Foundation Health Partners Deploys in the Kronos Cloud

Foundation Health Partners, operator of the Greater Fairbanks Community Hospital, needed to swiftly implement a workforce management solution following its divestiture from Banner Health. Foundation Health turned to Kronos Incorporated to quickly deploy its Workforce Central suite of solutions in the Kronos (NewsAlert) Cloud, while maintaining workforce productivity during the transition phase.

News Facts

  • Along with all employees at the Greater Fairbanks Community Hospital, Kronos is also used by all employees across the other two facilities operated by the Foundation Health Partners – the Denali Center, a long-term care facility and the Tanana Valley Clinic.
  • Foundation Health Partners selected Kronos time and attendance, employee scheduling, and workforce analytics solutions, as well as the Kronos Attestation Tool Kit.
  • With schedules that take into consideration employee availability and preferences while aligning staff with the right skills and certifications for specific shifts, Kronos helps drive both employee and patient satisfaction.
  • The Kronos Attestation Tool Kit provides a simple way for managers, employees, and leadership to be engaged in the timecard review and documentation process. The solution allows users to review, approve, and reject timecards by using various Kronos data collection devices including time clocks, mobile and tablet applications, and web platforms. As employees can attest to changes in their own timecards and make revisions themselves before the timecard is approved, the solution further helps empower employees.
  • The analytics application is expected to help set important goals for all departments over time and improve overall staffing strategies.
  • Ultimately, the integrated Kronos solution helps deliver quality care while retaining productive, satisfied employees. Also by deploying in the Kronos Cloud, Foundation Health Partners allows Kronos to perform all configuration, maintenance, upgrades, and support of the workforce management solution, enabling its IT department to focus resources on patient services.
