Main Features and Benefits
What is Chyma®?
Chyma® is a unique suite of online applications designed specifically with healthcare professionals in mind. The system, designed by a physician, helps promote, facilitate and expedite shift schedule creation and management, communication, collaboration, and education and claims to save administrators time and money.
Why was Chyma® created?
Chyma® was designed to respond to the unique scheduling needs of physicians. Doctors often work between multiple hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and other practice locations. They are often on many call schedules and this complexity is managed more efficiently through an online digital system.
When medical facilities create a schedule, the scheduling office is bombarded with phone calls and emails requesting changes. As a result, they are required to spend countless hours finding replacements, modifying the schedule, and informing others of the changes.
Chyma® is a centralized way to create a schedule, disseminate it, and have the physicians swap shifts in real-time. Physicians indicate that Chyma® provides them with more flexibility in their scheduling and greater degrees of administrative flexibility.
Due to the virtual nature of the Chyma system, users can access the system to check their schedule, participate in a discussion or forum, or send a message from any Internet-ready computer in the world.
At its core, Chyma® aims to dramatically reduce the time needed and headaches generated when creating schedules, not to mention the time spent managing ever-changing schedules and distributing the ceaseless flow of changes.
Chyma® enables the development of powerful, secure, interactive online communities and personal information to exist together in one easy-to-use system. Chyma® combines events, discussions, documents, contacts, messaging and physician scheduling all in one place.
Chyma® has proven especially invaluable for managers who create shift schedules for multiple hospitals, and who normally move around physicians to fill shift gaps when they occur. It also saves clinics or hospitals money, time and resources by accurately calculating and recording accurate physician on-call reports.
The Chyma System is highly reliable and web-based. It works wherever a healthcare professional can access the Internet, 24/7. No need for special hardware or software. No issues surrounding compatibility.
Features and Functionality
The Chyma OnTime! schedule builder module helps the schedule manager create shift schedules, or multiple layers of physician scheduling (Emergency room physicians, General Practitioners, and Specialists) through a few easy to navigate procedures. Post schedule completion, physicians can begin trading shifts without the need to phone the scheduler or another physician.
The application also permits pertinent players (i.e.: clinic managers, clinic owners, Department Chiefs, Directors of Emergency Medicine, Department Clerks/Administrative Assistants, etc.) to view the call schedule, in real-time.
As a means of ensuring accountability, Chyma® provides a complete audit trail of each shift’s transactions. Accountability is important for medical facilities that wish to examine balance in scheduling among physicians, and for ensuring responsibility for shifts.
