MediGO, a hardware and software platform for organ transplantation logistics, today announced its official launch into the national healthcare industry at the annual meeting of the Association for Organ Procurement Organizations. MediGO founder and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Joseph Scalea, will join AOPO president-elect, and CEO of Nevada Donor Network, Joseph Ferriera to discuss how technology bridges the workflow gaps in organ transportation.
The MediGO platform, which will be demonstrated throughout the 3-day event, enables stakeholders across the transplantation continuum to track organ shipments in real-time, communicate in real-time and monitor shipment quality to safeguard the irreplaceable gift of life from donors and donor families. Data gathered by MediGO shipments will drive machine-learning algorithms to improve performance across the supply chain.
Additionally, environmental and physical stimuli, such as temperature, pressure, humidity, light and vibration, experienced by organ shipments and captured by MediGO’s tracking system will generate scientifically and statistically actionable data to improve routing of organ shipments.
“Our proven team of supply chain and logistics experts from the private and public sectors have developed tracking and communications platforms for all types of cargo and modes of transportation,” said Scott Plank, CEO of MediGO. “Key to MediGO’s development and implementation is the close tie between Organ Procurement Organizations and transplant centers. That connection is critical to care for the life-saving gifts of organ donors.”
MediGO is the next generation hardware and software platform for organ transplantation logistics. Located in Baltimore, Maryland, MediGO is focused on increasing access to organ transplantation by optimizing the transplant supply chain. MediGO offers real-time monitoring of organ transportation including location, temperature, and environmental factors that inform logistics decisions, current estimated time of arrival for organ shipments, and a centralized in-app communication system for all relevant stakeholders.
