Stop firefighting and bring a new level of control and understanding
to your healthcare workforce scheduling with Frontier.

Ming Tang, Chief Data & Analytics Officer at NHS England

“This is critical in helping us determine when to ramp up capacity”

•  Understand the drivers of change – by unpicking the ‘root cause’ of operational and contextual drivers of performance
