Optimized Provider Scheduling

Improve work-life balance and increase patient access

Considers thousands of scheduling variables to create the best possible schedule – every time.

Utilize AI Combinatorial Optimization

Most physician scheduling software relies on basic schedule automation that only chooses the first available option. Unfortunately, this leads to incomplete schedules that require manual work to fill unnecessary gaps.

Thanks to combinatorial complexity, an infinite number of possible physician shift schedules can be generated. Embracing the true complexity of provider scheduling, Lightning Bolt utilizes AI combinatorial optimization to consider every possible outcome.
