Our Story

Journey to Market Leader

Founded in 2002, Lightning Bolt has developed deep domain expertise in the areas of physician workflow, hospital operations, artificial intelligence, and professional balance. Managing more than three million physician hours each month, Lightning Bolt is the trusted solution for hospitals and health systems and works to align the interests of their physicians and facilities to promote work-life balance, productivity, and patient access.

Joining PerfectServe

In early 2019, Lightning Bolt was acquired by PerfectServe, a leading player in the clinical communication and collaboration space. This was a natural next step for Lightning Bolt and an ideal fit for both companies, as scheduling and communication go hand-in-hand when it comes to facilitating real-time patient care and complex clinical workflows. You can read the full press release here, but this note from the announcement is an apt summation of the partnership’s benefits:

“Empowering [PerfectServe’s] solutions with [Lightning Bolt’s] AI-driven physician workforce management capabilities will reduce the administrative burden of scheduling, further optimize communication workflows, and increase the timeliness of patient care by improving access.”

Our Commitment

Like any business, Lightning Bolt has grown and evolved over the years. However, one thing that hasn’t changed is our core mission: working with our healthcare organization partners to improve provider wellness and satisfaction, reduce time used to create schedules, and improve patient access with advanced technology that auto-generates complete, accurate, equitable, and optimized schedules every time.

Meaningful change matters. Be a part of it.
