American Red Cross blood and platelet donors can now help save lives in less time by using the new Red Cross RapidPass online health system.
RapidPass streamlines the donation experience by allowing donors to complete pre-donation reading and health history questions online from the convenience of a computer. It is is expected to reduce the time donors with a RapidPass spend at blood drives by up to 15 minutes.
Mario Sedlock, Done Recruitment Director for the Red Cross Alabama and Central Guld Coast region says, "RapidPass is a simple, convenient wayfor Red Cross donors to make the most of their time while helping save lives."
To get a RapidPass on the day of a blood donation, donors should visit redcrossblood.org/rapidpass, answer all of the questions, then print their RapidPass or show it on a mobile device when they donate at their local Red Cross centers.
