Lightning Bolt Solutions, the leading provider of automated physician shift scheduling, today announced the appointment of Gavin Yoder as vice president of sales. In this role, Yoder will lead the development and staffing of Lightning Bolt’s national sales team in four key areas: field and customer sales, sales strategy, sales training, and sales operations. He will also lead the organizational design of the national sales team, setting the vision, leading change, and serving as a mentor.
“Operations-focused health technology is booming. Healthcare organizations today are facing growing complexity in managing their physician resources, from physicians wanting more flexibility and work-life balance to meeting increased patient demand,” said Suvas Vajracharya, Ph.D., founder and CEO of Lightning Bolt Solutions. “Gavin’s breadth of experience building high-performing, growth-oriented teams combined with Lightning Bolt’s merit-based culture will help us expand our best in class sales organization.”
Prior to joining Lightning Bolt, Yoder served as vice president of sales for the occupational medicine and urgent care market segment at Net Health Systems. Here he inherited a brand new business unit and developed it into a national team, growing recurring revenues by 110 percent with $9.5 million in total revenue the first year. Yoder has also served as regional vice president of channel sales at AllscriptsMisys, the result of a merger between Allscripts and Misys Healthcare, where he grew annual revenue to over $12 million managing teams that covered 12 states.
In addition to roles building successful sales teams and processes, Yoder has also served as vice president of strategic partnerships for Apervita and Allscripts, developing new partner programs to build strong and sustainable partner ecosystems and achieving up to $7.8 million in annual revenue.
“I’ve spent my career as a student of healthcare technology, primarily focused on innovative workflow solutions,” said Yoder. “By bringing unmatched innovation to automated physician scheduling, Lightning Bolt is allowing healthcare organizations to dramatically improve their physician scheduling processes, increase care team effectiveness in top-of-license practices, and also fight back against top challenges in the industry today including physician burnout, positioning Lightning Bolt as a game-changer in the growing sector of hospital operations technology.”
