About TVS

The Virtual Specialist designs and implements digital healthcare solutions that enable care to more people, in more places, at lower costs than ever before.

Who We Are

The Healthcare industry is still in need of more beneficial ways to collaborate visually. TVS is made up of healthcare and information technology innovators with decades of proven expertise. Having been there, done that (often the first ones), we serve patients, providers, and payers with proven breakthrough solutions to healthcare’s most pervasive and costly problems.

For over a decade, TVS have been committed to improving healthcare through instant visual collaboration between doctors, nurses, caregivers, patients, and educators anytime, anywhere, on any device. With customized software development, content creation, Zoom video collaboration, and other professional services, TVS works improve the access and delivery of quality healthcare.

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 I launched the Linkedin Group, Telemedicine Everywhere, with the notion that telemedicine and virtual care had the responsibility, not the potential― the responsibility, to improve outcomes, deliver healthcare to the underserved, and reduce costs throughout our healthcare system.  The group has organically grown to over 1300 members, many of whom have been engaged from the early days.

The idea behind the Virtual Specialist and the Healthcare Hive were formed a few years in to the Telemedicine Everywhere group when Skip met the founder of Zoom, Eric Yuan, in 2013 and introduced Zoom’s first major healthcare opportunity. Skip become Eric's healthcare advisor and was anxious to share Zoom’s Version 1.0 capabilities to the healthcare industry. That passion has not slowed down, along with the success and evolution of Zoom Video Communications in Healthcare.

The Healthcare Hive

During Summer of 2020, we introduced the Healthcare Hive, a free online community and centralized resource center, with the notion that telehealth and virtual care had the responsibility, not the potential― the responsibility, to improve outcomes, deliver healthcare to the underserved, and reduce costs throughout our healthcare system. 

The Healthcare Hive is a platform created for healthcare professionals, prevention specialists, and digital health innovators to learn, share and collaborate on virtual care implementation practices.

Zoominar

What Is a ZOOMINAR?
The HIVE leverages today's top communication and social media technologies to create ZOOMINARS.

Unlike webinars, where you only hear and maybe see the presenter, in a Zoominar everyone can see, hear, and interact using their Smartphone, Tablet, PC, or videoconferencing system. The Zoominar becomes both message and medium.  All you need to participate and it's Zoom and it's FREE.

Zoominars are all about learning, sharing, and collaborating. A live two-way video discussion between presenters, panelists, and attendees ensures you will learn something new and have some fun in the process. ZOOMINARS are more engaging, informal, educational, and interactive compared to plain old webinars.
