UTM Healthcare, LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of UThisMe, LLC (“UTM”). UTM was formed in 2012 by Seth Lachterman, David Ackerman, and Cameron Melville. Originally designed to address SMS and email security, the application, YouThisMe® grew to encompass cloaking posts and tweets in social media.

In October 2015, the U.S. Patent office granted UThisMe, LLC. a patent for the core technology.

In 2012, Seth Lachterman, developer of the proprietary and patented YouThisMe® technology, observed that seemingly ordinary mundane messages and social media posts could mask important private communications. He brought this idea to David Ackerman, a CPA and entrepreneur, who, as partner, brought in an invaluable group of advisors and managers.
Cameron Melville, a musician and entrepreneur became the final member of the triumvirate. He founded the philanthropic center, The Vortex LA. His family founded the philanthropic foundation, the Melville Charitable Trust. Our credo has been to ensure privacy in communications for everyone in an age that increasingly exposes what we say and think to unwanted eyes and ears. By 2016, YouThisMe® had brought in the management and marketing skills of Mark Orton and Ole Breuning.
In that year, Columbia Memorial Health partnered with YouThisMe® in launching our technology for Healthcare and HIPAA communications which has greatly broadened the reach of our offering.
