At Bonfils Blood Center, we're excited to be able to offer Bonfils blood donors a new feature starting Sunday, June 24. It's called Fast Track, and it could help you save up to 20 minutes on your visit when you come to donate blood by filling out your donor health history questionnaire online, from the comfort of your home or office, instead of having our staff ask all the questions.
Your Fast Track Health History must be completed the same day you donate. Most people say it takes about 10 minutes to complete.
Here are some tips:
Enter your name as it appears on your Bonfils donor ID card or legal ID. Do not use a nickname.
Use the calendar tool to enter your date of birth. Select year, then month, then day (in that order).
The questions do not get entered into a computer system, so it's important you print and bring your Fast Track Ticket. (Do not exit your browser before your ticket prints.) The information you input on the Fast Track Health History questionnaire cannot be retrieved without it.
For smart phones or tablets (mobile devices) only: do not exit your browser, zoom in on the barcode, and adjust the screen's brightness. If your mobile device allows, save your ticket as a PDF.
When you bring that Fast Track Ticket on paper or on your mobile device, a Bonfils donor tech will check your blood pressure and other vital signs, then review your answers and ask any necessary follow-up questions, speeding up the registration process and getting you to a donor chair faster.
Don't have a mobile device or computer printer? No problem! You can fill out the questionnaire at your donation location on one of our computers once you arrive.
Remember, the first day Fast Track Health History will be active for Bonfils donors to use the day of their donation is Sunday, June 24, but feel free to check it out now and see how Fast Track works:
