We enable clinicians to collaborate from anywhere in the world
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.”

As a practicing surgeon, Dr. Nadine witnessed firsthand, in both the developed and developing world, the considerable variation in clinical care which drives up cost and results in poor patient outcomes. Proximie was born out of a need, and her ambition as a surgeon was to find a solution and scale it using technology.
