Shoppers nationwide will have access to quick, easy and free health assessments and information as SoloHealth begins rolling out thousands of high-tech, self-service consumer health care kiosks at retailers nationwide with the help of NCR Corporation. NCR’s services group has signed a three-year agreement with SoloHealth to provide on-site repair services after the units are installed, expected to be in more than 2,500 retail locations by mid-2013.
NCR’s services expertise and national footprint are crucial to keeping the SoloHealth kiosks up and running for the shoppers who come to count on the innovative devices for health care information and for retailers counting on the devices to serve their shoppers and drive additional store traffic.
The agreement covers service of thousands of SoloHealth Stations, which will be deployed in mass merchant, drug and grocery retailers across the country.
The SoloHealth Station offers a variety of health screenings, including vision, blood pressure, weight, symptoms checking, body mass index and an overall health assessment. The kiosk also provides and connects users with a database of local doctors.
Early results show strong demand for these kiosks, with more than 3.2 million consumer interactions at already-installed kiosks as of mid-October of this year. Users spend an average of four minutes at the kiosks and 33 percent of users take more than one test, according to SoloHealth figures.
