Automated scheduling

Take the heavy lifting out of rota planning.

Nursebuddy has a tonne of automated scheduling tools to lend a helping hand with creating complex visit rotas and prioritising continuity of care.

  • Full AutoPilot - with the help of AI, Nursebuddy automatically assigns visits based on details in your care records. Things like: availability, compliances, distances and preferred/no-go carers.

  • Preferred carers - kickstart a roster by assigning visits to a client’s preferred carer; if one’s been nominated, Nursebuddy will find it.

  • Past matching day - base a schedule on a similar day from past rotas, and Nursebuddy will match as many visits as it can.

  • Runs - group visits with similar characteristics together into a regular, recurring run. Then leave them to repeat.

  • Drag and drop - move visits easily with Nursebuddy’s assistance to select the best matching carer and the right time slot.

  • Templates - save a day or week of recurring visits as a template for future rotas. Find out more.

Testimonials

In their words

Discover why our customers love Nursebuddy.

Increased efficiency

"Nursebuddy has allowed our company to improve the efficiency of the service we provide. Being able to assign specific carers to clients as the ‘Preferred Carer’ helps immensely with scheduling our services."

Lynda McCann
Managing Director, Care for Me

User-friendly

"The format of the scheduling is fantastic as you can see the full screen and copy from another day. You can see the client’s names and even schedule for months in advance. Everything about it is user-friendly. It's simply superior in capacity in comparison to other solutions we’ve tried."

Lena Le Mesurier
Registered Manager, Lapis Care

Life-changing

"Nursebuddy has certainly changed our lives - rotas can be done in minutes, can be edited and changed “live” to suit our client’s needs. We were using paper to do our rotas then texting them out to each team member - it was a daily nightmare and something we look back at with dread, as we made mistakes and it took forever."
