NCR Partners With SoloHealth To Service Interactive Consumer Healthcare Kiosks At Retailers Nationwide

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 healthcare kiosks at retailers nationwide with the help of NCR Corporation (NYSE:NCR). 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 healthcare 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% of users take more than one test, according to SoloHealth figures.

A cloud-based healthcare consumer platform, the SoloHealth Station offers highly personalized, targeted and interactive opportunities for consumers, advertisers and retailers by placing kiosks in high-traffic retail locations and offering integration across a multi-platform complete with digital signage, Internet and mobile. The multiple-platform approach gives brand partners, consumers and medical professionals the ease of interaction from many touch points allowing for greater effectiveness and efficiencies.

“With healthcare such a vital and hot topic, NCR is very excited to be working with SoloHealth to make an easy-to-use health monitoring and assessment solution available to thousands of Americans and keep these thousands of innovative devices up and running for retailers looking to drive store traffic and build shopper loyalty,” said Vice President of NCR Retail Sales Bill Barton.
