The company was founded by Robert E. Higgs. As is often times the case in real life situations, the vision and subsequent technologies as developed and marketed by the company was birthed from a near tragedy involving Mr. Higgs wife, Carole. Mrs. Higgs was admitted to an acute care hospital facility for a common surgical procedure. Normally speaking, the hospital stay for this type of procedure was expected to last only two to three days.
Over the next 35 days with 27 days in an ICU environment, Carole found herself fighting for her very life due to error’s, misjudgments and lack of actionable data. Mr. Higgs observed that many of the very systems for which his wife Carole’s well being rested were either flawed or simply non-existent. Mr. Higgs himself an engineer made a commitment to his wife and himself that he would apply all his experience and abilities to help bring about change to an industry that for too long has resisted fundamental change in many areas having to do with clinical decision making.
Fueled by passion that often times comes through adversity, Mr. Higgs formed ICUcare LLC, the predecessor to ISeeYouCare, Inc. in 2008. ISeeYouCare, Inc. develops and deploys disruptive healthcare solutions in the form of Patient-Centered Medical Technologies. Therefore, developing exceptional products backed by exceptional service are our standard.
ISeeYouCare, Inc. is the successor to ICUcare LLC, a Health IT software and solutions developer located in Evansville, IN. The company was formed in August of 2008 with but one mission; bring about change in the nation’s Health Care System to the benefit of patients, care givers and the industry itself.
ICUcare LLC is announced the initial Beta version launch the new eDoc® Telemedicine System. The system was designed to provide a platform for state-of-the-art medical communications and information in support patient and doctor consultation in either real time live consult basis or store and forward basis anywhere in the world.

The company deployed its first eDoc® Telemedicine/EHR Mobile Cart Solution in the NICU Unit of the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.
The President of the ATA, Dr. Jay Sanders remarks “that he was glad to see that someone had finally put the ‘Medicine’ with the ‘Tele'”, a reference to the fact that the Telemedicine Industry itself had never been more than a video (Skype) based form of communication between two distant physicians.
Global Care International, a sister company to ICUcare, deployed its first eDoc® Telemedicine/EHR Mobile Cart Solution at the Keffi Hospital, in Nasarawa State, Nigeria. That soon followed with other deployments in Lagos and Abuja Nigeria, Accra, Ghana, Sierra Leone and Kenya.

Global Care formed a partnership with a leading health delivery services company in Brazil to market its technology to South American Markets. After completing all development activities associated with “localizing” the platforms, the new technology was successfully deployed at three locations in San Paulo and surrounding communities.
The company debuted its newly enhanced My eMHR web-based and value added Personal Health Records solution. There are “four” revolutionary technology solutions included in the newly revamped and redeveloped My eMHR (PHR). This development completes the vision from which the My eMHR was originally conceived, a comprehensive, interoperable, longitudinal personal health records based system in the form of a Health Information Exchange (HIE).

ICUcare made the decision to enhance its Telemedicine/EHR Ambulatory solution to include in-patient. This is in keeping with the company’s long term objective to offer a health delivery solution to the Long-Term Care (LTC) market.
ICUcare by way of its sister company, Global Care International has made significant headway in garnering global attention. The company’s technology was featured in the 2014 FIFA World Cup Games in Brazil. ICUcare’s technology platform was implemented at eighteen stadiums and seven hospital systems throughout Brazil providing on demand medical services on behalf of the FIFA. This marked the first-time eHealth/Telemedicine was utilized in such a venue.
ICUCare completes development of the Universal Access Smart Health Card VLPHR Data Management System. This development was in response to a challenge given to the Founder/CEO Robert Higgs by General Gerald Caron, DDS Commander of Andrews Air Force Base regarding the military’s Common Access card (CAC). General Caron challenged ICUcare to develop the means to place “all that wonderful medical data onto a 128k microchip”. According to General Caron, the DOD had been trying to accomplish that feat for over ten years without success. (See Press Release)
ICUcare decided to take its web-based enterprise platform, My eMHR and make it mobile. Switching to mobile development as opposed to either .Net or web development was a new and challenging transition. Taking a web-based platform such as the My eMHR with three million lines of code and making a mobile APP for Microsoft, IOS and Android was no small feat. The development was accomplished in nine months on all three platforms.
The company focused their development toward a Home eHealth Delivery System for use by patient’s suffering from Asthma, COPD, Hypertension, Diabetes and other chronic diseases. This development involved both software and hardware development. The company worked with several leading medical devices manufactures in developing interfaces for the seamless transfer of data from the device to the patient’s cloud based My eMHR repository.
The company was restructured from a Limited Liability Company to a C-Corporation. ISeeYouCare, Inc. was formed.
IseeYouCare, Inc. moved to new location in Evansville, IN and opened a new Marketing/Sales office in Louisville, KY.
ISeeYouCare is proud to announce that they have been selected by the Healthcare Enterprises Network (HEN) as a member of their inaugural class of VIPs (Very Innovative Pioneer).
