ATLANTA — SoloHealth has more than doubled the number of retail locations featuring a SoloHealth Station digital health and wellness kiosk to more than 2,000 locations over the past three months, the healthcare technology company announced Wednesday. SoloHealth plans to have more than 3,500 health and wellness kiosks installed by the end of the year.
“We are thrilled to be expanding our free healthcare access platform, the SoloHealth Station, providing more Americans access to free health and wellness services, tools and information,” stated SoloHealth CEO Bart Foster. “By end of March, we will be within a 10 minute drive time of 48% of the U.S. population," he said. "As we grow, we are exploring many new ways we can leverage our versatile platform to continue to help better our nation’s health and healthcare system, especially as the country prepares for the Affordable Care Act rollout.”
The SoloHealth Stations are being used by more than 2.5 million people each month and they have been running at 98% uptime. To date, more than 9 million consumers have interacted with the kiosk, up from 2.5 million in late August. Additionally, daily consumer usage has increased going from 10,000 per day at the end of August to approximately 85,000.
Approximately 33% of users took more than one test, with blood pressure and BMI being the highest combination, and one-out-of-four users make a repeat visit to the kiosk. Saturdays drive 19% more users than other days, SoloHealth reported.
The SoloHealth Station is currently in select retailers including Walmart, Sam’s Club, Safeway and Schnuck’s Markets.
