AMA decided to take action and incorporate VinDec’s biometric identification software to accurately track and monitor patients and curtail infectious diseases from tainting the blood supply. With thousands of donors now registered in the registry, AMA workers can now flag professional donor files in the computer database which will permanently disable the donor’s profile based on biometric identification and alert other AMA staff to reject them on any repeated attempts to donate.
If a healthy donor undergoes biometric identification and their donation form is accepted but then decides to send a proxy donor for a future donation, individual biometric identification is used to verify donor identity and will raise an alert the donor is different than the profile stored in the patient database.
If a donor comes in to AMA that has been flagged for a disease as a result of an earlier donation, the biometric identification system will reject the donor the next time they come in to donate. Changes in AMA’s staff no longer mean that a flagged donor can come back after a shift change and lie about their medical condition.
