SoloHealth and Safeway Inc., one of the largest food and drug retailers in North America with 1,644 stores in the United States and western Canada, have signed a multiyear deal to roll out the SoloHealth Station kiosk to almost 700 Safeway stores nationwide.
Installation of the SoloHealth Stations will start this April, giving Safeway's customers access to free health screenings, personalized assessments and valuable health information. The new service complements the comprehensive health and wellness services Safeway already offers customers.
"Safeway shares our commitment of empowering consumers to take charge of their health," said Stephen Kendig, CCO & EVP of SoloHealth, Atlanta. "We believe that access, awareness and education are keys to a healthy lifestyle, and we're bringing comprehensive health and wellness services directly to Safeway's customers. We look forward to working closely with Safeway to ensure we are always offering the most valuable tools that can lead to healthier and happier lifestyles for their growing customer base."
To date, more than 10 million consumers, averaging more than 4.5 minutes per session, have interacted with SoloHealth Stations, which are currently located in nearly 2,500 retail locations nationwide, expanding to more than 4,000 by 2014, the company said.
The SoloHealth Station is a bilingual healthcare access platform for consumers providing screenings for vision, blood pressure, weight and body mass index, a symptom checker as well as an overall health assessment — free of charge. Additionally, the Station serves as a valuable resource to provide health and wellness information and services, offering a convenient, user-friendly platform to make health information and data easy to access, inform, store and share, the company said.
The Station offers highly personalized, targeted and interactive opportunities for consumers, advertisers and retailers by placing kiosks in high-traffic retail locations. The SoloHealth Station is backed by technology that allows for flexibility to make changes remotely and quickly so the company can continue to expand the services offered to consumers and advertising partners.
