Health solutions provider Stayhealthy Inc. has selected Montréal-based BroadSign International LLC as its digital signage software provider for deployment of its network of HealthCENTER kiosks across the United States.
The initial, completed deployment of approximately 2,000 kiosks includes Kroger grocery stores where the self-service, health screening kiosks are situated in waiting areas of in-store pharmacies. The plug-and-play kiosks are FDA-cleared and offer convenient, easy-to-use, clinical-grade health screenings. Consumers can measure key health indicators including blood pressure, heart rate, total body weight, total body composition (lean mass, body fat and hydration index), vision (color blindness) and BMI. Consumers may also upload personal blood glucose meter and activity monitor data to track their personal results over time to assist in improving health.
According to Stayhealthy, its new generation of health screening kiosks are the nation's first and currently only available platform that connects health screening kiosks with Class II medical devices and digital activity monitors united by a secure, HIPAA-compliant online portal installed in more than 3,000 professional, medical offices involved in wellness and weight loss programs around the world.
The deployment of the Stayhealthy HealthCENTER Kiosk Network offers consumers the convenience of accurate, self-service measuring of key health indicators at no charge as they shop. Users may also register at the kiosk and receive access to their own personal, Stayhealthy online health record account (Stayhealthy Dashboard) to automatically track and monitor their results from any web access location, 24/7.
"With access to affordable healthcare remaining a challenge for a large portion of the population, Stayhealthy is addressing the need by offering an easy-to-use and convenient solution to empower and engage consumers to securely and accurately measure and monitor key health indicators to improve their health," said John Collins, chief executive officer of Monrovia, Calif.-based Stayhealthy. "We are excited to engage BroadSign as our premier platform provider to manage both our rapid content deployment and complex network operations. We appreciate that BroadSign brings robust functionality, flexibility and support to Stayhealthy's HealthCENTER Kiosk Network."
Stayhealthy's primary mission is to increase consumer access to convenient and accurate health screenings and solutions. Employers, provider groups and public health organizations share a vested interest in connecting with these communities. The Stayhealthy network of health screening kiosks will be funded in part by revenues received from digital advertising and health-related messaging played on the touchscreen and optional 32-inch HD LCD display while consumers wait between health screenings. This dwell time offers opportunities for marketers, especially those in health categories, to participate.
