Designed by founder-CEO Dr. Nadine Hachach-Haram, a working surgeon herself, Proximie is a technology platform that uses a combination of AR, artificial intelligence and real-time communications, to allow clinicians to virtually “scrub in” and collaborate with each other from anywhere in the world. Used in operating rooms and cath labs globally, Proximie has been deployed in 35 countries across 5 continents.
“The quality of health care you receive shouldn’t depend on where you live. This is especially true as the pandemic has swept the world, limiting travel by specialists who normally would be on-site in the operating room,” says Dr. Hachach-Haram.
In one recent case, a 31-year man in London needed a specialized operation for a rare form of cancer. Using Proximie, Dr. Jim Porter, an expert in the required robotic procedure, was able to help guide the London surgical team through a complex series of incisions over the course of five hours – from his living room 4,700 miles away in Seattle. The surgery was a complete success with the patient back on his feet in three days.
