Understand.com® earns a spot in the Inc. 500|5000

Inc-500 logo

Understand.com, the leading provider of 3D medical animations for physicians and healthcare companies, is proud to announce it has made the prestigious Inc. 500|5000 list as one of the fastest-growing, private companies in America.

Understand.com has educated well over 5,000,000 patients worldwide through its innovative 3D medical animations. What started with a handful of surgeons licensing content in 2003 has grown to over 2,000 physicians in 40 countries worldwide and corporate clients including Allergan, Stryker, Johnson & Johnson, GE Money and PharmaDerm.

Undertand.com was ranked 1,354 with an extraordinary three-year growth rate of 215 percent. “Understand.com is a blend of healthcare and technology; two market segments that have faired well in this economy”, says Darik Volpa, Founder and CEO. “We have a diversified customer base around the world with strong retention rates. Understand.com is well positioned for continued growth with expansion into more than 30 additional medical specialties.”

“The company was started to address the need for better patient education. Coming from a medical device background, I saw first-hand the huge disconnect in communication between physicians and patients,” states Volpa. “Doctors are pressed for time and may not be good at communicating complex healthcare topics and patients are nervous with generally poor healthcare literacy. I believed that Understand.com could successfully bridge this gap with engaging, visual content. Being recognized by Inc. as one of the fastest growing companies validates what I knew back then.”

Starting with an orthopedic library, Understand.com quickly expanded into Plastic Surgery, Dermatology and Hair Restoration. “Our approach to creating a library has always been, ‘an inch wide and a mile deep’”, continues Volpa. This deep-dive strategy has paid off through endorsement and/or partnerships with leading medical societies and associations such as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine, American Cancer Society, and the Skin Cancer Foundation.

“Having these leading medical societies’ seal of approval speaks to the quality of our content. Being named to the Inc. 500|5000 list is nice recognition for the team and for our hard work and commitment to providing cutting-edge patient education,” smiles Volpa. “Look for us to crack the top 500 next year.”
