About VSee Team
We’re more than a telemedicine platform. We’re people who believe in the power of telemedicine to save money, save lives, and improve healthcare. Our mission is to make telehealth an everyday experience, and we’re committed to helping our partners succeed at this. VSee serves over 2000 clients including GE, Shell, Trinity, DaVita, McKesson, Optum and NASA Space Station.
In the Beginning…
VSee was founded in 2008 by two Stanford PhD students, Dr. Milton Chen and Dr. Erika Chuang. They wanted to change how we worked by making remote work simple. Dr. Chen did his PhD research on the psychology of video communications, and also coded the original VSee video application. Dr. Chen has the privilege to deploy VSee for former President Obama’s Inauguration, the Navy Seals, and notables such as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former UN Secretary-general Ban Ki-moon, Angelina Jolie, and Linkin Park. Dr. Chen has also been on numerous humanitarian and medical missions trips, personally traveling to Iraq twice, Syria twice, as well as Africa, Southeast Asia, and Latin America on many occasions.
Today we are a global tribe of designers and engineers passionate about using our skills to make a difference in the healthcare space. Telemedicine shouldn’t be another EMR nightmare, and doctors don’t need more apps they won’t use. We’re here to create a telemedicine experience that’s as simple and accessible as shopping online. That’s what we’re all about.
We love traveling, and we love having opportunities to use our telemedicine platform for good. Check out some of our adventures below.
VSee Team Bonding Moments
Having the priviledge to work from home doesn’t mean we don’t get to see each other. Every year, our team will go for several a week-long fun vacation at an exotic location.
