JSP Ventures, a founder of visionary brands through long-term capital investment, operational excellence and strategic guidance, has announced that MediGO and MissionGO have been named winners of a 2022 Edison Award.
Known as the GOteam, the companies were announced as the 2022 Gold winner for Autonomous and Unmanned Systems within the Aerospace and Robotics category.
MediGO is a medical supply chain enterprise planning platform bringing stakeholders together through an Internet of Things (IoT) logistical data bridge, integrating with sister company MissionGO, a global leader in Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) FAA production, infrastructure inspection, training and critical medical cargo operations.
The Edison Awards honor some of the most innovative products and services in the world, as well as excellence and leadership in innovation around four criteria: Concept, Value, Delivery and Impact.
Working together as the GOteam, MediGO and MissionGO were recognized by the Edison Awards for the integration of UAS into the MediGO organ transplant supply chain, including location, status, condition, and stakeholder communication throughout the entire process; capabilities that are not currently provided by any other solution.
“MediGO is the only supply chain platform in the world integrated with UAS to prepare for decision-making between autonomous and traditional modes of transportation, ultimately providing improved healthcare resource efficiencies, driving improved outcomes and reducing costs,” said Scott Plank, founder of JSP Ventures, CEO of MediGO, and co-founder and Executive Chairman of MissionGO. “Together with MissionGO’s unmatched leadership in UAS operations, the Baltimore based GOteam is building a foundation for the future of medical cargo deliveries and an innovative way to save lives. We are extremely proud to receive a 2022 Edison Award, and are excited to expand on the ground-breaking work that led to this achievement.”
Key benefits of the GOteam include:
- Quality – Reducing transportation delays result in higher donor organ quality and viability
- Predictability – A readily available UAS delivery system eliminates unexpected delays and increases shipment
- Control – Real-time estimated time of arrivals grants OPOs and hospitals the ability to manage time more efficiently
- Sustainability – All electric UAS in a multimodal transportation chain will reduce overall carbon footprint
“The availability of MediGO’s OPO and Transplant Center Delivery Management software, powered by Scoutline, combined with MissionGO’s expertise in aviation and working relationships with the FAA and international aviation authorities, supports the highest levels of safety and efficiency,” said Chris Corgnati, President of MissionGO. “It was a huge accomplishment that as a result of this partnership, the GOteam was responsible for the first successful organ transplant delivered by UAS.”
