Health Data Systems, Inc. Joins OnShift Partner Program

Partnership Extends OnShift in Meeting the Needs of Fast-Growing Customer Base in Long-Term Care

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - Nov 19, 2012) -  OnShift, the leader in web-based staff scheduling and shift management software for the healthcare industry, today announced that Health Data Systems, Inc. (HDSI) has become an OnShift partner for referrals and implementations. The partnership brings together two leading companies with unparalleled experience in and commitment to the senior care market.

"HDSI is an experienced, highly respected company and our customers will really benefit from their expertise in long-term care technologies," stated Mark Woodka, CEO, OnShift. "OnShift is experiencing major growth and this partnership augments OnShift's sales and service organization by providing a greater ability to scale to meet the demands of our fast-growing customer base."

HDSI extends OnShift's channel and brings over 30 years of experience in the long-term care market, with a focus on technology adoption. In addition, HDSI specialists will work with providers to ensure successful implementation of OnShift staff scheduling software. With reimbursement cuts, economic volatility and uncertainties due to reform, providers are increasingly looking for ways to run more efficiently and control costs. OnShift's staff scheduling software minimizes overtime, fills employee call-offs in minutes, and balances staffing levels. This results in lower labor costs -- a provider's largest expense -- as well as higher satisfaction and better quality of care.

"HDSI is excited to work with OnShift in the long-term care market. This relationship allows us to leverage our experience, knowledge base, and resources while providing a core solution to clients. It is a working example of our corporate model, providing measurable value utilizing our commitment and service to the industry," said Mike Miller, CEO, HDSI.
