Supported & Sustainable: Staffing meets Safety

Supported workers are the foundation of patient safety and organisational sustainability in healthcare.

The WHO recognises that “health systems can only function with health workers; improving health service coverage and realising the right to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is dependent on their availability, accessibility, acceptability and quality.”


A Supported Workforce Supports a Safer Patient Journey

Are you providing the right tools to your workforce to ensure a safer patient journey?

“A focus on managing each incident appropriately from a clinical perspective and ensuring the provision of safe, high-quality care to the patient following the incident, including open disclosure, if appropriate.”

 Action 1.11, NSQHS Standards, ACSQHC

  • Provide an organisational view of your workforce to highlight staff shortages or overages based on current patient demand, bringing workforce and patient acuity together.
  • Ensure all staff have access to the right policies and procedures, at the right time to mitigate the risk of adverse events.
  • Reduce the administrative burden on your healthcare workers to support their availability for patient care.

St Vincent’s Health Australia & RLDatix embarked on a project to support to consolidate and standardise their incident & risk management solution.  The project has brought together St Vincent's 23,000 staff members, supporting organisational sustainability, and giving a voice to staff to increase safety across the patient journey.

A Safer Workforce and Safer Patients builds a Sustainable Organisation

The great resignation, or the great exhaustion?

“International studies show that burnout is dangerous for doctors and can be fatal for patients. A systematic review found doctors with burnout were twice as likely to provide unsafe care, and a study of almost 8,000 surgeons suggested burnout doubled the odds of major medical errors.”

 The Grattan Institute

  • Reduce the reoccurrence of incidents by providing your healthcare workers with integrated and accessible solutions to report incidents and risks easily across your organisation.
  • Ensure your healthcare workers have access to your organisations proactive policies that support their wellbeing and the reduction of incidents, caused by burnout.
  • Support equitable rostering with consistent award interpretations, visibility of rostering, increased payroll accuracy, and accessible leave requests through mobile and desktop solutions.

“[Optima] removes all manual work and duplication. Now we have consistent and automated interpretation of awards and improved visibility of rosters and rules. Our leave and shift requests are now streamlined and, because we’re hosted in the Allocate Cloud, our staff have mobile and remote access to rosters and requests. It’s brilliant.” Amy Everard, Payroll and Rostering Systems Manager, Ballarat Health Service

A Safer, Sustainable Organisation

Building a strong foundation for your workforce and patients.

“It is abundantly clear that the healthcare ecosystem cannot ask clinicians and staff to work harder, but must instead provide them with more tools and an environment built on a strong foundation of wellness and on instilling and rewarding a culture of safety."

The New England Journal of Medicine

  • Optimise your workforce based on their availability, giving you greater control of your workforce budget by matching patient demand and acuity with the right workforce which in turn supports quality care
