ATLANTA — SoloHealth announced that the number of consumer interactions made at its SoloHealth Station health-and-wellness kiosks has surpassed 2.5 million.
The data — which have been compiled since January 2011 across approximately 200 kiosks currently in select Walmart, Safeway, Publix, CVS, Sam’s Club and Schnuck's Markets locations — also included the following results:
Each consumer spends an average of four minutes per session with the kiosk;
Approximately 33% of users took more than one test, with blood pressure and BMI being the most frequent combination;
57% of consumers tested for blood pressure, the most widely-used single test;
Saturdays drove 19% more users than other days;
65% of male and female users are 35 and older;
71% of SoloHealth Station users that are at medium to high risk of hypertension;
51% of SoloHealth Station users that are overweight to obese;
25% of consumers are returning users; and
The satisfaction rating on accuracy of results, length of the experience and likelihood to use again stood at 95%.
SoloHealth, which recently announced strategic investments and partnerships with WellPoint and Dell, is expected to tout 2,500 kiosks by mid-2013.
"We believe that awareness and education are keys to a healthy lifestyle, and we're bringing a free and comprehensive self-service technology to neighborhood retail locations nationwide," said SoloHealth founder and CEO Bart Foster said. "The data has revealed strong consumer engagement rates, even surpassing our original predictions, clearly showing there is an interest and need for this type of access in today’s healthcare environment. We are extremely bullish as we prepare for our nationwide rollout with our retail partners."
