“Lightning Bolt is a revolution in physician scheduling. The process of scheduling “call” manually is an exceedingly tedious and often inaccurate task. After using Lightning Bolt, we have been able to rapidly and accurately generate schedules with just the click of a button!
By using a rule-based system for generating schedules, this program adeptly handled all of our complex requests with NO errors! These rules also can be very easily be modified to produce the best results. Once perfected, the rule-based system allows new schedules to be generated (and published to the web if you want) in just a few seconds.
By combining rapid schedule generation, easily modified rules, and web-published schedule, this program has vastly reduced the time to make our call schedule, and has provided an even the distribution of “noxious” call days (i.e. weekends and holidays). There is now less discontent within our call group, since all know that the schedule is fair and without bias. Having it visible to all on the web has also proved invaluable, since you always have a schedule at your fingertips. No more faxes and calls to the answering service to find out who is on call!
We highly recommend Lightning Bolt for those who want to have a fair and easily generated schedule! If you still like using a manual typewriter then this is not the software for you!”
