2006 CIO 100 Award
Every year CIO Magazine identifies and honors 100 organizations that have distinguished themselves by creating business value through the effective and innovative use of IT. The process for choosing the CIO 100 honorees is systematic and very competitive. A CIO 100 award is an acknowledged mark of enterprise excellence. In a 2003 survey by PR Week magazine, CEOs named the CIO 100 among the top 10 most influential corporate scorecards anywhere, compiled by any publication or organization.
This year, Dallas-based non-profit MediSend International has been awarded the coveted prize for MediSend's innovations in the use of IT in supply chain and donor asset management. Please see the entire article entitled, Innovation For Growth.
MediSend's innovative approach to providing the availability of medical equipment and supplies to those in need, as well as their system of fulfillment, has garnered much attention. MediSend has developed business process management applications that allow MediSend to manage the entire supply chain of donating supplies and equipment, as well as ordering, delivering and tracking medical aid to hospitals and organizations in developing countries.

Most of the recipients of the CIO 100 are not non-profits -- rather companies such as Dell, FedEx, General Motors and UPS. Non-profits sharing the stage with MediSend include Lance Armstrong Foundation and The University of Texas M.D.Anderson Cancer Center. The winning of the CIO 100 Award simply states that MediSend's excellence in IT is one more way that they fulfill their mission of Sending Hope and Saving Lives.
