Stayhealthy installs kiosks across Albertson's LLC and New Albertson's Inc. network

MONROVIA, Calif. — Stayhealthy has announced the completion of its deployment of 765 Stayhealthy HealthCenter Kiosks throughout Albertson’s LLC and New Albertson’s Inc.

New Albertson’s Inc. operates Jewel-Osco, Acme Markets, Shaw’s and Star Markets. Stayhealthy’s FDA-cleared, self-monitoring HealthCenters provide health screenings free of charge to check blood pressure, heart rate, total body composition (i.e., percent lean mass, percent body fat and hydration index), total body weight/BMI and vision (i.e., color blindness). The HealthCenters also support the uploading of readings taken from personal blood-glucose meters, enabling trending of blood-glucose levels over time and allowing users to share their results with their local pharmacist or physician if they so choose.

Albertsons and NAI customers who register at a HealthCenter with their own unique user ID and password will have the added benefit of tracking and trending their personal screening results over time in their own Stayhealthy electronic Personalized Health and Fitness Record, which is accessible from any Internet-connected computer or mobile device.

“Both Stayhealthy and Albertsons share in the desire to deliver health-and-wellness initiatives aimed at improving the health of individuals between visits with our pharmacists and their regularly scheduled visits with their doctors. This unique and valuable tool will enable our customers to monitor and track their biometric health screening results with much more accuracy and detail than they’re able to do at home,” said Dan Salemi, president of NAI’s pharmacy operations. “Stayhealthy was selected because of their clinical expertise and reputation for delivering high-quality, clinical-grade health solutions and wellness services.”

“Stayhealthy is very pleased to partner with Albertson’s, which has demonstrated their commitment to supporting valuable health improvement programs within their communities,” said Tommy Thompson, former U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, former governor of Wisconsin, and current chairman of Stayhealthy. “This partnership will provide access to free health monitoring to millions of Americans. This retailer, like many across the nation, are providing citizens with an invaluable service, which will go a long way towards shifting the tide we currently see with rising chronic illnesses across the country.”

“Stayhealthy, like Albertson’s, is committed to providing convenient access to health assessments, which allow individuals to accurately measure, monitor and improve overall wellbeing whether at work, at home or on the run. Albertson’s decision to place HealthCenters in their stores shows their commitment to customer wellness, at a time when access to affordable health care remains a challenge for a large portion of the population,” said John Collins, CEO of Stayhealthy. “The ability for users to record assessments free of charge at their local market and both record assessments and access historical biometric data from any Internet-connected device is a blueprint for the future of health care in this country.”
