The new “Swipe to Donate Life” technology will make registering as an organ, eye and tissue donor as easy as the swipe of a driver’s license.
Ohio is only the second state in the nation to be able to register donors directly from their drivers licenses through this app. Thanks to the Second Chance Trust Fund, each of Ohio’s organ procurement organizations, which promote and facilitate the donation process, received iPads and card readers to implement this new technology.
We put the technology to the test, and here is how it works:
People can still register at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) or at www.lifeconnection.org, but this new option will expedite the registration process at public education events, as paper forms no longer need to be filled out and mailed to the BMV.
We hope the Swipe to Donate Life technology helps increase the number of lives forever changed through organ, eye and tissue donation.
