Those sit-down-and-get-checked health kiosks you see in grocery and drug stores are becoming a thing.
SoloHealth‘s says its brand of the health kiosks are being used by 130,000 people every day. The kiosks are in 3,500 Walmart, Sam’s Club, and Safeway stores.
And now, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing, the company is raising another $15 million to add to the roughly $26 million its raised so far. The company has already raised $4.3 million, with more than $10 million to go.
SoloHealth is backed by WellPoint, Novartis, Dell, and Coinstar.
One new investor has already jumped in on this new round — Walter Huff, founder of the late, great health informatics company HBO & Company (acquired by McKesson).
SoloHealth’s unwieldy-looking kiosks measure the user’s blood pressure, vision, weight, and body mass index. The data is stored in the company’s cloud, and can be accessed online by the user.
The Atlanta-based company didn’t respond to requests for further information.
