Nova Scotia Health Authorities Implement Kronos to Increase Efficiency

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Dec. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Kronos Incorporated today announced that three out of the 10 health authorities responsible for healthcare delivery in Nova Scotia -- Capital Health, Cumberland Health Authority, and IWK Health Centre -- are using its suite of workforce management solutions for increased efficiency. The decision to implement Kronos resulted from a business innovation fund sponsored by the Government of Nova Scotia, which supports initiatives that make public sector organizations more efficient.

News Facts

  • Responsible for healthcare delivery to Nova Scotia residents through a broad spectrum of services including hospitals, community health services, mental health services, and public health programs, the three district health authorities saw an opportunity to reduce overtime and increase efficiency with Kronos.
  • The health authorities implemented the Kronos time and attendance, employee scheduling, and self service applications to reduce administrative time associated with scheduling; more effectively manage union contract compliance; and identify key staffing trends. All of these benefits will lead to better control of labour costs, creation of accurate schedules, and consistent implementation across units, leading to increased operational efficiencies.
  • Through the implementation of Kronos, managers and employees can see real-time data and manage proactive and reactive scheduling. In addition, they can access work information from home including accrual balances and scheduling-related requests.
