AI-powered physician shift scheduling leader is undefeated in the second year of this new KLAS category
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – January 30, 2018 – KLAS today named Lightning Bolt Solutions, the leading provider of optimized physician shift scheduling, the 2018 Category Leader for Scheduling: Physician, marking the second consecutive No. 1 ranking for Lightning Bolt. With a total KLAS score of 95.5 out of 100, Lightning Bolt outperformed all competitors in the segment.
The annual Best in KLAS report is based on impartial ratings and feedback from healthcare clients, helping health operations leaders make informed technology purchase decisions and driving vendor software and service improvements. Here are just a few samples of what clients said:
- “Lightning Bolt Scheduling is probably one of the best pieces of software I have ever used. It figures out the schedule for us; we don’t have to do anything. We just put in our rules and that is it. The system is easy to navigate, and it is very easy to make changes to the schedule with the website. Lightning Bolt has done a lot of work on the system over the past few years.” (Physician, Dec. 2017)
- “Lightning Bolt Scheduling has worked well for us so far, and I don’t see any reason to change. When we initially made the decision to purchase Lightning Bolt Scheduling, we compared it with other software. This was our determined choice of software. It has sophisticated logic and rule-building functionality. We utilize those functions to determine the needs of our schedule.” (Analyst/Coordinator, Dec. 2017)
- “I like Lightning Bolt Scheduling so much that I recommended it to another department, which recently switched to the system. The people in that department are much happier with the Lightning Bolt scheduling software; they love it. The implementation went very well and moved quickly.” (Manager, March 2017)
KLAS, the global research leader in health technology, created the Scheduling: Physician category in 2017 for hospitals and health systems to increase transparency in the growing market. Continuing to deliver insight on healthcare clients’ experience with physician scheduling solutions, the “2018 Best in KLAS: Software & Services” report provides invaluable data for health operations leaders looking to optimize their most valuable resources to increase patient access without putting physicians at risk for burnout.
“The physician burnout crisis is costing healthcare organizations billions of dollars every year,” said Suvas Vajracharya, Ph.D., founder and CEO of Lightning Bolt Solutions. “Yet the real cost seems to be physicians’ lives and well-being and the impact of their suffering on patient care. As healthcare organizations continue battling the systemic causes of burnout, we hope that KLAS’ ongoing recognition of Lightning Bolt continues to reveal the impact true AI can have in creating more balanced clinical workforces for hospitals and medical groups.”
