Lightning Bolt is an easy-to-use scheduling tool capable of managing thousands of schedules across multiple departments and facilities. In addition to complete, accurate schedules and streamlined workflows, Lightning Bolt’s benefits include:
- Easy location of on-call providers to improve speed to care
- Detailed reporting and analytics to align resource supply and demand
- Accommodation of providers’ personal preferences for increased provider satisfaction
- Ability to scale—can meet the scheduling needs of a single department or an entire health system
- Real-time access to organization-wide schedules with a mobile app that offers the same functionality as the desktop version
- Centralized request calendar with instant time-off approval
- Online, real-time shift changes and schedule adjustments
“PerfectServe’s Lightning Bolt solution—which expertly manages upwards of three million shift hours each month—supports provider satisfaction and adds substantial value to the hospital’s bottom line through enhanced communication workflows, administrative time savings, efficient resource allocation, and improved staffing capabilities,” said PerfectServe CEO Guillaume Castel. “With its addition to the App Orchard, we’re making it easy for Epic customers to license advanced technology used by hundreds of healthcare organizations of all sizes to generate optimized, gap-free schedules.”
Building clinical schedules can be complex, and scheduling mistakes are a major source of dissatisfaction for providers. Lightning Bolt automatically considers thousands of variables to create the best possible schedule every time—without leaving gaps in coverage for administrators to fill. This leads to an 82% reduction in time spent managing schedules, an 86% reduction in time spent contacting on-call providers, and as much as $2.8 million in savings from reduced provider burnout that leads to improved retention.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has proven just how important it is for healthcare organizations to have a scheduling solution that can respond nimbly to changing conditions,” said PerfectServe Chief Product Officer Ben Moore. “As our Lightning Bolt solution launches in the App Orchard, we look forward to working closely with this development community to provide the kind of sophisticated, flexible, and user-friendly scheduling technology that accommodates the unique rules, facilities, and goals of Epic customers.”
