Build Locally. Share Globally.


Lightning Bolt’s provider scheduling solution for the Enterprise centralizes web-based schedules across departments and specialty groups while providing autonomy for each group to build and maintain schedules based on the group-specific rules and policies. With success in deployments at the largest IDNs and University Health Systems with thousands of providers scheduled, Lightning Bolt is the credible choice in scheduling solution that scales in pricing and performance for the Enterprise. 

While alternative products available on the market only provide an electronic medium for viewing/entering scheduling data, Lightning Bolt produces the best schedule possible by thinking deeply, often millions of steps ahead, to meet both institutional and individual needs.

Lightning Bolt combines access to schedules with means to communicate with providers on the schedule.

Lightning Bolt’s provider scheduling system for the Enterprise offers a way to access centralized, web-based schedules across departments and specialty groups while at the same time providing autonomy for each group or department to build and maintain schedules based on the group-specific rules.
To avoid overwhelming users on all scheduling data that is now centralized, the Lightning Bolt system allows you to define personas or roles such as IT Staff, providers on the schedule, departmental schedulers, departmental medical director, external users, and switchboard operators. Once the roles are defined, LB controls both the scope of access (selected departments, providers, shifts, etc.), and the extent of access (no access, view access, or view/modify access). Access to scheduling data can be controlled at the granularity of specific assignments and specific providers on the schedule.
