Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 09, 2013
SoloHealth®, a consumer-driven healthcare technology company, and the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), have announced a co-partnership to help promote awareness and information around the new Health Insurance Marketplace and HealthCare.gov. The educational content began running last week across SoloHealth’s network of more than 3,200 consumer digital kiosks located in select Walmart, Sam’s Club and Safeway stores across the nation. The SoloHealth Stations average more than 130,000 consumers per day each spending approximately 4.5 minutes per session. To date, the Stations have garnered more than 30 million consumer engagements.
“Champion organizations, like SoloHealth, are already serving people and are a trusted source of information in communities across the county,” said Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Director of Communications Julie Bataille. “These organizations are natural places for people to learn about the Marketplace, and we want to make sure that they have access to the tools and information to respond to people who want to sign up and enroll for coverage on October 1.”
“We are excited to partner with HHS and help share informative and valuable information about the upcoming Healthcare Insurance Marketplace so consumers understand their options and can take action,” said Bart Foster, CEO & Founder of SoloHealth. “Our SoloHealth Stations are a prime vehicle to reach and engage with consumers when health is top-of-mind—with millions of consumers spending an average of 4.5 minutes with the Station each visit. We are connecting daily with the target audience at high-traffic retail locations where they are frequenting and getting high engagement results.”
The SoloHealth Station, an FDA-cleared, HIPAA compliant and patented technology, provides consumers with a digital, self-service healthcare platform that includes free health and wellness services, biometric screenings, health risk assessments and information. The Station delivers marketing and educational content via onscreen interaction, banners, videos and digital signage.
