Presents its April Webinar

Hiring a Scheduling Coordinator in Private Duty Home Care

Thursday, April 11, 2013 - 4:00 pm eastern time


With Diane West and Stephen Tweed

One of the most important people on your home care team is the “Scheduling Coordinator.”  This is the match maker … the person who matches clients and caregivers to be sure there is the perfect fit. As Rick Morey, founder of Home Trak software says

“The most important characteristic of a highly effective scheduler is they must be ‘charming’, and you can’t teach ‘charming’".

So how do you recruit and select someone who is charming on the telephone, has the out going personality to schmooze the most difficult clients and the least interested caregivers and yet has the attention to detail to manage your scheduling system?  That’s the $64,000 question, and that’s what we’ll focus on in the web conference.

Stephen Tweed will give you the latest information from our research at Leading Home Care … a Tweed Jeffries company about what makes a successful scheduler. He’ll show you job benchmarks for the scheduler’s job, and give you copies of the job description.  Then he’ll discuss exactly how to recruit, select, train, and retain your new scheduling coordinator.

Objectives: As a result of this program, you will be able to…

1.  Define the job of the scheduling coordinator

2.  Describe the characteristics of a ‘Charming’ scheduler, and how to recognize them

3.  Discuss how to recruit and select your scheduler

4.  Explore the best ways to train and retain your scheduler
