limits, the NHS is leveraging Allocate’s workforce management platform to understand and maximize the professional capacity and availability of the nation’s medical workforce. Through the platform, the NHS can manage the payroll and schedule of tens of thousands of full-time and temporary medical workers.
Allocate also created a resource center so that its users, healthcare workers and hospitals across the country, have the help, guidance and services they need to respond to COVID-19.
