SoloHealth, a healthcare technology company based in Duluth, Georgia, announced last week that it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for its SoloHealth Station, a free interactive kiosk that provides users with comprehensive health assessments.
The company hopes to roll out thousands of the kiosks, which can assess a user’s vision, blood pressure, weight and body mass index, in high-traffic retail locations like pharmacies and grocery stores by the end of the year.
Following a basic 10-minute assessment, patients can use the bilingual kiosk’s touchscreen to find and contact local doctor’s offices and schedule appointments. Patients can also create an account with the SoloHealth Station, allowing them to track their health over time. The accounts can be accessed on any station nationwide and through an online web portal.
SoloHealth, which has received investments from Coinstar, Inc. also hopes to offer marketing opportunities to its brand partners.
A health care consumer engagement platform, the SoloHealth Station offers highly personalized, targeted and interactive opportunities for consumers, advertisers and retailers by placing kiosks in high-traffic retail locations and offering integration across a multi-platform ecosystem complete with digital signage, Internet, mobile and social media. The multiple-platform approach gives brand partners, consumers and medical professionals the ease of interaction from many touch points allowing for greater effectiveness and efficiencies
The company is expected to announce its retail partnerships within the next month.
