No matter which department of a hospital you have been assigned to, scheduling and verifying staff for shifts is one of your most challenging responsibilities. This is a difficult job for any type of administrator, but when your scheduling decisions involve life and death situations, the pressure can be overwhelming.
Implement these tips into your scheduling process to streamline your job and make sure that you always have the right amount of hospital staff on hand when you need them.
A number of software companies have developed comprehensive programs to help with administrative scheduling. A program that is specifically designed for the hospital environment, would help analyze patient volumes and help you decide the number of employees in each area you need to have available. These software solutions are only meant as a guideline however, you still need to double check using your personal knowledge of your hospital's needs.[click to continue...]
Leaders of communities both large and small depend on some sort of alert system to deal with a crisis. Whether you are in charge of a small college campus or a major municipality you have the responsibility of protecting that community in the event of an emergency. This is a multi-faceted project that starts with your emergency notification system.
There are more effective and convenient ways today than radio or television broadcasts to relay emergency information, even to groups of thousands. With a mobile device in practically everyone's pocket, this is your best tool to focus on for a successful emergency notification system.
Choose The Right System
Emergencies come in all shapes and sizes calling for an alert system that is versatile. You don't want to create the same type of reaction for a scheduled interruption of water service as you would for an impending tornado. A flexible alert system is one where you can use voice or email messaging for low level warnings as well as an SMS text message alert for imminent danger.[click to continue...]

Everywhere you turn these days in the startup / business community you hear about pivoting your business, it has become one of the most overused buzz words of the past couple years. However as overused as it is, it can play a pretty important part of your companies toolkit. Pivoting is what eventually brought DialMyCalls to fruition after years of running a wake up call service I had started back in the year 2000 which was aptly named WakeUpLand. Here's a quick story about how our little pivot was an entire game changer.
AND SO IT BEGINS
It all started when I created WakeUpLand out of my dorm room as a side project to better my web design skills. At the time there were no other wake up call services online, so it seemed like an interesting niche to target. After a couple weeks of getting the site up and launching it an order actually came in, at the time that $0.99 order blew my mind. Orders came in every couple days and I had many tired zombie-like days after waking up at 4am to make sure everyone received their wake up calls - I had not thought about the fact that I would be the one making all of these calls.[click to continue...]
DialMyCalls is excited to announce a brand new feature that has been requested by you, our loyal customers – separate messages for live answer calls and voicemails.
We rely heavily on customer feedback when it comes to improving our service and our new feature that allows two separate recordings is a direct result of your suggestions! Customers of DialMyCalls can now create a recording that will play on a live answer and then create a second recording that will be played if an answering machine is detected. Customize your voice broadcasts more than ever by selecting two separate recordings.
Traditional Voice Broadcasting Method
Choosing this method will allow you to select one recording that will play if our AccurateAMD™ detects a live answer or an answering machine - this is how our service worked prior to the introduction of our new feature which allows separate recordings to be selected.[click to continue...]
If you are in charge of a company that is supplying electrical power, then your responsibilities are immense. Not only are you making sure the homes and businesses in your community have a continual supply of necessary power, you are overseeing where that power is being produced and the impact it has on the environment.
Power management requires a great deal of organization and a reliable means of quick communication to control the effect it has on the planet.
At the heart of the electric company are the people it serves. You most likely have numerous entities to consider. Homes and businesses of course rely on you, but so do institutions such as schools and local hospitals. To create an electrical company that better serves the community you have to first make a concerted effort to know who your community consists of.
To do this, focus some energy on creating a solid means of open communication. Right now, it most likely exists as not much more than distributing monthly bills. Yet what if you made the community and institutions more involved in your service, what kind of impact would that have on the production and distribution of electricity and its effect on the environment?[click to continue...]
