Montréal, Canada, September 29, 2022 – Logibec Inc. announced today that the largest territorial Regional Health Authority in Manitoba, Northern Health Region, has selected its cloud-based scheduling solution. Northern Health Region will deploy Logibec Scheduling across more than 20 healthcare facilities to over 2,200 employees to streamline healthcare workforce management. The organization aims to give employees greater visibility and better control over their individual schedules, while maximizing the use of employee time by automating many administrative workflows.  

Upgrading Quadrant Workforce with Logibec Scheduling to Enhance Collaboration

Logibec Scheduling will act as an upgrade to Quadrant Workforce, the payroll solution used by Northern Health Region for the past 15 years. By connecting people and data, the new cloud-based solution from Logibec will optimize staff management and support team collaboration.

“Collaboration is one of our fundamental values here at Northern Health Region, and we understand that nowadays, staying true to this value means investing in technology. Working with others efficiently, enhancing service delivery and maximizing resources; all these commitments will be easier to respect with Logibec Scheduling”, said Wanda Reader, VP Human Resources & Chief Human Resources Officer at the Northern Health Region.

Gaining Visibility, Autonomy and Time When Managing Schedules

The new system being adopted by Manitoba’s Northern Health Region will be accessible on all devices and provide a fully centralized staff schedule. It will also remove many existing manual processes, such as requesting schedule changes by phone calls or paper documents, streamlining these processes with online and/or automated alternatives.

“We designed the Logibec Scheduling interface to provide a real-time overview of workforce management, making it easier to see who is available and who is not,” said Franco Sicilia, Logibec’s Chief Commercial Officer. “A comprehensive feature set accelerates schedule creation, shift swaps and last-minute change, so healthcare organizations like Manitoba’s Northern Health Region can reduce costs and improve employee satisfaction.”
