American Red Cross blood and platelet donors can now help save lives in less time by using the new Red Cross RapidPass online health history system.

RapidPass streamlines the donation process by al lowing donors to complete pre-donation reading and health history questions online from the convenience of a computer or mobile de vice. It became available to donors on October 26 and is expected to reduce the time donors with a RapidPass spend at blood drives by up to 15 minutes.

"When people come to donate, they are giving more than blood or platelets — they are also generously giving their time," said Jared Schultzman, Communications Manager for the Pacific Northwest Blood Services Region. "RapidPass is a simple, convenient way for 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 the website, complete all of the questions, then print their RapidPass or show it on a mobile device when they come to donate.
