2021 was a year of accelerated growth for VeeOne Health as our company continued to expand its telemedicine products and services, entered international markets, and bolstered industry partnerships.
In February, we announced a new partnership with Dignity Health Telemedicine Network, a leg of CommonSpirit Health™, to provide tele-ICU physician services, making it possible for patients to get the specialty care they need without having to leave their primary care hospital . CommonSpirit Health is the healthcare organization formed in 2019 by the alignment of Dignity Health™ and Catholic Health Initiatives, operating 137 hospitals and more than 1,000 care sites across 21 states.
In March, VeeOne Health received ISO 27001 certification and successfully completed the Service Organization Controls (SOC 2 Type 1) audit report. These milestones validate that VeeOne Health has invested in the people, processes, controls, and technologies to protect VeeOne Health and customer data, and that it is managing information security according to international best practices.
Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) is becoming a compelling way to deliver follow-on care to patients after they leave the hospital. In May, VeeOne Health announced a partnership with BioIntelliSense to deliver RPM by integrating the most advanced technology in wearables and analytics with VeeOne’s Virtual Care as-a-Service (VCaaS) platform. Unlike traditional RPM, which is costly and complex to deploy and delivers only episodic measurements, the combined VeeOne and BioIntelliSense capabilities provide a high-resolution longitudinal view of a patient’s health status.

Building on its mission to deliver remote healthcare throughout the continuum of care, VeeOne Health added medically trained interpreters for over 40 languages (including American Sign Language), provided by Voyce Global for foreign language translation during telehealth visits. Typically, providers and telehealth users must dial into a call center and wait until an interpreter can be found, but this partnership eliminates that step. Providers and patients can now access live, on-demand language interpreters, often in less than 20 seconds, with the integration of the Voyce technology into the care session.
In August, we exhibited for the first time at the 2021 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Global Conference in Las Vegas, where we announced VeeGo 360, our all-in-one remote patient monitoring (RPM) platform. VeeGo 360 enables device management, teleconsults and monitoring services, representing one of the few fully integrated RPM platforms available today. VeeOne Health also announced that it will be piloting VeeGo 360 and BioIntelliSense medical grade wearable devices at Phoenix-based Banner Health, one of the largest non-profit healthcare systems in the United States, with plans to expand to all of Banner’s 28 hospitals in early 2022.
To support our company’s innovative position in providing a single telehealth platform to serve the needs of both specialty and large healthcare systems and all those who administer telehealth care, VeeMed formally changed its name to VeeOne Health in September.
“From the beginning, our vision has been to offer a unified platform that healthcare providers can use to expand their telehealth services, a platform that is designed to scale as providers add services to meet the changing needs of patients,” said Dr. Arshad Ali, VeeOne Health president and co-founder. “The new name incorporating ‘one’ speaks to our vision of one company that delivers for our colleagues one system for telehealth care,” he added.

In October, VeeOne Health announced that it is helping Intermountain Healthcare expand the reach of its telebehavioral health, teleneurology, and telestroke programs through a newly announced partnership.
To further enhance the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in VeeOne Health’s telehealth platform, we announced in November a strategic partnership with UC Berkeley’s Fung Institute for Engineering Leadership. The vision behind this partnership is to speed up patient charting and explore other applications of AI and Machine Learning (ML) technologies in streamlining healthcare workflows.
In a sign of its growing market leadership, VeeOne Health announced in December that it was recognized as a Representative Vendor in the 2021 Gartner report, “Market Guide for Virtual Care Solutions.”
“VeeOne Health believes that while there are hundreds of vendors offering point virtual care products, VeeOne Health is one of the only vendors that offers complete end-to-end solutions for virtual care that include telehealth communications technology, remote patient monitoring, language translation services, integration with electronic health records, and a network of specialists who can augment staff in a hospital or clinic,” said Ijaz Arif, CEO and Chairman of VeeOne Health.
2021 was an exciting year for VeeOne Health, and we expect to build on this momentum in 2022 as we continue to expand our industry partnerships, announce new relationships with healthcare organizations at home and abroad, and roll out new and enhanced VCaaS solutions for the full continuum of healthcare.
