US Hospital Workforce Management Software Market, Forecast to 2020

Hospitals often face an intricate balancing act in delivering the right clinical, operational and administrative mix of employees to achieve multiple goals and needs of the enterprise. Connecting all the dots for proactive and on-budget workforce strategic planning is almost impossible to achieve with paper-based systems given the increasing amount and type of data inputs needed. Automation is thus essential for smart, data-driven workforce management. As with other industries undergoing significant disruption and transformation, IT plays an essential role in helping healthcare organizations streamline and optimize operations, including workforce management. Workforce management software solutions help hospitals connect limited human resources with clinical needs based on patient population demographics and patient flow. The objective of this research service is to present a comprehensive analysis of the US Hospital Workforce Management (WFM) Software market. The study describes and defines the market for various types of software applications deployed by US hospitals to manage an array of functions related to labor allocation/human resource management including staffing and scheduling; time and attendance; payroll; patient acuity; benefits administration; and personnel management.
