Today's Entrepreneur is Tomio Daumit, Co-founder of Digital Medical. Hospitals and ambulatory centers lose an average of $330 million per month in revenue, due to lost surgical equipment. There is also an average of 9 million surgical procedures cancelled each year due to scheduling errors, costing $225 billlion in revenue, that's where Digital Medical comes in. Digital Medical developed a platform that streamlines the process, allowing facilities to alert vendors of upcoming surgical cases, reduce scheduling errors and missed case deliveries, track equipment throughout the  delivery, sterilization, and surgical process, and reduce lost equipment penalties and accountability errors.

Daumit is a dedicated entrepreneur, techie, nerd and avid winter sports enthusiast. His first exposure in healthcare was in 2004 at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, where he interned in the marketing and design department.  He is a Fine Arts graduate.
