Riverview Hospital, a long-standing user of Kronos
Incorporated workforce management solutions, has expanded the use of
Kronos by integrating employee
management, and labor
analytics applications with its existing time
and attendance application. The integrated workforce management
solution will further help the hospital control labor costs, minimize
compliance risk, and improve workforce productivity.
Among the top benefits that an integrated Kronos solution will provide
Riverview is the improved ability to accurately process payroll the
first time it’s administered, which will significantly increase cost
and time savings as well as enhance employee satisfaction.
Other benefits include extra focus on quality care delivery while
balancing costs through the creation of accurate schedules, ensuring
optimal staffing every shift, each day. In addition, staff at
Riverview will benefit from the autonomy gained using the
Automating and streamlining leave policies with the Kronos absence
management application will help the hospital more effectively manage
unscheduled absences and reduce administrative burdens and compliance
risks associated with federal and state leave laws.
The Kronos labor analytics application will help the hospital monitor
labor data in real time to preempt costly labor-related errors and
further improve productivity.
For added innovation in how the hospital collects time-worked data
from employees, Riverview also purchased Kronos®
InTouch™ time clocks to provide employees more control
over their time, enabling them to easily check accrual balances,
request time off, and view schedules – all in real time.

desired advanced, real-time visibility into all aspects of labor data
to more effectively manage budgets, enhance employee engagement, and
deliver a superior patient experience. Implementing additional Kronos
workforce management applications will empower us to take an even more
innovative and proactive approach to managing our workforce.”
Susan M. Reese, MBA, RN, CPHIMS, director, healthcare practice
“As healthcare organizations move for
speed and efficiency to meet requirements set forth by new legislative
reforms, it’s time for them to reevaluate and redesign critical
workforce management processes, with a focus on what provides the
safest practices to support positive outcomes for both patients and
staff. Riverview Hospital is on the right path with an integrated,
real-time approach to workforce management.”
