ViewMedica celebrates 20 years of educating patients
20 years ago, we published our first patient education videos for an orthopedic practice in South Florida, Broward Orthopedic Specialists (still a client). The internet was young and in great need of video content to explain complex medical issues in a visual way. The founders of Swarm Interactive, publisher of ViewMedica, had the expertise needed to make that content. In the process, we pioneered many of the methods and technologies that have become standard practice for internet-based patient education.
Today, ViewMedica has a library of more than 1,600 videos covering all the major medical specialties. And the technology behind ViewMedica continues to advance, giving our thousands of subscribing medical practices, hospitals and healthcare companies the best tools for patient education.
To celebrate our 20th anniversary, we are updating our website and unveiling a new logo for ViewMedica. The new site is fast, accessible and improves the way new subscribers learn about our services. Current subscribers will see similar improvements made to their administration area as we roll these updates through that part of the site in the coming months.
The new logo is the first change to ViewMedica's branding since 2005. It includes a new play-button triangle icon that you will see in use on this website, in our application icons and within the ViewMedica video player.
Since day one, we have enjoyed creating new and effective ways to educate patients and help healthcare workers improve patient engagement. And we’re excited about the new videos and the new technologies we are developing for release in our 20th year and beyond.
