How Healthcare Found Us

In 2007, a couple of Johns Hopkins baseball coaches had the idea to have athletes record and upload videos to an online service where they would provide video analysis instruction. They would send their feedback to the athlete, family, and coaches. It was an instant hit in the area. They reviewed thousands of videos in their first year, and grew their footprint significantly with the addition of virtual coaches.

What happened next was pretty cool. These guys were approached by some pretty big names in sports and athletic training to use their virtual interactive instruction platform for their training businesses. The business pivoted from a training business to a software-as-a-service in 2009. It was at this point when the business started getting noticed from professional sports organizations and interest from sports medicine organizations.

Healthcare found us. We saw that we could use our technology platform in ways not just to help athletes with their swings, but we could mature the platform to help people with their health. ViiMed was born.
