Miller-Keystone Blood Center picks BIO-key for donor identification

Categories Biometrics News

BIO-key International has announced that the Miller-Keystone Blood Center has selected BIO-key’s TruDonor system to enhance security and donor identification at its centers across Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

BIO-key’s TruDonor system is aimed at blood donation centers and is a system for donor identification, which uses a fingerprint reader for enrollment. Miller-Keystone Blood Center serves as the only blood provider to 25 hospitals in Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Chester, Lehigh, Luzerne, Montgomery, Northampton, Philadelphia and Schuylkill, Pennsylvania as well as Hunterdon and Warren, New Jersey.

“We are thrilled to welcome Miller-Keystone to our growing family of blood center customers,” Jim Sullivan, BIO-key Vice President of Strategy and Business Development said. “By leveraging BIO-key to automate the positive ID of their donors and detect duplicate donor records before they are created, they have enhanced the safety and security of the donor collection process, while reducing donor check-in to a two-second operation at their registration desk. The payback is immediate and ongoing.”

Reported previously, BIO-key International boasted over $1 million in order from healthcare technology providers and blood centers in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Last month, BIO-key International achieved CA validation status for its BIO-key ID Director for CA SiteMinder.

“BIO-key is the leading provider of innovative, cost efficient donor ID solutions for blood centers and transfusion facilities,” Mike DePasquale, CEO said. “We have deployed over three million donor identification licenses across our blood center customers to meet the FDA’s strict requirement for positive identification. Our solutions make the donor experience simple and easy while increasing the safety of our nation’s blood supply. BIO-key’s experience in this significant market demonstrates our ability to deliver robust patient ID solutions for our hospital customers as that demand emerges,”
