BURLINGAME, Calif.—Lightning Bolt Solutions, the leading provider of medical staff scheduling solutions, announces a new enterprise agreement with University of Kentucky HealthCare, the health care system offering Kentucky’s most advanced medical care.
Lightning Bolt implementation is set to occur across more than 50 services within the health network, optimizing complex scheduling needs for over 1,600 interns, residents, fellows, attending physicians, and advanced practice providers.
UK HealthCare is Kentucky’s largest multidisciplinary group practice, one of the fastest growing academic medical centers in the country, and one of only eight centers nationwide verified Level I for treatment of both pediatric and adult trauma.
Since the early 1990s, UK HealthCare has relied on a homegrown scheduling system, resulting in multiple scheduling processes across the enterprise with no integration points and, therefore, no enterprise-wide schedule serving as the health care system’s one source of truth. UK HealthCare evaluated the market to find an enterprise solution and ultimately selected Lightning Bolt.
Lightning Bolt’s web-based software scales in performance for the enterprise, centralizing department and specialty group schedules while allowing each to maintain autonomy in building and maintaining schedules based on individual needs and rules. A combination of patent-pending technology and artificial intelligence allows the system to optimally map resources across the enterprise. Other key features include cross-departmental scheduling and a role-based access control system that scales to thousands of end users.
“We are very excited and proud to announce an enterprise agreement with UK HealthCare as Lightning Bolt provides a unique solution for improving the scheduling workflow across the health care system,” said Suvas Vajracharya, CEO of Lightning Bolt Solutions. “Physicians are health care’s most valuable resource. With a health care system like UK HealthCare where that most valuable resource is being shared across the enterprise, it’s vital to establish synergy. Our system is built to accomplish that.”
The agreement with UK HealthCare marks an opportunity for Lightning Bolt to demonstrate the true breadth of its system’s enterprise solution through planned integrations with electronic medical record, single sign-on and secure messaging interfaces.
Vajracharya added: “With deep domain expertise in the area of physician scheduling and a team of experienced engineers and enterprise project consultants, we are dedicated to the success of UK HealthCare as it continues to provide advanced patient care to those in Kentucky and surrounding regions.”
