The patient check-in kiosk increases efficiency and patient satisfaction in emergency departments, waiting rooms and ambulatory settings by expediting the patient identification process, capturing patient insurance information and overall improving the patient experience. Patients can easily check-in and out, perform payment transactions, confirm insurance information, electronically sign documents and get help with wayfinding through medical facilities.  In senior housing the check-in kiosk is used for educating patients on drug regimens as well as monitoring basic health conditions. Telemedicine kiosks are available.

High-tech light therapy kiosk aims to combat Vitamin D deficiency, launches with clinical trials –

Vitamin D deficiency is one of most common health problems in the United States. Studies have found that as many as three-fourths of teens and adults in the U.S. may not be getting enough of the vitamin. Seattle-based startup Solius is working to combat that problem with a light therapy kiosk that…

Source: www.geekwire.com

The company enrolled 150 people in its initial clinical trial in the Seattle area, a step that is required before the device can be submitted for approval to the FDA. One kiosk in the trial was placed on Bainbridge Island, a 30-minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle, and another was placed at Joint Base Lewis-McCord, where Solius is working with the military on a clinical trial about war fighter readiness.

 

Hennessey said that the company didn’t seek out those with a vitamin D deficiency to take part in the trial. Rather, the company wanted to see who would self-refer to use the Solius device.

 

The user experience is entirely self-serve, though Hennessey said the company places the kiosks in areas like care centers where medical staff is nearby.

 We’re doing something that we believe will be better than any pharmaceutical drug, and we believe it’s the future of medicine.

Because the Solius is regulated as a non-invasive medical device, the process for FDA approval is more relaxed than for a pharmaceutical drug. Solius is not conducting a randomized clinical trial to test the device’s effectiveness, for example, something most drugs must go through before they reach the market.

HealthSpot assets snapped up by former customer Rite Aid for $1.15M

Retail pharmacy chain Rite Aid has purchased the assets of shuttered telemedicine kiosk company HealthSpot at auction for $1.15 million, according to MedCity News.

Source: mobihealthnews.com

The future of telehealth for Rite Aid is uncertain because the future of Rite Aid is uncertain. Last October Walgreen said they would acquire Rite Aid. But the FTC has not okayed that merger.

 

The merger result would have a 46.5 percent market, compared to CVS’s 30 percent. The FTC recently killed the proposed Staples-Office Depot merger. 

 

Note that Higi, another kiosk company, also works with Rite Aid. Higi is to install +4,000 kiosks to Rite Aid stores — much bigger than company ever had with HealthSpot.

Montco gets five MindKare Behavioral Health Kiosks

The MindKare kiosk is a freestanding computer station with an interactive display screen that provides users with a quick and easy way to check on their mental and behavioral health. The kiosk asks users to take an online self-assessment, and provides information on mental and behavioral health conditions along with resources for local treatment options. The kiosk screens for conditions such as anxiety, depression and substance abuse.

Source: www.bizjournals.com

The HealthSpark Foundation, which formerly operated as the North Penn Community Health Foundation based in Colmar, Pa., is providing about $60,000 for the purchase, installation and related training for MindKare kiosks at five locations in Montgomery County. HealthSpark launched the initiative in a partnership with Screening for Mental Health Inc., a nonprofit organization based in Wellesley Hills, Mass., and the Philadelphia-based Thomas Scattergood Behavioral Health Foundation.

 

Russell Johnson, Spark Foundation’s president and CEO, said too often health assessment by primary-care doctors focuses on the neck down.

 

“There another part of the body that needs attention as well,” he said. “We know that early intervention for mental and behavioral health disorders is critical.”

Kaiser Permanente Health Center Puts Patients First

Kaiser Permanente CEO Bernard Tyson is rolling out his vision for the future of American health care in a series of new California clinics.

Source: www.fastcoexist.com

Nice read on new Kaiser user experience. Reminds me of new Centura hospital which just went in around the corner from me here in Denver.

 

The experience starts with the waiting rooms, which take their cues from retail and hospitality. At the Manhattan Beach outpost, the vibe is warm, West Coast modernism: There’s lots of wood, natural light, and inviting touches, such as a living wall of green plants. A pair of ATM–like kiosks near the front door allow members to check themselves in if they prefer not to wait for the tablet-wielding receptionist. They receive a text alert when the doctor is ready.

 

Kaiser’s new spaces are also about keeping costs low: They are designed to be more efficient at serving patients. The first 10 hubs are projected to boost the number of face-to-face visits per exam room by between 20% and 40% and to deliver overall square-footage cost savings of 10%, thanks to space-conscious floor plans, redesigned collaborative work flows, and investments in new technologies.
