Taking the waiting around out of rounds.

Our Story

Why are hospital rounds so unpredictable—and what would it take for them to change?

These two questions were the driving force behind our co-founders channeling their personal experiences and industry expertise into reimagining the rounding experience. Q-rounds is our compassion-fueled healthcare innovation taking the waiting around out of rounds by improving communication among patients, families, and care teams with a virtual queue that sends real-time notifications of when to arrive for rounds.
