This platform is tracking organs for transplant as they travel between donors and recipients

from Technical.ly

When a human organ is donated to a patient for transplant, it has to move between people. But that also requires a longer trip between cities, in which organs travel in a variety of vehicles, from car and train, plane, helicopter or, perhaps more increasingly in the near future, drone. But no matter what mode it takes, there’s a lot that goes into the journey to insure that it travels safely. After all, a human organ that is being given to help sustain life is among the most precious of cargo, so it can’t be dropped or harmed. And there are many stakeholders involved in this process, from donor organizations and couriers to surgeons and hospitals. Plus, arriving on time is crucial. It’s the logistics behind these trips that is being tackled by a new Baltimore venture whose founders include an investor who built technology powering supply chain and logistics systems at Under Armour, a University of Maryland Medical Center transplant surgeon and a retired U.S. Navy commander and pilot with a background in manned and unmanned aviation, engineering and operations. more
