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.
