JSP Ventures Companies MediGO and MissionGO Win 2022 Edison Award
The GOteam earned Gold in the Aerospace and Robotics Category for innovation in Autonomous and Unmanned Systems
BALTIMORE, MD – April 25, 2022 – JSP Ventures, a founder of visionary brands through long-term capital investment, operational excellence and strategic guidance, is proud to announce MediGO and MissionGO, two of its portfolio companies, were named the winner of a 2022 Edison Award. MediGO is a medical supply chain enterprise planning platform bringing stakeholders together through an IoT logistical data bridge, integrating with sister company MissionGO, a global leader in unmanned aircraft 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. The GOteam is the 2022 Gold winner for Autonomous and Unmanned Systems within the Aerospace and Robotics category.
“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 (ETAs) 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
Chris Corgnati, President of MissionGO, added, “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. 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.”
MissionGO and MediGO were recently included on a list of 15 outstanding innovators in the Greater Baltimore region, winning a 2022 Maryland Inno Fire Award in the Medical Technology category. Additionally, MissionGO was also named a finalist in the TIACA’s 3rd sustainability awards.
