ABOUT US

We enable clinicians to collaborate from anywhere in the world

HOW IT STARTED

In late 2016, Dr Nadine Hachach-Haram FRCS (Plast), BEM, drew on her surgical experiences and her passion for innovation and education, to create Proximie.

“I wanted to create a platform that could extend the reach of a surgeon’s expertise, and make that skill timeless. A multi-sensory experience that was a catalyst for collaboration, and that could eventually digitise a surgeon’s footprint. We wanted to create the effect of a borderless operating room that could empower surgeons to remotely share knowledge that could ultimately reduce variation in care, and help save lives.”

PERU, 2016

Proximie was used to connect expert surgeons in the U.S. to clinical teams in Peru and El Salvador for cleft lip and palate repair surgeries on local children.

LONDON, 2020

Proximie is used in 20% of all NHS hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic, in order to limit physical numbers in operating rooms but increase clinical expertise.

USA, 2020

GLOBAL, 2020

Proximie completes its 6,000th assisted procedure and is now operating in five continents and 35 countries.
SAVING LIVES
Variation in care and a lack of access to care costs lives. We’re on a mission to address this, and save lives by sharing the world’s best clinical practice.
OPTIMISING THE OPERATING ROOM AND CATH LAB
By combining the best human expertise with the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR), and Machine Learning (ML) we can create a borderless operating room, where every operation in every hospital is captured, analysed, digitised and predicted for future use.
SOLVING GLOBAL CONNECTIVITY
We believe we can revolutionise healthcare by making it more efficient, effective, affordable and most importantly, accessible, by harnessing the power of 5G and Space Technology to help solve the connectivity problems in healthcare.

“Having used proximie in Ethiopia and in the US during the pandemic, the main role of this technology is to bring people closer together emotionally.”

“Platforms such as Proximie are the future of surgical traininG. I cannot envisage a scenario where such platforms will not be part of gold standard training in the next 3-5 years.”
