RoundingWell exists at the intersection of medicine and technology because we believe technology has the potential to solve some of medicine's biggest challenges. It was founded in September 2011 by John Smithwick and Will Weaver. Picking up where EHRs stop, care teams use RoundingWell Programs to follow evidence-based protocols for the specific populations they manage.
John Smithwick co-founded RoundingWell in 2011 following four years at Nashville's Healthways, where he led the design effort for their web-based disease and lifestyle management product offerings. Prior to his work at Healthways, he worked in product management at Microsoft in Redmond, Wash. and in technology strategy consulting with Accenture in Boston, Mass. A graduate of the University of Richmond, he holds a master's of business administration from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business.
“We’re seeing a convergence of challenges in healthcare: the disruptive transition from fee-for-service to fee-for-outcomes; an upsurge in the prevalence of chronic diseases; unsustainable growth in overall healthcare spending; and the challenges that accompany an aging population. Actionable, clinically-effective, and cost-effective patient engagement is one essential element in the mix of capabilities that has to be brought to bear to address these challenges. We've addressed that need with RoundingWell...and then introduced a care coordination capability and suite of analytics tools that helps to maximize the impact of the data we are gathering (and sharing with) your patients. Taken as a whole, this allows clinician teams to improve patient outcomes while also meeting organizational objectives that matter more and more in an increasingly fee-for-outcomes industry."
Will oversees RoundingWell's technology strategy, design and development efforts. In 2001, he co-founded the email marketing company Emma and was responsible for building their award-winning SAAS-based platform. He also co-founded SmallBusiness.com in 1998 and served as Director of Product Development for three years. He is a graduate of Sewanee: The University of the South.
“We know that cloud-based technologies enable cost-effective solutions. The scale and reach of these solutions have never been available in the healthcare market. We built RoundingWell so that providers can thrive in the face of a fee-for-outcomes healthcare industry. So that providers who want more for their patients can meet those objectives, especially at a time when patients want more from their providers."
