ATLANTA — SoloHealth on Friday announced the company was awarded with Intel’s information technology healthcare award, the “Intel Innovation Award,” during the 2011 Health IT Leadership Summit that took place earlier this week in Atlanta.
SoloHealth was recognized for its next-generation health-and-wellness kiosk, the SoloHealth Station. “It was a very tough decision for the judges, as all four finalists were extremely qualified and deserving,” stated Jared Quoyeser, director of healthcare marketing for Intel Americas. “But ultimately our panel of judges selected SoloHealth because of its unique and impactful SoloHealth Station platform, which offers a solution that most efficiently and effectively helps combat the issues and problems facing our health delivery process, as well as access and engagement for consumers, medical professionals, businesses and our entire healthcare system.”
Currently in select U.S. test markets and retail locations, SoloHealth’s next-generation, comprehensive SoloHealth Station provides screenings for vision, blood pressure, weight and body mass index, and an overall health assessment free of charge. SoloHealth also partners with local health systems and physicians in each market and connects consumers to a database of local professionals, helping to facilitate people into action. The company plans to provide highly personalized and interactive healthcare opportunities for consumers, advertisers and retailers by placing kiosks in high-traffic retail locations.
A cloud-based platform, the SoloHealth Station will provide users with a multiplatform ecosystem to access and interact with data through the kiosks at retail locations, online/digital, mobile and emerging platforms.
