About the VSee Team

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 1000 companies including Walgreens, MDLIVE, Trinity, DaVita, HCA, Seton, McKesson-US Oncology, and others. 

VSee was founded in 2008 by two Stanford PhD students, Milton and Erika, who wanted to make remote work simple. The original VSee platform was coded by Milton who did his PhD research on the psychology of video communications.  Milton has deployed VSee for former President Obama’s Inauguration, for the Navy Seals, for Hillary Clinton and Angelina Jolie in their refugee work. He has also personally traveled to Iraq twice, Syria twice, as well as Africa, Southeast Asia, and Latin America on numerous humanitarian and medical missions trips.

Today we are a global band of designers and engineers passionate about using our skills to do good as we strive to overcome the barriers preventing telehealth from being an everyday experience. 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 as shopping online. That’s what we do best.

VSee is funded by Salesforce.com, National Science Foundation, and In-Q-Tel
