Comment on your 2010 productivity performance and any action you
took to improve that performance:
Orientation is running 1 FTE higher than budgeted due to vacancy and orientation to the new aquaphoresis technology.
This all happened in the 2nd quarter and 3C has not been able to balance that out. If that out of the ordinary orientation is
taken out 3C would be at 11.8 for the year.
PP 24 was seeing improvements. PP 25 43% of the time 3C was at a census of 14 or below. At that level for safe census
and coverage of telemetry monitors the unit cannot be within productivity levels and this negatively impacted the pp.
Describe your productivity action plan for 2011:
Will continue working with Director re: coaching on productivity. Meeting with Peg Bradke 12/16 for increased productivity
education. Education done with unit Secretary on importance of early morning payroll input for monitoring with OneStaff.
Work with staff 1:1 with end of shift outliers & early punch ins. Use adaptive design observations for end of shift
monitoring. Encourage alternatives to 1:1 if an option

Ramping it up in 2010
Creating a Culture Change—
Moving toward Prospective Productivity
Reporting
Using our IHS affiliation to look for Best
Practices—and borrowing shamelessly…
• Use OneStaff to create a Productivity
Report for every shift.
• Generate a weekly Productivity Report
every Monday to give Managers an idea
of how they are doing midway through
the payperiod.
• Provide coaching to those who need it.
What is OneStaff?
• It’s owned and operating at every IHS affiliate
hospital
• Employee Database
• Scheduling
• Daily Staffing
• Reporting
• Productivity
At the Core--The Interfaces
Kronos
Care
Cast
Infinium
OneStaff---how it works…..
• The Department’s budgets and schedules are
entered into Onestaff.
• OneStaff interfaces with CareCast to bring in
the census.
• Based on the census and the staffing data
that comes from the unit’s schedule,
OneStaff can predict if staffing will be within
budget on a given shift.
• Interfaces with Kronos to bring in the actual
hours worked.
Set up For Productivity Reports
Elements required:
– Budgeted FTE’s
– Orientation FTE’s
– Nonproductive Factor
– Account for Other Nonproductive hours
– Budgeted Units of Service
Diagnosing the Problems—
the 5C Story
• Off to a bad start—87%
productivity in week
one.
• Coaching
• Using OneStaff to
diagnose staffing issues
• Creating a correction

Accounting for all their activity….
•
•
•
•
Pulmonary Function Lab—52hrs/wk
Crit Care and NICU Competencies
Unit’s Education, i.e. STEPPS
ICU and NICU Multidisciplinary Rounds—24
hours/ week
• These activities had to be built into the 2011
budget—3.6 FTE’s
Future Goals
• More departments will monitor productivity
in OneStaff
• Implement Web Reporting in 2011
• EPIC interfaces will bring in workload data for
both nursing and ancillaries.
• Affiliates will continue to cooperate,
standardize Units of Service, and potentially
benchmark against each other
Key Themes – For Departments
• Monitor staffing real time and calculate HPPD or Worked Hours per
Unit of Service on a daily basis. Develop action plan for flexing staff
concurrently if volumes rapidly decline.
• The schedule should match the budget
• Differentiate your schedule from your day to day staffing
• Engage staff in the discussion of productivity targets
• Address general overtime utilization and end of shift overtime
• Revise Orientation/Learning methods
• Look for ways to utilize cross training
• Assure schedule options in Kronos are appropriate for the clock in
and clock out times.
• Share best practices and compare interventions across departments
Key Themes – For Organizations
• Strengthen the Core Team / Administrative Focus
• Ongoing Use of In-Quality Staffing Report-Outs
• Increasing Use of One Staff as a Productivity
Management Tool
• Productivity Coaches
• Frequent Reporting
– One Staff Daily, Weekly and Bi-Weekly Productivity Reports
– Bi-Weekly Productivity Report Produced by Finance
– Inpatient Nursing Unit Trend Report, also now Produced by
Finance
– Monthly CMI-Adjusted FTEs per AOB
• Top-Down FTE Budgeting / Tie to Daily Staffing
Next Steps for Productivity
Management at St. Luke’s Hospital
• Continued use of the In-Quality Staffing approach and of
productivity coaches
• More fully deployed use of master staffing plans and grids
for all unit-of-service-driven departments
• Broader use of One Staff within St. Luke’s and, with Iowa
Health System support, expanded capabilities of the One
Staff system
– Web Reporting
– Epic Interface
• Productivity benchmarking in select departments,
preferably starting within the Iowa Health System,
facilitated by standard unit of service definitions (Finance
Departments) and expectations for dialogue at the affinity
group level (Chief Operating Officers)
