Who are we?
Health-e Workforce Solutions delivers consultancy and unique software products to support health services in addressing their individual human resource management needs. Health-e Workforce Solutions offers a suite of targeted software applications that are designed to facilitate the analysis and management of hospital workforces.
At a practical level, Health-e Workforce Solutions puts the tools in the hands of managers to meet the day to day demands of healthcare workforce management. Our services are grouped into the following two offerings.
Software enabling proactive management practices by promoting advance requests, resulting in advance booking of shifts, reduce the reliance on high cost staff. Last minute emergency staffing shortfalls are then processed with confidence. The Smart Allocations software conveys information in real time on every facet of data available.
Incredibly smart software provides the ability to build virtual organisations of the future populated with real staff. Multiple workforce scenarios are generated using varying methodologies. Outputs are generated live and in seconds; with a high level of clarity providing significant accountability and transparency (your finance department will be amazed).
a word from the ceo
"One of the greatest challenges to a healthcare service in achieving its mission is the effective management of the professional workforce. Issues of workforce shortage, widely varying skill levels, shift work, staff retention and the mix of fulltime, part-time and casual workers compound the management challenge for a cohort that represents the biggest single cost of doing business. Failure to meet the challenge has impacts on financial performance, quality of service delivery and the overall reputation of the healthcare Service.
Health-e Workforce Solutions (HWS) is a proud Australian company that develops targeted software to facilitate the analysis and management of the entire healthcare workforce. HWS is rapidly expanding locally and internationally, through the development of its innovative technology and consultancy solutions. The software modules will drive workforce reform and optimisation by enabling workforce modelling, planning and benchmarking. HWS currently serves 50 hospital clients with a unique and proven offering that is unparalleled worldwide."

Software enabling proactive management practices by promoting advance requests, resulting in advance booking of shifts, reduce the reliance on high cost staff. The last minute emergency staffing shortfalls are then processed with confidence. The Smart Allocations software conveys information in real time on every facet of data available.
Staff log into the system & log their own availabilities through a web based app, whenever they want!
Managers log all their department's requests, with a reason why, e.g. Sick Leave, Specialling.
Allocators instantly see all requests for staff & can easily match available staff with them.
Simply report on all data collected within the system. No manual manipulation required. Let us help you tell the story.
In the first 12 months
The innovative Predictive Modeller enables clients to build virtual organisations of the future populated with real staff from today.
The following two methods can then be involved in predictive modelling:
- The first method of Service Modelling, involves manipulation of demand and/or supply drivers.
- The second method of Operational Modelling, involves an in depth interview process that captures rostering practices.
This enables clients to model a myriad of workforce scenarios in search of the most cost efficient model of care/staffing. Any number of virtual organisations can be built and costed for comparison and decision support purposes.
First we build a virtual workforce using your organisation's payroll & staff data. To the HWS team this analysis is critical, we must understand your organisation & at the same time give your team confidence in our unique methodologies.
Once we have a complete understanding of your data, we use current profiles to generate comprehensive modelling exercises. Using your direction & our experience to create new future profiles, detailed to generate salary & wage budgets.
The HWS business team present findings in a range of practical formats. Live workshops, summary presentations & comprehensive reports form part of client tailored services. HWS efficiency recommendations are designed for the real world.

Ballarat Health Services
"As an executive to have the capability to build a virtual organisation made up of various EFT profiles for each department and experiment by inputting various workforce scenarios has been invaluable. To identify staff vacancies in advance and facilitate forward filling of vacancies resulting in reduced salary expenditure has the potential to save millions. There is no such alternative available in today's health system."
"Our global experience suggests that no other tool will drive workforce optimisation in the way Health-e Workforce Solutions analytical tool is able to do."
