For the First Time, Blood Donors May Answer Their Health History Questions Online From the Privacy of Their Home or Office
Date:10/19/2009

VIENNA, Va., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Blood donation just got easier at three community blood centers, West Tennessee Regional Blood Center, Jackson, TN, Virginia Blood Services, Richmond, VA and Rock River Valley Blood Center, Rockford, IL, with the recent implementation of the Internet Quality Donor System(TM) (iQDS) by Talisman Ltd. of Vienna, Virginia. Talisman President Paul D. Cumming, MBA/PhD states that centers that use the Quality Donor System(TM) (QDS) are now able to allow their blood donors to respond to the same health history questions online with iQDS in the privacy and convenience of their home or office instead of when they come into the blood donor center. While the donor must complete the questionnaire on the day of donation, they may do it at their convenience instead of doing it at the blood drive. The prospective donor prints out a bar coded Donor Receipt, much like an airline boarding pass, and present this to the staff when they arrival at the blood center. The center staff scans the bar coded receipt and asks any follow up questions deemed necessary. It is anticipated this will save over 10 minutes per donation. That is a reduction of up to 20% of the time at the donor center. iQDS was cleared for use with blood donors by the Food and Drug Administration in the Fall of 2007 and is the only such online system currently operational in the US.

iQDS employs audio-visual technology in the form of voices, colors, pictures and maps to improve comprehension in the conduct of donor self-interviews. Because potential blood donors interact directly with the computer in total privacy, they feel more comfortable and answer personal risky behavior questions more candidly as has been documented in peer review scientific journals. The system allows donors to complete the interview at their own pace, and also gives them a mechanism to ask questions.

Talisman has pioneered development of automated multimedia blood donor screeni
