The Dubai Health Authority has selected Proximie to join the Dubai Government’s Future Accelerators programme, which will see us showcase our technology solutions to three healthcare problems facing the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Starting on September 24th, and lasting for nine weeks, the programme involves meeting key government stakeholders, understanding the challenges faced and co-creating pilot projects to be developed with the Dubai government for future implementation.
The three challenges Proximie will be addressing via our advanced augmented reality technology platform are:
- Improving the quality of life for patients through early and swift healthcare intervention
- Reducing patient waiting time in emergency cases
- Improving the accuracy and safety of surgeries, such as spinal surgery.
Proximie co-founder, Nadine Hachach-Haram, said: “Our augmented reality healthcare solutions have already had success in other countries in reducing waiting times and training surgeons through remote ‘real-time’ mentoring, so we are delighted to be able to share our technology with the Dubai Government to help solve some of the pain points in its health system.”
Dubai Future Accelerators was launched in 2016 to facilitate partnerships between entrepreneurs, private companies and the Dubai Government to tackle existing problems and innovate for the future. Proximie is part of its fifth cohort.
Proximie Regional Commercial Director for United Arab Emirates, Tariq El-Titi, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for Proximie to be able to work closely with the Dubai Government and its key stakeholders. We are looking forward to the programme, as well as forging lasting and impactful partnerships with those involved.”
