Organize Physicians’ Schedules More Easily
Facilitate the reconciliation of personal and professional life
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.
- Reduced time spent scheduling
- Improvement of physicians’ quality of life
- Equitable distribution of work shifts
- More efficient communication within the team
- Simplified time-off and schedule change management
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.

To automate schedule creation, our platform uses an algorithm that takes into account physician unavailability, minimum on-call coverage, specialties, equity targets and a host of other factors. The more complex a physician's schedule, the more our automated scheduling can save time.
Physicians enter their time-off requests directly into their calendars. This ensures that the scheduler has the correct data on hand. Time-off requests are no longer dispersed over several communication channels, such as voice messages, paper documents, emails or messages by a third party.
Physicians can exchange or transfer certain shifts themselves, without going through an intermediary. The scheduler chooses whether or not to approve the changes before they become effective.
The schedules created on the platform can be viewed from external calendars such as Google Calendar, iCal and Outlook. It’s easy to share availability with people outside the department.
Residents can see which supervising physician is associated with their shift in their calendar and vice-versa. As soon as the scheduler modifies a supervising physician-resident shift, the system informs them both automatically.
How to Integrate Automated Scheduling Into a Department?
- We work with the department to bring the solution online according to the objectives.
- We analyze the schedules in order to configure the solution according to reality.
- We train designated staff and communicate access to users.
