KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Feb. 5, 2019 ­— PerfectServe, a leading provider of cloud-based clinical communication and collaboration (CC&C) solutions, today announced the acquisitions of Lightning Bolt Solutions, an AI-optimized physician shift scheduling technology for hospitals and health systems, and CareWire, a mobile patient engagement platform. These standout solutions are critical components of PerfectServe’s effort to deliver the industry’s first true care team collaboration platform – one that overcomes the persistent care coordination challenges that exist across a patient’s healthcare ecosystem.

“The advantages of coupling Lightning Bolt’s best-in-class physician scheduling solution with PerfectServe’s care team collaboration platform are obvious,” said Jeri Hamilton, Director of Physician Services, Anesthesia Partners of Dallas (Texas). “Lightning Bolt helped us to distribute physician workload equally while meeting our goals for care access. Enhancing this solution with PerfectServe’s communication efficiency and patient engagement capabilities is a big win for providers and patients alike.”

The news follows PerfectServe’s recent acquisition of Telmediq, the top-rated KLAS vendor for secure communication platforms in 2018 and 2019, to bring together the most comprehensive set of CC&C capabilities on the market. The addition of Lightning Bolt and CareWire builds upon the company’s strategy to unify the entire care team across the continuum, from inpatient, to outpatient, to patients at home.

“PerfectServe’s commitment to interoperability, outcomes and collaboration across the patient’s entire healthcare ecosystem is inspiring,” said Suvas Vajracharya, Ph.D., founder and CEO of Lightning Bolt Solutions. “Empowering the PerfectServe and Telmediq solutions with our 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.”

SuvasVajracharya, Ph.D. will join the PerfectServe leadership team and continue to lead the Lightning Bolt business. Learn more about how PerfectServe is building the care team collaboration platform of the future by visiting the PerfectServe site to read the full press release.
