rn.d.s. (Nurse. Doctor. Satisfaction.) started with a simple idea: Improve Caregiver and Patient coordinated care using simple technology. That’s exactly what we’re doing with our platform.
Listening to customers and patients, developing a software platform that is simple, easy to use, efficient and improves the quality of care while reducing errors is how we operate. From the initial idea to delivery of our product, we focus on patients and caregivers every step along the healthcare paradigm.
While the idea is simple, the process isn’t easy. Hospitals are busy, demanding environments built on a conglomerate of systems. Federal regulations mandate new systems that require updating workflows. Through our continuous evolving process we’ve learned a thing or two about what works and what doesn’t. When caregivers work better, and patients are engaged in their healthcare, we all benefit.
Our innovative and passionate people are creating coordinated healthcare communication to simplify, empower and fill the gap between technology and care.
We’re fortunate to have a Leadership Team of talented professionals who have been there and done it before, with the right combination of experience to steer us through our fast-paced growth. Get to know the people who cultivate our innovative spirit.
