"Shift Admin scheduling has turned out to be a great decision for us. Creating lifestyle-friendly schedules that keep our 23 providers from feeling burned out is a challenge, but ShiftAdmin's ability to incorporate all of our individual requests and preferences makes creating good schedules easy. Switching shifts, planning vacation time and viewing schedules online is tremendously convenient. ShiftAdmin has taken some of the stress away from our jobs as emergency medicine providers."
