Challenges of Traditional Timesheet Management in Healthcare

Traditionally, healthcare workers have used paper timesheets to record their work hours. These timesheets are usually kept in a binder or folder and require manual entry of data. This method of timesheet management can be time-consuming and prone to errors. Healthcare workers may forget to log their hours, or they may make mistakes when entering their information. This can lead to discrepancies in pay and can cause unnecessary stress for both the healthcare worker and their manager.

In addition, paper timesheets can be difficult to access on the go. If a healthcare worker needs to check their timesheet while away from their workplace, they may not have access to the necessary information. This can cause delays in pay and can make it difficult for healthcare workers to keep track of their hours.

Benefits of App-Based Timesheet Management

App-based timesheet management offers numerous benefits over traditional methods. Firstly, it allows healthcare workers to access their timesheets on the go. By using a mobile app, healthcare workers can view their timesheets and enter their hours from anywhere with an Internet connection. This means they can log their hours as soon as they complete a shift, reducing the likelihood of errors from having to input times with hindsight. With WorkTracker it’s possible to have your timesheets digitally signed off at the end of each shift at any work location.

Secondly, app-based timesheet management makes it easy for healthcare workers to track their hours accurately. The app can automatically calculate hours worked and can inform healthcare workers in their calendar if they forget to log a shift.This ensures that healthcare workers are paid accurately and on time, greatly reducing error while at the same time improving job satisfaction.
