  • About Us:   ClickCare Telemedicine History

  • ClickCare Classic: ClickCare Classic was born in 1995, when a pediatrician needed to advise and assist her nurse practitioners in an off-site school clinic. At the same time, email utilization began spreading, secured lines from schools became a reality, and digital cameras, though expensive, became commercially available.

    A number of foundations, such as United Health Services; Bristol-Myers Squibb; Nynex; Binghamton University; GlaxoSmithKline; Time Warner Cable; the Appalachian Regional Commission; and several others, provided initial support.

    An archive of medical cases was assembled manually to show others the idea of being able to transmit pictures and communicate securely using the internet. Healthcare professionals started getting excited by the idea.

    After trying the then-available telemedicine systems, it became clear that any useful system would need to be: inexpensive, accessible via the web, and very user-friendly to be widely accepted.

    Since 2001, ClickCare patient case archives have been expanding with the availability of digital cameras. Medical students and pediatricians are enthusiastic about seeing each other's multimedia teaching cases and getting help from their network of specialists. Interest in ClickCare -- created by healthcare providers for healthcare providers -- continues to grow because of the need for the increase in medical collaboration.

    In 2003, ClickCare LLC migrated their development platform to Servoy, where rapid application development, and greatly expanded capabilities, like transferring videos and even PDFs electronically, became possible.

    iClickCare: iClickCare was announced in 2010. iClickCare has taken the capabilities of ClickCare Classic to a whole new level. With the wide adoption of the iPhone and iPad being used by healthcare organizations, iClickCare was developed both as a mobile iPhone/iPad app and an application that can be run in a standard browser on a computer or smart device -- all accessing the same set of HIPAA secure data. iClickCare Tech Specifications
