ATLANTA — A former employee of health insurer Aetna has been hired to direct business strategies for a maker of health kiosks.
SoloHealth announced Thursday the appointment of Ryan Sloan as director of business development, following his 12-year stint at Aetna. At SoloHealth, Sloan will focus on expanding the company across the health services and insurance fields, corporate worksite strategy and exploring new business, reporting to EVP and chief commercial officer Stephen Kendig.
SoloHealth operates its kiosk, the SoloHealth Station, at several retailers around the country and expects to have the kiosks in 5,500 locations by early 2014, including Walmart, Sam's Club, Safeway and Schnuck Markets.
"Ryan brings tremendous experience across all facets of the managed care side of the business that will prove advantageous to our company and partners as we continue to rapidly scale our platform nationally and explore other strategic opportunities," Kendig said. "We expect 2013 to be a pivotal year for us across all aspects of our business, and Ryan will help us [innovate] and drive growth across the evolving healthcare services space."
