New solution allows hospitals to keep
EDMONTON – A new Human Resources application from
Ormed Information Systems allows hospitals to manage sophisticated HR
functions in-house, 24/7, instead of relying on outsourced solutions
that separate them from their data, the company said.
Launched in March 2007, Ormed MIS Recruitment, Applicant Tracking, and
Labor Relations software complement its Staff Scheduling software and
Payroll system to help complex healthcare organizations with multiple
unions and collective agreements eliminate counter-productive businesses
practices that obstruct efficiency.
“Advances on the clinical side have not been sufficiently matched in
administration,” says Nalini Ostashower, product manager, Human
Resources Management. “What’s needed is superior human resources
practice that puts the right people and the right processes in place for
peak performance without undue wear and tear on anyone.”
According to the company, Ormed MIS Recruitment facilitates fully
integrated, position-driven recruitment and timely response to
recruitment needs. Postings and recruitment ads are created in seconds
by populating user-defined fields with pre-set job description, skills
and education requirements, location, and other position-specific
Position-driven custom forms with weighted, user-specified questions can
be equally useful in employment interviews, annual performance reviews,
exit interviews, and discipline interviews.
Recruitment costs are fully tracked to determine the most efficient and
cost-effective recruitment methods and provide total financial control
of the recruitment process.
ORMED MIS Applicant Tracking streamlines the selection process, with the
ability to auto-search resumes and other applicant record attachments
(.doc, .rtf) for key words that identify applicants who closely match
specified job requirements.
“In addition to saving the recruiter a lot of time, this technology
facilitates consistent interviewing and post-interview analysis of
candidates,” Ostashower said. “It reduces reliance on – and eliminates
the costs of – external consultants and agencies.
“And since all relevant information in the applicant record seamlessly
ports to the employee record, it eliminates data re-entry at the time of
hire while providing a complete profile of each employee.”
Ormed MIS Labor Relations supports user-defined, step-driven management
of individual and group grievance processes to ensure responsiveness and
The solution also assists healthcare organizations in meeting their
legal requirements. It facilitates the professional management of
disciplinary issues and securely stores communication logs to provide an
accurate audit trail of actions, correspondence, and communication.
Ormed MIS Human Resources software also tracks workplace injuries to
allow timely identification of trouble spots and trends in order to
quickly prompt actions that will reduce injuries and their costs to
employees, productivity, and the bottom line.
A new Ormed MIS Staff Budgeting module is scheduled for release later
this year, completing this phase of development in the ORMED MIS Human
Resources Management suite.
