ARA is a leading provider of a diverse range of imaging services, and prides itself on investing in the latest technological techniques to ensure it continues to provide the highest quality of care to patients and referring physicians. Today ARA is widely recognized as one of the leading innovative providers of outpatient imaging services in Central Texas through its 15 outpatient clinics and in 17 area hospitals. ARA also participates in an alliance with Strategic Radiology, a consortium of radiology groups that has geographic coverage throughout the U.S. representing over 890 radiologists.
Healthroster was selected following a rigorous due diligence process in which all elements of the solution were thoroughly reviewed and tested. The Allocate team was able to demonstrate Healthroster's robust functionality, and ease of use, while demonstrating its track record of successful implementations and the subsequent delivery of financial savings.
Sandy Strickland, Chief Clinic Officer of ARA explained the reasons for choosing Allocate Software's Healthroster: "Balancing workforce via efficiency and fairness is of paramount importance to our future. Collaborating with Allocate will have a positive impact on our organization which will ensure that we are managing our costs, while enabling our teams to provide the very best clinical services."
Healthroster will be used by ARA to support improved workforce management of its 90 radiologists and 240 clinical staff, streamline business operations and help reduce operating costs while safeguarding the delivery of the highest quality care.

Healthroster has been designed specifically to ensure that workforces are operating to the highest level so that managers can be secure in the knowledge that the right staff is always available to meet service demand.
"Having worked with Boston University Radiology Associates for some years, I am confident that we bring a unique level of domain expertise and understanding of e-scheduling for this very specialized group. This knowledge and experience will provide an excellent foundation for the project and enable us to work with ARA to ensure they achieve their goals of a fully optimized workforce."
