- SoloHealth’s health & wellness kiosks provide comprehensive health screenings
- Dell OEM Solutions to produce kiosks for nationwide rollout
|SoloHealth®, a leading consumer-driven healthcare technology company, announced today it has entered a strategic partnership to utilize Dell’s OEM Solutions technology, development and deployment expertise for its next-generation SoloHealth Station™ consumer kiosk. Under terms of the partnership, Dell will produce and deliver thousands of SoloHealth Station kiosks to retail locations nationwide beginning this fall.|
The SoloHealth Station is an interactive, comprehensive health and wellness screening kiosk for consumers placed in high-traffic retail locations or strategic, high-volume places like corporate campuses or hospitals. The SoloHealth Station provides health screenings for vision, blood pressure, weight, and body mass index, a symptom checker as well as an overall health assessment free of charge. For consumers who want to review their assessment with a medical professional, SoloHealth can connect consumers to local professionals through their databases, helping people enter the most appropriate and accurate point in the health care system.
"We’re pleased to help SoloHealth bring their innovative kiosks to the public and empower consumers to take control of their health,” said Joyce Mullen, vice president and general manager, OEM Solutions and Global Alliances, at Dell. “By providing SoloHealth with a single source for the financing, hardware and deployment of its kiosk, we give them the reliability and flexibility to expand into new opportunities."
“Dell is a perennial brand and leader in technology solutions and innovation and this partnership will allow us to produce and deliver the most innovative and comprehensive consumer health and wellness kiosk available to thousands of retails locations nationwide,” said Bart Foster, CEO & Founder of SoloHealth. “We strive daily to deliver a superior product and service and this partnership with Dell allows us to continue on that promise.”
Based in Atlanta, Ga., SoloHealth® is a leader in self-service consumer healthcare, utilizing patented technology to deploy interactive health screening kiosks to empower consumers about their health through awareness, education and convenience. The company’s award-winning first offering was the EyeSite Vision kiosk. In summer 2010, the company received a $1.2 M grant from the National Institute of Health (NIH), a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, to help enable innovation for self-service healthcare and prevention. In 2011, SoloHealth announced its next-generation kiosk, the SoloHealth Station, offering vision, blood pressure, weight, symptoms checking, body mass index, overall health assessment; and access to a database of local doctors. The company’s bilingual kiosks provide free health screenings and recommendations for follow-up care, which leads to prevention and lower health care costs. In March 2011, Coinstar, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSTR), owner of Redbox, made a financial investment in SoloHealth. For more information, visit www.solohealth.com.
