An Insider's view of PatientIQ

What are some social events your company does?

With work from home policies in place, it has become a bit more challenging to do social events. To overcome this, we have a company happy hour video chat every Friday afternoon where we can let loose and have fun as a team to wrap up the week. It is a great way to stay in touch with coworkers while everyone is safe at home!


Marketing Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

Creating the reporting/analytics module was one of my favorite projects in the company. It involved multiple technologies, different platforms, and even different programming languages, on top of cutting edge tech technologies.


Director of Quality Assurance

What is your vision for the company?

Healthcare providers deserve the best technology to support them on their mission to improve patients outcomes. PatientIQ brings data-driven medicine to the bedside by empowering care providers with prediction, advanced analytics, and a platform for collaboration to move medicine forward.
