Intouch with Health announces technology partnership with SISQUAL to improve NHS staff effectiveness

August 22, 2017

Intouch with Health has partnered with SISQUAL, a global leading provider of workforce management (WFM) solutions, to bring a holistic and fully integrated solution to solve critical and complex workforce issues facing the NHS in the UK.

We will add SISQUAL’s digital staff planning solution to our service offering, which currently centres on a digital patient flow manager and performance manager dashboard that enables NHS Trusts to accurately monitor patient journeys around outpatient departments.

Mike Sanders, CEO at Intouch with Health, commented:

“Partnering with SISQUAL represents our commitment to supporting NHS in its drive towards efficiency and effectiveness even further, by giving Trusts access to a workforce management solution that will result in a higher quality of care and reduced labour costs via more effective staff deployment”.

He continued:

“Intouch’s digital patient flow management and performance management solutions are focussed on supporting the NHS in the drive towards increased efficiency through effective outpatient management, and so partnering with SISQUAL and focussing attention on effective management of hospital staff is a natural next step for us.”

SISQUAL was established in 1992 and has more than 700 customers using its workforce management solutions across Europe and Latin America.

Data from the Intouch digital patient flow manager and performance manager dashboards will flow to SISQUAL’s innovative WFM suite, where it automatically calculate team dimensions, and generate schedules for NHS managers, whilst providing tools for real-time daily operational management, capturing time and attendance records, calculating time-related salary entitlements  and producing workforce analytics.

Francis Davis, VP of International Sales at SISQUAL, commented:

“Hospital care is all about the human touch. By enhancing employees’ quality of life and morale, this increases patient service and satisfaction, resulting in an overall improvement of NHS efficiency and effectiveness”.

“Just as Intouch’s patient flow management solution gives hospital staff a real-time view of patient pathways and manage clinics more effectively, SISQUAL solutions give management teams the ability to plan and oversee their own workforce with much better effect”.
