Proximie, a health technology platform digitally connecting operating rooms, has successfully raised $80 million in a Series C equity financing. The investment follows a year in which Proximie saw an increase in its Total Contracted Value, supported more than 13,000 surgeries, and expanded its global footprint to 100 countries.
The funding round was led by Advent Life Sciences, a trans-Atlantic venture investor building life sciences businesses, with participation from new investors Emerson Collective, SoftBank Vision Fund 2, British Patient Capital, Mubadala Investment Company, and the Minderoo Foundation. Existing investors F-Prime Capital, Eight Roads, Questa Capital, Global Ventures, and Maverick Ventures also participated in the round.
Proceeds will be used to accelerate development of key products and services, build out Proximie's marketplace ecosystem and scale their Operating System of the OR, a centralized platform delivering connected surgical care. Hospitals and surgical centers who use Proximie's technology will have access to preoperative data that can help inform patient care, real time collaborative tools to record, train, and deliver care, and postoperative content management tools to capture and distribute content to their colleagues. Taken together, Proximie will allow health systems to establish an intelligent, digital layer to the OR, enabling them to save time, money, and more lives.
Proximie has been used for cases in surgical specialities at over 500 hospitals worldwide. Hospitals have applied Proximie's technology to drive efficiencies in the surgical backlog following COVID-19, increased the speed of training surgeons while maintaining costs, and built hub and spoke models concentrating surgical care and expertise in central locations to reduce the time and costs associated with travel.
