MONROVIA, Calif. — Stayhealthy on Wednesday announced the completion of its deployment of Stayhealthy HealthCENTER Kiosks in six states throughout the Supervalu chain of supermarkets and pharmacies. Supervalu, which operates Cub, Farm Fresh, Shoppers and Shop ‘n Save, is now home to Stayhealthy’s FDA-cleared, self-monitoring HealthCENTERs that provide clinical-grade health screenings free of charge, the company stated.
Screenings include 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 meaningful trending of blood-glucose levels over time and allowing users to share their results with their local pharmacist or physician if they so choose.
Supervalu 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.
“The flexibility of this Internet, consumer-based system, allows users to record assessments on any HealthCENTER and both record assessments and access their Stayhealthy health and fitness record from any Internet-connected device and sets the stage for the future of health care in this country," stated John Collins, Stayhealthy CEO.
The inclusion of Supervalu to the existing online network of Stayhealthy HealthCENTERs increases the total number of publically accessible free-of-charge health screening opportunities to more than 3,500 locations across the United States and Canada. The online network currently is experiencing an average of 2.5 million tests per month, a statistic that has been on the rise and is predicted to reach 3 million sessions per month sometime this summer, the company projected.
