Our Story

VeeMed began with a spark of inspiration that brought together three forward-thinking men: a U.S. board-certified intensivist, a Duke and USC alumnus and technology entrepreneur, and a seasoned telemedicine evangelist. Meeting in far-flung corners of the globe from Silicon Valley, California to Wuhan, China to Dubai, UAE their common vision ignited a resolve to create a next-generation turnkey telemedicine solution. The founding of VeeMed in 2016 only a year after two of the founders were recognized for innovation by President Barack Obama represented the coalescence of groundbreaking technology, deep clinical expertise, and operational excellence.
