We began this journey enabling surgeons to virtually join any OR. Now, we’re using this capability to digitise the operating room, bringing patients the collective expertise of the best surgeons in the world – where data collected and shared on Proximie can help them receive life-saving care, no matter where they live.”
Dr Shahzad Malik, general partner at Advent Life Sciences, commented: “We are delighted to partner with Proximie and a world-class group of investors as the company expands its global footprint and product capabilities. The company is a perfect fit for our ethos of backing best-in-class innovative life sciences businesses that have the capability to positively impact human health and healthcare delivery in paradigm changing ways.”

Proximie’s technology platform combines AI, machine learning and augmented reality to facilitate live sharing of the operating room, creating a connected surgical care ecosystem to better support patients and hospitals.”
