We believe in the power of data. But after years of working in hospitals we’ve seen it make things harder for frontline teams when it should be making healthcare work better. That’s why we founded Qventus. Our mission is to simplify how healthcare operates, so that hospitals and caregivers can focus on delivering the best possible care to patients.

We believe that new technology has the power to transform how patient care is delivered and managed. We use artificial intelligence and machine learning to create products that help healthcare organizations and their people adapt in the moment and make the right decisions from the most complex data.

Since launching our first customer in 2014, we’ve been committed to improving operational efficiency. While some prefer to tackle moonshot projects, we believe that improving small day-to-day decisions can, over time, create massive improvements in healthcare.
