“Lightning Bolt has been a huge help to the Department in managing faculty leave and clinic scheduling management. In addition, we were able to computerize the resident block assignments and tie it in with the attending’s schedule. We transitioned from an old and slow custom-built program, and the difference is night and day.”

“The difference we saw with Lightning Bolt was that it could look at the providers’ preferences. It could take them into consideration more so than the other programs we looked at. We chose Lightning Bolt based upon recommendations from many others who use [it]. Today, Lightning Bolt helps us create very complex schedules without spending as many manual hours editing them.”
