News Facts

  • A community-owned hospital offering a variety of services from support groups, nursing homes, and home health agencies, Murray-Calloway needed a centralized, automated workforce management solution for efficiency improvements across the organization.
  • A long-standing user of the Kronos time and attendance solution, the hospital decided to extend its use of Kronos by adding absence management, employee scheduling, human resources, and payroll applications to fully automate critical processes. This is expected to help Murray-Calloway achieve its goal of quality care delivery in the most productive, cost-effective manner.
  • By migrating to the Kronos Cloud, Murray-Calloway will leverage Kronos’ expertise in configuration, maintenance, upgrades, and support of the workforce management solution, enabling its IT department to focus resources on other priorities.
  • For added innovation in how the hospital collects time-worked data from employees, Murray-Calloway also chose Kronos InTouch time clocks to provide employees more control over their time, enabling them to easily check accrual balances, request time off, and view schedules – all in real-time.
  • The Kronos suite was selected after an evaluation of competing solutions and was chosen because it offers the market’s most comprehensive healthcare workforce management solutions deployed in the cloud. The hospital decided that such a solution will significantly improve efficiency, make operations more cost effective, and free up employees and managers to focus even more on quality care objectives.
