Global Call Schedule is the most convenient, efficient, and effective way to share schedules and related information, all online.
The majority of healthcare providers currently share their call schedules by email. This process is inefficient, and often leads to confusion with the most up-to-date schedules, and who is actually “on call”. Global Call Schedule allows users to access the most up-to-date schedule, notifies users of changes, and is accessible from Apple devices, OR any computer with internet access. This saves people from the hassle of constantly checking a bulletin board for the latest call schedule, or being behind a hospital computer security firewall in order to access calendars. The developers of Global Call Schedule understand this: it's your schedule, you should be able to view it anywhere, any time.
To get started, simply identify and define a group of users (a “call schedule group”) who commonly need to share call schedules. Each call schedule group has its own web page, where they can upload/edit the latest schedules, decide who has access to see or edit the schedules, and communicate with other members.
Global Call Schedule is a free service, accessible to anyone. This includes any physicians, nurses, administrators, and other hospital staff who want to post a call schedule online.
Global Call Schedule supports Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and PDF files, up to 1.5 MB in size. This allows you to share your existing call schedule in the most commonly used and accepted formats; there’s no need to learn any special scheduling software, or to change the layout of your existing schedules. Just share the call schedule files in whatever formats you currently use.
