Anesthesia Scheduling Software

The Anesthesiology department is a complex and fast-paced environment that requires robust Anesthesia scheduling software. The department consists of specialized Physicians and CRNAs (as well as Fellows and Residents), frequently at a variety of facilities and locations, which requires an enhanced way to track credentials, incentive pay , as well as manage over time risk.  There are many things to consider when building the schedule for your physicians including call stacks, out order, staffing quotas, preference, call equality, and much more.

Features and Benefits

Automated Anesthesia Scheduling Software

OpenTempo is a rules-based platform that allows you to specify the rules and policies you follow for building your schedules. Clinical rules, human resources requirements, and union policies can all be encoded into the software, allowing it to automatically enforce your rules and policies with every schedule you build.

Mobile Access

OpenTempo’s mobile application gives you instant access to your schedule on your favorite smartphone or tablet. You will be able to view your schedules, make requests, and see who you’ll be working with, plus it will sync with your device calendar to keep your schedule up-to-date.

Rapid Request Processing

Large departments and practices with many Anesthesiologists and CRNAs need to process a high volume of requests. OpenTempo allows you to decide which requests can be approved automatically and which need to go through an approval process. All rules and policies are enforced when reviewing any request, meaning no violation of clinical availability or facility policy can occur, and request approvals are automatically updated in real-time.

Room and Case Staffing

OpenTempo provides floor plan and Gantt views of the OR, allowing easy drag-and-drop room and case staffing. You will be able to match providers to rooms and cases, by availability and specialty and prevent inappropriate case assignments to providers lacking the proper certification.

Integrate OpenTempo with any case management system such as Epic, Cerner, or MediTech in a bilateral connection for less administrative burden and increased productivity metrics.

Time and Attendance Tracking

OpenTempo lets you track time and attendance for your CRNAs so you can know, in real-time, exactly where your practice stands regarding overtime and under-time. You will also be able to calculate shift differentials and export your data directly into any payroll processing system. Also, OpenTempo can integrate with your existing time tracking system to reduce administrative burden and increase timekeeping accuracy.

Wage and Compensation Calculation

OpenTempo's wage engine manages all your pay rules, including complex payroll and incentive pay strategies. The Anesthesiology Department manages providers with different pay rules, for example Anesthetists require premium or incentive pay, whereas CRNAs are wage-based employees. This process is entirely automated in OpenTempo, thereby eliminating any manual effort or errors. 

Having access to this range of information allows your organization to forecast overtime and undertime before they happen, link directly to your payroll process, and provide transparency of earnings to your clinicians.

“OpenTempo has played an integral role in fully automating our payroll process.  It handles our sophisticated call point weighting and stress factors using both assignment and provider class which is then translated into wages.”
