NASHVILLE, Tenn., October 31, 2023 – OMNIMED™, a medical technology company that improves patient outcomes while reducing healthcare costs, inefficiencies, and risks in today’s value-based healthcare environments announced today that Damien Burgess, DC, MSc, MSN, FNP-C has been appointed the company’s Chief Strategy Officer.

Dr. Burgess’ background as both a Board-Certified Chiropractor and Board-Certified Family Nurse Practitioner gives him unique perspectives on the needs of hospitals, medical clinics, and ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs). Over the course of his career, he has assumed leadership roles as both an entrepreneur and C-Suite executive.
“We are excited that Damien will be a significant part of the team as he most definitely adds a new dimension to OMNIMED’s capabilities,” said Nick Moran, CEO of OMNIMED. “His exceptional background as a practicing healthcare professional on the ground is invaluable in our discussions with potential partners, providing insights that only an insider can. His extensive experience serving as a strategic planner and his ability to look at operations and communications from both sides will be an asset to OMNIMED. We look forward to having him on board and how his perspective will help ensure our operational success.”
Dr. Burgess brings more than 15 years of experience as a healthcare professional and senior leader in clinical operations and business development to OMNIMED. Prior to joining the company, Dr. Burgess held several key industry positions, most recently with Laboratory Services LLC where he served as the Chief Executive Officer, leading the company through the mergers & acquisitions process, overseeing financial performance and risk, managing regulatory compliance, and supervising brand development.
Before joining Laboratory Services, he was Vice President of Clinical Operations for Field Trip Health where he developed, launched, and operated 12 medical clinical locations in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, introducing new programs and evaluating and refreshing existing ones. Dr. Burgess has also been Vice President of Clinical Operations for Prime MSO and founded both an orthopedics and spine center and a sports medicine chiropractic and rehabilitation practice.
“I am honored to become OMNIMED’s Chief Strategy Officer and look forward to working closely with Nick, Jill, and the whole team to advance our strategy and grow the impact of the revolutionary SmartOR™ SaaS application,” said Dr. Burgess. “I am inspired by OMNIMED’s commitment to technological innovation and to becoming an industry leader for Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the operating room and surgical suite. As a healthcare practitioner, I appreciate OMNIMED’s dedication to better-serving patients by better serving our partners and stakeholders with the intelligence gathered and analyzed by the system.”
