You might be surprised to know how many times we get calls from Physicians and others that start out by saying, “I’m going to be taking over creating the on-call schedule for our providers, can you help me get started?” Our answer is always of course, we’re happy to help. I have heard this enough times that it now warrants its very own blog post. This is primarily directed toward physicians and schedulers who are creating just the on-call portion of the schedule for the doctors. In many practices, there is a physician that creates the “on-call” portion of the schedule, while someone does the office type assignments. Today’s post is more focused on the on-call side of the schedule.
