Brief Description

The software provides an automated solution to the manual system of staff scheduling, payroll preparation, and personnel management throughout all nursing units, as well as ACCM, Radiology, Pathology and Psychiatry non-nursing units.  This system allows clinicians and administrative staff to automate these functions into an integrated workforce management tool.  This system provides a mechanism to generate consistent unit-level data which can be aggregated to hospital-level information and assist with decision-making.  Routine administrative tasks such as producing staff schedules, time and attendance, credential tracking, and meeting daily skill mix requirements are streamlined using this system.

The Nightingale tools include:

  1. IntraGale a web based access module for staff
  2. ShiftMaker for prospective scheduling and payroll
  3. Credential Manager for an educational/credentialing database
  4. CentralStaffer for centralized aggregated reporting of all nursing units
  5. Clockworks Manager for payroll and invoice management
  6. Admin Manager for system administration
