The “Swipe to Donate Life” app lets individuals scan their driver’s license, which then auto-populates the donor registration form. Once the form is complete, the registrant affirms their decision and sends the information directly to the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
Ohio is one of two states that use this type of technology – Arizona also uses a similar card reading system.
Representatives from Lifeline of Ohio and Donate Life Ohio will use the app at upcoming community events. This new technology will help them expedite the registration process and encourage more people to register as organ, eye and tissue donors.
