Strengthening Our CORE

YNHHS develops better, less-costly solution for Kronos missed swipes

Have you ever missed a Kronos time clock swipe on your way into or out of work? 

If so, you probably received an email from [email protected] notifying you of the missed swipe. Now, you’ll receive an email from [email protected]

That might not seem like a big change, but there’s more to it than a different email address.  

A team from Digital Technology Solutions, Corporate HRIS, Payroll and Corporate Finance recently collaborated to create an in-house version of an outside program called Cognitive Health, which automatically notified employees and managers of missed swipes or unapproved timecards. By replacing Cognitive Health with the in-house solution, YNHHS will save nearly $50,000 a year.

This article is part of a series that looks at how teams across Yale New Haven Health are working to reposition the health system for the future by focusing on strategic priorities through a systemwide initiative called Strengthening Our CORE (Collaboration, Optimization, Resiliency, Efficiency). Multiple workstreams have been designed to improve operational efficiencies; foster innovation; and improve quality and safety for patients and employees.
