Automation finds timecard exceptions, notifies managers and escalates issues. It extracts incomplete timecards from Kronos and uses business rules to identify exceptions. Depending on the reason and circumstances, it signs-off on unapproved timecard or alerts appropriate manager for their action, either in batches or one-by-one. If a manager has multiple employees with issues, the messages are consolidated into a single alert. Over set time periods and until issue resolution, the solution escalates three times (i.e., manager, manager’s manager, etc.).
The solution gathers the draft bonus plans that have been created for each employee. Next, it identifies the right approver for each plan and requests that they perform the required review. First-line and next-level managers work together until they align on a final plan that conforms to policy. After an employee’s plan is approved, the automation loads the plan into the defined bonus letter template, creates a PDF file with password protection and delivers the PDF file to first-line managers for secure distribution.
Automation retrieves payroll and timesheet information from ADP and health information systems for each of its staff. It applies business rules based upon worker’s location, schedule, discipline, and assigned patients to calculate the necessary direct and indirect cost center allocations and then loads the results into the financial systems for reporting. A secondary impact, the improved reporting accuracy increased care team utilization.
Automation digitized distribution, collection, and review of timesheets, and eliminated redundant manual data entry. Timesheets are generated from planned provider schedules and also on-demand for unscheduled services. Medical team members receive and fill out their timesheet and are sent reminders to complete them as needed. CPT coding is applied and checked based upon services provided. Finished timesheets are reviewed by Billing before getting uploaded into NetSmart.
Read how a large US Destination Resort Company was able to; push cutoff date, giving more time to the resorts, reduce employee setup errors since they were caught before payroll period began, dramatically reduce manual payroll entry, and enabled overtime reporting for employees working for multiple managers across multiple departments (e.g., restaurant and store)
