SoloHealth's Station Kiosk Approved: Awareness Drives Action with New Self-Service Solution to Healthcare
On June 5, SoloHealth announced that FDA approved its next-generation SoloHealth Station, a self-service health care device which strives to assist people with both education and awareness about their health. SoloHealth, an Atlanta-based company, has worked to empower consumers through the use of technology to achieve a healthier, and consequently better, America. With the recent FDA approval and an aggressive rollout plan for 2012, the SoloHealth Station is taking the lead in using self-service technology to develop a healthier America.
Just prior to receiving the inaugural Intel Innovation Award, CEO and Founder of SoloHealth, Bart Foster, described the SoloHealth Station as a kiosk equipped with both the "functionality and technology to drive consumer education, awareness, and ultimately action." SoloHealth makes clear that the kiosk will not replace an examination by a medical professional. Essentially, the SoloHealth Station will provide consumers with an initial health screening and encourage them to visit a health care provider for a follow-up examination.
The SoloHealth Station offers a highly personalized, targeted, and interactive opportunity for consumers by employing a touch user interface and interactive video to guide consumers through the simple health tests. It will allow consumers to screen their vision, blood pressure, weight, and body mass index in less than seven minutes. In addition, the SoloHealth Station will provide a symptom checker as well as an overall health assessment. These services are provided free of charge.
