Taking the waiting around out of rounds.

Our Story

Welcome to Q-rounds, where innovation meets compassion.

Born from personal frustration, our team is intimately familiar with the challenges families face when it comes to the unpredictability of hospital rounds. Leveraging our extensive experience in healthcare and technology development, we've set out to tackle this issue head-on. It's a question that resonates with all of us: If we can track the arrival of a restaurant table or a package, why shouldn't families have the same clarity regarding doctor's rounds? At Q-rounds, our passion is not just about asking this question, but about delivering solutions that enhance communication between families and the care team. We firmly believe that improved communication is the cornerstone of better healthcare outcomes and a more satisfying healthcare journey for everyone involved. With a reputation as pioneers in our respective fields, we've dedicated years to solving this challenge for the benefit of patients nationwide. Join us on this transformative journey as we continue to shape the future of healthcare, one patient at a time.
