Indeed! I can understand the difficult of logistic in running a hospital. Efficiency is crucial to low the medical cost. However, I would not feel good if my time in the office was tracked every seconds. What worst is if the tracked person is required to explain every action. Does the tracking system, after all, improve the efficiency?
Agree, ridicolous idea...why don't they track the money instead? billing in US hospitals differs by 10x depending on the procedure and place where it is done...or track million dollar compensation for hospital executives...or maybe track their time instead! Kris
What's the matter with these idiots? Is there no limit to the extent of intrusion they're willing to impose on others? Now regular employees are going to be made to wear "ankle bracelets," in essence, and somehow everyone's okay with this?
Why do things have to get out of hand before people get p*ssed off enough to clamp down on such nonsense?
Max, improving the efficiency of management is simply not the American Business way. The American Business way is described quite well in the old story of the Japanese versus American Business boat race, which I think hails from the 1980s. Here's a link to a version of the story.
The short version is that Japan won the race because they had eight employees rowing and one manager steering. The USA race had one employee rowing and eight managers steering in different directions. When the USA team lost, all blame was placed on the one overworked rower. Sound familar to anyone?
What kind of idea is this? Do you mean to say that nurses are to be treated like animals are being tracked in jungle? If someone is willing to live like human then he or she need to treat others as well like human. Very bad idea, and the worst use of technology.
