(Manchester, N.H., Sept. 28) — Software helps services companies scale. Once founders have established product market fit, they can increase their growth potential by building their expertise into a platform-based product.
Proxy Health Partners, the healthcare management and consulting company specializing in durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics and supplies (DMEPOS), has partnered with York IE, a vertically integrated strategic growth and investment firm, to build a cloud-based SaaS platform, ProxyIQ.
Through the partnership, Proxy Health Partners has joined York IE Labs, a program that helps co-found new technology startups, productize services offerings and give entrepreneurs the hands-on support they need to build sustainable companies.
“Working with York IE Labs allows us to blend our team’s extensive experience in DMEPOS with the software development expertise of York IE,” said Kerriann Catlaw, founder and CEO, Proxy Health Partners. “The functionality we have been able to build into the ProxyIQ platform — simplified workflows, precise invoicing and actionable insights — will be a game-changer for healthcare professionals managing orthotic and prosthetic expenditures.”
ProxyIQ is a first-of-its-kind platform built for supply chain management specifically around orthotic bracing care, positioning Proxy Health Partners to pioneer the future management of orthotic and prosthetic spend for its healthcare partners. ProxyIQ is built upon 30-plus years of experience and best practices in DMEPOS across the entire healthcare ecosystem.
Catlaw and her team have provided consulting and management services for dozens of large hospital networks across the country and served as subject matter experts for group purchasing organizations such as Vizient.
The ProxyIQ platform will make this expertise available to more healthcare professionals, helping them increase visibility into spend, drive better patient outcomes and improve financial performance.
