Effective use of working time and the allocation of resources are important activities to enable competitive business performance. The main challenge in majority of Slovenian hospitals is to provide efficient, quick and equitable distribution of working time of the employees. Since the nurse roster is being created physically on paper the need for a special software for nurse rostering emerged. Commercial solutions for nurse rostering are not adjusted for Slovenian environment thus this research proposes an IT solution, developed for the University Medical Centre Ljubljana (UMCL) in Slovenia. Results of preliminary testing have shown that in the quality of nurse rostering was importantly improved. We have also shown the economic viability of the proposed solution.
