Donor QuickPass FAQs
What is Donor QuickPass?
Donor QuickPass is a web-based, computer-assisted self-interview program that allows blood donors like you to answer required health history questions independently, in a private setting at a time that’s convenient for you on the day of your donation.
How does it work?
You can access Donor QuickPass from suncoastblood.org on the day of your donation. Using this web-based format—accessible from any computer with internet access—you can answer health history questions confidentially, print out a bar-coded receipt that contains your hidden responses, and bring it with you to your donation appointment. If you do not have access to a printer, you can email the barcode to yourself and bring your mobile device with you when you donate.
How far in advance can I complete my Donor QuickPass?
You can only complete your health history questions on the same day of your blood donation. Online interviews completed before 12:00 AM on donation day will be invalid, and you will have to repeat the interview at the time of your donation.
What are the benefits of using Donor QuickPass?
Because you will have already completed your required health history questions before your donation, the process will potentially be shortened. As a result, you will spend less time away from work and other commitments.
Are the responses kept confidential?
Yes, your name is the only personal information printed on your donor receipt. In addition, Donor QuickPass is designed to timeout after a period of inactivity so no one can access your confidential health history responses.
Does Donor QuickPass determine my eligibility to donate?
No, Donor QuickPass does not determine your eligibility to donate; that will be done at the time of your donation.
Is Donor QuickPass the same as a donation appointment?
A Donor QuickPass is not the same as making an appointment to donate. If you would like to schedule an appointment either at a blood drive or donor center, please visit suncoastblood.org for blood drive and donor center locations and hours.
What equipment is needed?
You’ll need high-speed internet access. A high-quality laser printer and paper are also recommended. Some inkjet printers may not provide a high enough quality barcode for the scanners to read.
What are the technical requirements and limitations?
- Donor QuickPass has been shown to work with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
- Donor QuickPass is compatible with Windows and Mac OS X.
- Donor QuickPass has been shown to work on Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.
- Donor QuickPass requires Adobe Reader.
- Donor QuickPass is supported on Android or Apple iOS mobile devices.
- Upon completing your Donor QuickPass online, you can email yourself a receipt and display it on your mobile device at your appointment.
- SunCoast Blood Centers cannot provide technical support outside our network boundaries. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
We appreciate your patience while we continue to expand our Donor QuickPass system. SunCoast Blood Centers strives to provide the latest technology capabilities to our donors and is diligently continuing to improve upon our technical systems.
What if I can’t access Donor QuickPass from my work computer?
SunCoast Blood Centers makes the Donor QuickPass available securely through standard protocols to all internet users. However, access to it may be restricted on some employers’ or service providers’ networks for reasons of their own. If you have difficulty accessing or completing the Donor QuickPass, please contact the technical support team at your organization. SunCoast Blood Centers cannot provide technical support outside our network boundaries.
Will I have to answer the questions again when I arrive to donate?
Typically not. A SunCoast Blood Centers staff member will scan your Donor QuickPass donor receipt and review your responses. In rare instances, you may have to answer the questions again at the time of donation if:
- Your donor receipt is lost, or the scanner cannot read the bar code on the receipt.
- Donor QuickPass is not completed on the same day as your blood donation.
- If computer systems are down at the time of your donation.
What if I answer a question incorrectly?
You will have the opportunity to go back and correct your answers at any time during the interview process by selecting the “Review Answers” button. If you have already completed the interview and printed your Donor QuickPass donor receipt, you should notify a SunCoast Blood Centers staff member of your desire to change an answer.
What if I’m not sure how to answer a question?
Using Donor QuickPass, you can skip a question and review it with a Donor Specialist at the time of your donation.
Am I required to answer all the questions?
No. You will continue to have the option to complete your health history interview one-to-one with a Donor Specialist at the time of your donation.
Does Donor QuickPass ask different questions than a typical health history?
No. All blood donors are asked the same required health history questions—regardless of the format used to answer them.
What if I lose my barcode receipt?
Please print, save, or email your barcode receipt to yourself. If you lose your barcode receipt, you will need to complete a new health history questionnaire, either online or at the donation site.
What if I cannot donate after I have completed the Donor QuickPass?
SunCoast Blood Centers realizes our donors sometimes face scheduling issues that can interfere with their planned donation. However, because your interview responses must be answered on the day of your donation, you will need to answer them again if you reschedule your donation for another day.
Why do I have to answer questions every time I donate?
All donors complete a new health history interview before each donation as a safety measure for both the recipient and the donor.
