Software Update Includes Enhancements for Internet Donor History Questionnaire and Macopharma External Device Interface
IT Synergistics has released a software update for its bexWISE™ blood establishment computer system (BECS) that includes improvements to bexWISE XPress, the Internet-based donor history questionnaire, and the third-party blood collection Macopharma interface.
bexWISE XPress now supports the generation of two-dimensional (2D) barcodes. 2D barcodes are used in the Internet questionnaire and hold a substantial amount of donor information. Enhancement for the Internet-based questionnaire allows the generation of three different barcode formats for the Donor Pass: QR Code, PDF417, and Code 128 (original Donor Pass format). Upon successful completion of the questionnaire, the Donor Pass barcode displays and the donor can print or email the barcode image (in the format used by the blood center) for presentation at the collection site.
Along with other minor changes, bexWISE XPress has been updated to provide support for displaying donor aid attachments for a question on a tablet or mobile device operating on either the Android or Apple platform.
In an effort to continually support the client’s changing infrastructure and needs, the release of v29.05 also includes anticipated improvements to the Macopharma interface (for Macomix external phlebotomy devices used to capture data during donation). Enhancements to the bidirectional interface have been added to support additional data fields and the latest file format.
“Having the ability to generate 2D barcodes improves the efficiency for those taking the donor history questionnaire at their home,” said Tim Bryant, Managing Director of IT Synergistics. “And, we’re always striving to meet the needs of our customers by providing an interface to the equipment they use.”
bexWISE Software Release 29.05 (v2.0.29.05) was released November 21, 2018.
