symplr Recognizes Nursing Excellence with Launch of Workforce Management “DAISY” Mobile Feature

Hackathon drives innovation in a series of initiatives to celebrate nurses beyond National Nurses Week   

HOUSTON – May 7, 2024symplr®, a leading provider of enterprise healthcare operations software that has been supporting the nursing profession through technology innovations for 30+ years, is launching a new symplr Workforce mobile app feature to enable healthcare professionals to easily nominate nurses for a DAISY Award, an international program honoring extraordinary nursing care. Colleagues can recognize a nurse’s impact in any type of role, from a student to a manager to an entire care team using their symplr Workforce mobile app leveraging the symplr Innovation Hackathon season four overall winner.  

"Nurses are the heart and soul of healthcare, and we’re committed to simplifying healthcare operations so nurses can focus on patients instead of administrative tasks," said BJ Schaknowski, CEO of symplr. "It's a privilege to offer a solution that champions nursing excellence and to see our engineering team delivering innovation that makes it easier for caregivers to have more time to give care.”  

Beyond Nurses Week, symplr will continue to honor extraordinary nurses through its Moments that Matter video series, co-produced with the DAISY Foundation to highlight remarkable stories of DAISY honorees submitted by patients, families, and peers across the globe. The company is now accepting nominations for the next series to recognize the enormous impact nurses have on outcomes.   

"Nursing has changed dramatically since we founded the DAISY Foundation 25 years ago,” said Bonnie Barnes, FAAN, Co-Founder and President of the DAISY Foundation. "DAISY honorees are recognized for their commitment to compassionate and expert patient care, and partners like symplr help foster that by giving nurses time back to create those moments that matter that are so meaningful to patients and families."  

symplr Workforce is a cloud-based integrated solution that creates efficiencies to give time back to patients, streamlining timekeeping, attendance, and scheduling, reducing up to 50% of time spent managing timecards and schedules.  

symplr continues to invest in technology and innovation as a core competency in driving the success of customers’ solutions and their healthcare workers. This latest innovation resulted from the symplr annual hackathon, which involved 24 teams, two days of innovation, four themes and invaluable collaboration and learning. Additional innovations include symplrAI to further simplify healthcare operations.
