Infotech Lead America: SoloHealth, a healthcare technology company, has entered into a partnership to utilize Dell’s OEM Solutions technology for its SoloHealth Station consumer kiosk.
Dell will deliver thousands of SoloHealth Station kiosks to retail locations nationwide beginning this fall.
The SoloHealth Station, a wellness screening kiosk for consumers, provides health screenings for vision, blood pressure, weight, body mass index, and overall health assessment free of charge. For consumers who want to review their assessment with a medical professional, SoloHealth can connect consumers to local professionals through their databases.
“By providing SoloHealth with a single source for the financing, hardware and deployment of its kiosk, we give them the reliability and flexibility to expand into new opportunities,” said Joyce Mullen, vice president and general manager, OEM Solutions and Global Alliances, Dell.
“Dell is a perennial brand and leader in technology solutions and innovation, and this partnership will allow us to produce and deliver the most innovative and comprehensive consumer health and wellness kiosk available to thousands of retail locations nationwide,” said Bart Foster, CEO & founder of SoloHealth.
In 2010, SoloHealth received a $1.2 million grant from the National Institute of Health (NIH), a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, to help enable innovation for self-service healthcare and prevention.
In 2011, SoloHealth announced its kiosk, the SoloHealth Station, offering vision, blood pressure, weight, symptoms checking, body mass index, overall health assessment; and access to a database of local doctors.
