What specific problem are you solving?

At the highest level, Proxie Health solves the "care reach" problem created by the health provider shortage problem coupled with the lack of visibility within the home setting which impacts healthy longevity within older adult populations (>60) with especially acute impact within low-middle income communities.

According to new projections published March 2024 by the AAMC (Association of American Medical Colleges), the United States will face a physician shortage of up to 86,000 physicians by 2036. 

Some other key statistics outlining the impact of this issue overall are: 


  • Older women make up two-thirds of those in the top 25% of the population for highest yearly burden when both treatment costs and lost wages are combined. 
  • Of those who lost wages due to chronic disease, 56% are older women. 
  • At the same time, older women also have the lowest household incomes and the highest out-of-pocket medical expenses.

People of Color

  • Blacks and Hispanics/Latinos aged 60+ have $4,000 more in average yearly costs due to chronic disease than whites and far lower financial resources to deal with this. 
  • Older people of color experience 15% higher average yearly treatment costs than whites because they have a greater number of and/or more costly chronic diseases.
  • Older people of color experience $3,000 more in average yearly lost wages than whites because they are more likely to experience job interruptions due to health.
  • Nearly 40% of Black and Hispanic/Latino older adults lost wages because of their chronic disease compared to 16.6% of whites. 


What is your solution?

Proxie is building the smartest care algorithm and coordination platform which combines human guidance with AI to enable health providers and payers in helping any adult > 50 manage, improve or prevent chronic illness by providing greater health data visibility and insight at home. 

We ingest data from four sources: 

+ Electronic medical records

+ Open-source large language model data 

+ Standard wearable data (Apple Healthkit, Google fit, Omron, etc.)

+ Patient-reported outcome data - from Proxie health coordinators and care partners (family, friends) permissioned into the system 

That data is then analyzed referencing 23 different aspects of health across 3 dimensions - medical, social & behavioral to deliver and optimize health management plans that are understandable, actionable and accessible by our members.  

Who does your solution serve, and in what ways will the solution impact their lives?
