Physician Scheduling


Scheduling for Physician

The Petal platform reduces the time spent scheduling by up to 80%, while providing physicians with schedules that meet their requests and are accessible from mobile devices.

Key Benefits

  • Optimization of available clinical resources
  • Reduction of administrative costs
  • Better visibility of healthcare coverage
  • Improved staff satisfaction and autonomy
  • Real-time centralization of data relating to clinical activities

Better Work-Life Balance

The Petal algorithm produces a schedule that respects the physicians’ requests as much as possible and the medical department’s rules such as the distribution of night and weekend shifts. It thus improves the entire team’s working conditions.

Key benefits

Simplified Shift Exchanges

Physicians can offer their colleagues shifts through the platform, depending on the permissions granted by the scheduler. The result is less communication errors and fewer delays.

More Time for Patients

Automated scheduling generates an optimal schedule with just a few clicks and frees up time for value-added tasks. The schedule is created while taking into account fully-customizable constraints. It can be changed at any time for maximum flexibility.
More time
  • The platform automatically creates a schedule with shifts better distributed. This has a positive effect on the work-life balance of physicians who get more time to rest between shifts.
  • As a scheduler, I can let doctors organize their own schedules without having to intervene. Once the shift changes have been made, the schedule is immediately updated. It's very useful.
  • I’ve worked with other solutions. What I like about Petal is that the on-call scheduler has full control over schedule creation and management.
  • It’s very easy to see which doctor is on call and to access my colleagues’ contact details. The information is accessible from my phone and is always up-to-date.
