No. 1 Mistake: Giving up and not believing in oneself

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.

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. The scary part is that the majority of these facilities still utilize archaic methods, such as pen and paper, to track their valuable equipment. 

We realized that the problems in these facilities could be solved using modern technology. Therefore we 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.
