What is a call schedule group?

A group of individuals who share a call schedule have been defined as a call schedule group. For example, all partners in a cardiology practice who share any type of call coverage would be considered a call schedule group. If the partners would like to share the call schedule with their office assistants, they could also be identified as members of the call schedule group by whoever initially sets up the call schedule group.

How is globalcallschedule.com simpler than what you are doing already?

The majority of healthcare providers currently share their call schedules by email.

This saves people from the hassle of constantly checking a bulletin board for the latest call schedule or being behind a hospital firewall in order to access when they are on call. It's your schedule, you should be able to see it from anywhere at any time.
