The Virtual Specialist

Our Story

During the 2009 trough of the Depression, the only signs of economic life were in Healthcare. That fall, our founder, Skip Rodenbush, met Gary Vaynerchuk, author of Crushing It, a book about how great entrepreneurs build their business through social networking. The next day he launched the Linkedin Group, Telemedicine Everywhere, with the notion that telemedicine and virtual care had the responsibility, not the potential‚Äē the responsibility, to improve outcomes, deliver healthcare to the underserved, and reduce costs throughout our healthcare system. ¬†

The Telemedicine Everywhere LinkedIn group has organically grown to over 1300 members, many of whom have been engaged from the early days. With the Healthcare industry still in need of more beneficial ways to collaborate visually and limited functionality on Linkedin groups, we launched the Healthcare Hive Community and Resource Center.

Our community focus is on bringing together our community to see, hear, interact and exchange proven virtual care solutions.

Skip met Zoom Communication founder, Eric Yuan, in 2013. Along with his partner, Dr. Ron Pion, they became Zoom Healthcare advisors and industry evangelists. Their vision of Zoom becoming the healthcare industry's de facto standard for unified communication, visual collaboration and virtual care resonated with early adopters in their extensive network. Their passion for Zoom's functionality, affordability and quality to extend care and lower cost continues along with the worldwide success and integration of Zoom into Healthcare.
