Did you know?

The main cause of burnout in physicians is the lack of control over their schedules and hours worked.

Improve your emergency departement physicians' quality of life

Improve your emergency department physicians' quality of life

Creating schedules to accommodate physician preferences is an especially difficult task in emergency departments. Nights, weekends, consecutive shifts, contracts with the hospital and fair distribution are just a few examples of the hurdles. Petal Scheduling’s solution has proven its worth: it generates the best possible schedule according to the rules and constraints set by the scheduler.

“The software automatically creates a schedule with better-distributed shifts, which has a positive effect on physicians' work-life balance since they have more time to rest between their shifts.”
