Frequently asked questions

  • What is Healthcare Rostering Software?

    Healthcare employee rostering software manages the schedules of hourly employees at medical facilities including hospitals, clinics, private practice, front office staff, lab technicians, and nurses. The scheduling software can help automate schedules, record vacations and sick leave, track overtime, and generate timesheets for compensation.

  • How simple is it to implement Deputy at my Clinic?

    Deputy is best known for its ease of set-up and ease of use — just check out our customer reviews. We’ve made it simple for healthcare clinics to get started with employee rostering software. It’s as easy as starting a free trial, setting up your locations, and inviting your staff.

  • How do I capture timesheets for my practice?

    Using Deputy's time tracking software, staff can either record their hours from a tablet device at a fixed point in your business or from their own phones. You can then verify and approve timesheets, ensure they’re correct, and seamlessly sync them with payroll software like Xero.

  • Why do Clinic owners love Deputy?

    According to our reviews, Deputy wins over clinics and medical practices because it’s extremely easy to set up and easy to use. It’s simple to onboard your staff, manage your team from one app, and free up more time for the things that matter.
