Vsee began with two Stanford PhD students, Milton and Erika, who wanted to make remote work simple. Their lightweight tool has given them the chance to deploy VSee for former President Obama’s inauguration, the Navy Seals, Hillary Clinton and Angelina Jolie in their refugee work, Ban Ki-Moon, Linkin Park, and many others.  VSee's telemedicine calling came in 2012 when they were invited to take VSee to the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Gabon. Shortly after arriving, Milton saw a young woman die 15 minutes after showing her heartbeat on his portable ultrasound. She was the victim of an overgrown tumor which would never have been allowed to grow so huge in the US. What if telemedicine had been available to her? This question continues to drive VSee's team today as they strive to overcome the barriers preventing telehealth from being an everyday experience.

In July 2017, Vsee generously donated their software, training, and live technical support to help Telemed Foundation orchestrate our first Grand Round with doctors in California and Egypt's Abu El-Reesh Children's hospital.
