New mobile app helps JMOs to apply for overtime pay anytime, anywhere in the state

23 March 2021

eHealth NSW, in partnership with the NSW Ministry of Health, has developed a new mobile app that enables Junior Medical Officers (JMOs) to manage unrostered overtime, giving them more time to focus on patient care.

Integrated with NSW Health’s internal StaffLink UROC (unrostered overtime and on-call claims) application, the smartphone app (which is available on Apple Store and Google Play), provides a more flexible option for JMOs to create, submit and monitor the status of their overtime claims.

“The NSW Health UROC mobile app has been a great addition as a JMO. It allows me to put in my overtime, anyplace, at any time,” Dr Samuel Mathias, Junior Medical Officer, Central Coast Local Health District, said.

“The simple format has made the process easier and simpler. Its format also makes it clearer to see my pending claims and the process of them being accepted or rejected.”

With the new UROC mobile app, JMOs can also preset workplaces to simplify their inputs and find answers to frequently asked questions. Configured with the same, secure, single sign-on for ease of use, and loaded with an at-a-glance dashboard, it will make things significantly easier for JMOs.

The UROC mobile app supports the NSW Ministry of Health’s JMO Wellbeing and Support Plan by improving how NSW Health supports the health and wellbeing of its junior medical workforce. It was piloted in the Central Coast and Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health Districts.

Following its initial testing phases from December 2020 – January 2021, the UROC app is being rolled out statewide. JMOs can still access the full UROC desktop application via the NSW Health Stafflink.
