As we bid farewell to 2023, it's time to reflect on the incredible journey we've embarked upon at BlueSky. In the ever-evolving landscape of hospital staffing, this year has been nothing short of transformative. Join us as we take a look back at the milestones, innovations, and collaborative successes that defined our 2023.... and join us for a peek at 2024!
Export Builder: In 2023, we launched "Export Builder", making it easier for users to configure, customize and export almost any kind of information they need from the system.
Why we love it: Users will have even more flexibility in getting the data they need, easily and efficiently. We look forward to expanding Export Builder into more pages!
Mobile App Push Notifications: We enhanced the mobile app experience by introducing push notifications for unsubmitted timesheets and alerts for new job matches! Additionally, caregivers receive twice-daily notifications informing them of the number of new job postings.
Why we love it: This key update keeps caregivers informed and engaged - ensuring they never miss out on potential opportunities.
Shift Work Scheduling Calendar: We rolled out a series of updates to enhance per diem scheduling. This feature simplifies the process of scheduling various shifts at a single facility by allowing efficient bulk scheduling.
Why we love it: Users can easily create and manage shifts over extended periods, making scheduling much, much easier.
Redesigned Facility Calendar: The refreshed calendar gives users a complete view of all shifts and includes color-coding for quick identification. Our new "Use for 'New Shift'" module pre-fills key fields like Unit, Degree and Speciality.
Why we love it: We're committed to making per diem scheduling easier and more efficient and the updated calendar speeds up the scheduling process.
Facility "Shifts" Customization: We overhauled Facility Shifts, adding more functionality surrounding shift definition. Now, users can see all of the available shift types and this feature allows for facility-specific parameters directly in the grid.
Why we love it: 2023 has been all about speed and efficiency. This feature helps users assign shifts faster!
Let's take a look at what we've got cooking for 2024!
- Linked Required Documents: Fulfilling one requirement covers related ones
- Automated Release of Jobs: Automated release system for subcontracting company tiers
- New Workspace Metrics
- Expanded "Bulk Change" Options
- Removing Shift Applications: Delete or recall shift applications, giving you and your caregivers more control and flexibility.
- Lots of Updates to our Mobile App, including features to make scheduling easier for caregivers and new notifications that support caregiver-initiated cancellations
