Improving Emergency Room Doctor Scheduling By 70%

OCTOBER 1 2010

EMA LogoEmergency Medical Associates (EMA.net), a really long time client of ours, has released a press statement stating that their Emergency Department scheduling software has helped them increase scheduling efficiencies by 70%.

Dennis Cochrane MD, FACEP, noted researcher, technology innovator and EMA partner, said "The development of our ED-specific web-based scheduling system has been the culmination of many years working with EMA physicians and technology specialists to design a niche scheduling system which meets the unique demands of both academic and non-academic emergency departments."

Those "technology specialists" are the folks here at RustyBrick. We have been working with the EMA physicians and staff over the past several years, developing easy to use but sophisticated web based scheduling software and mobile based ED scheduling software for their physicians, assistants and office staff.

Doctor Cochrane says it best:

Our system is entirely browser-based and enables all of our ED physicians and providers to make requests, swap shifts, adjust their hours-worked and do schedule-making from anywhere in the world. Physicians can also use their mobile device (iPhone, Blackberry or Droid) to adjust their hours, directly view current schedules and to directly contact other physicians with a few clicks.

One of the Emergency Rooms EMA operates was asked how much of an impact this software has on the doctors. Michael Bessette, MD, FACEP, Chairman, Department of Emergency Medicine, Jersey City Medical Center, Jersey City, NJ said, "The EMA scheduling program has reduced our scheduling time by 70% and my physicians love the ease of making their own switches either on their computers or mobile devices."

Seeing numbers like that enables us at RustyBrick to see beyond just making cool, useful, easy and fast software. It shows us the impact our lines and lines of code and pixels and pixels of design make in the lives of those helping to keep America happy and healthy.
