Troy Medical

Troy Medical

Approximately 20% of Americans live in rural communities. Over 80% of these communities are medically underserved. Troy Medical is dedicated to improving access to quality healthcare for these 53 million Americans.

With a hybrid in-person and telehealth model, using part-time physicians committed to the long-term care of local patients, Troy Medical delivers the highest quality medical care to remote and underserved communities. We provide personalized support for the patient and the medical expertise necessary to manage chronic conditions to the highest standards in the patient’s hometown.

Virtual Optix

Virtual Optix is focused on using extended reality solutions to solve real-world problems in medicine. The first product will demonstrate how extended reality can augment patient education by using immersive virtual reality experiences to demonstrate the visual outcomes of cataract surgery. In addition to improved patient understanding, this solution will also automate a segment of patient education, liberating the critically understaffed medical workforce for more direct patient care.
