Dr. Nadine Hachach-Haram is a doctor and entrepreneur: she is the founder and CEO of Proximie, a technology platform that allows surgeons from across the world to collaborate and assist virtually in any operating room on the planet. The process sounds like a SciFi movie – but it is here, now! Doctors can virtually “scrub in” on Proximie and, through augmented reality, they can literally point their holographic hands where to make incisions. It’s an immersive experience beyond anything the medical field has ever seen.
On This Episode Of When Women Win:
Nadine and I talked about her journey through medicine and business – it involved inspiration, resilience and breaking boundaries. As a teenager in Lebanon, Nadine saw how access to quality healthcare changed communities. While Proximie started out as an experiment to create positive impact, it has become a global company that epitomizes “the future of surgery.” Nadine discussed her solution-based thinking processes and how that mindset helped her become an entrepreneur. Finally, she talked about how to prioritize commitments to ensure you follow through with your goals.
- “Prepare, perform and perfect.”
- “Create a solution for a problem, not the other way around.”
Nadine recommends reading Crossing the Chasm by Geoffrey A. Moore, a guide for marketing and selling in high-tech industries.
