Health Care Agencies
Facilities and Agencies
BookJane’s industry-leading technology makes filling shifts easy and can increase facility shift fulfillment rates by 90% or more. Instantly communicate with your workforce and enable them to sign-up for the shifts they want — with the click of a button.

Health Care Staff
Health care workforce engagement and retention is more important than ever, and BookJane put employees in control of their scheduling. Employees gain greater autonomy and control over the schedules that work for their lives, which creates higher coverage and drives better employee engagement and retention. BookJane also allows instant, two-way communication between facilities and internal and external staff — critical for awareness, understanding, and mobilization during emergency and pandemic times.
Driving Client Success In Challenging Times
Over 700 care facilities across North America and 20,000+ health care workers have already signed on to use BookJane’s platform and we continue to grow.
For nearly 25 years, Amica Senior Lifestyles has enriched the lives of Canadian seniors and their loved ones with its customized approach to meeting residents’ unique and evolving needs. Canadian-owned and operated, Amica residences can be found in neighbourhoods throughout British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario.
As the COVID-19 pandemic emerged, Amica Senior Lifestyles’ human resources and operations teams used BookJane’s platform to instantly get open shifts out to its facility staff so they could mobilize quickly.
The platform was also used to rapidly hire non-care workers and deploy them to its facilities to help with dressing, meal delivery and other non-health care tasks, freeing up time for nurses and personal care workers.
Amica Senior Lifestyles was able to coordinate corporate and facility-level messaging quickly and effectively with BookJane’s communication feature.
As a result of using BookJane, Amica Senior Lifestyles saw 40 percent more shifts taken and realized an 82 percent shift fulfillment rate. Importantly, facilities were able to swiftly communicate important updates to their staff, as they hadn’t been able to before, making staff feel informed throughout the pandemic as facility needs and dynamics changed quickly.
During the pandemic, BookJane was selected as a technology solution for the Ontario Medical Association (OMA), with the mandate of directly managing what could be a potential shortage of physicians in hospitals and other healthcare facilities across Ontario. The platform allows any hospital or healthcare facility in the Province to immediately broadcast a service request to physicians across Ontario, based on proximity and availability. Physicians can then register directly through the BookJane platform and within minutes can see where there is a need for their services. Since launching, 3,000 physicians have registered on the platform and the OMA remains at the ready to face ongoing waves of the pandemic.
This crisis demands creative solutions, speed of delivery and a partner who understands your challenges and can partner with you every step of the way. BookJane can help you plan today to be prepared for tomorrow.
