Health kiosk company SoloHealth has changed its name to Pursuant Health and raised $2.4 million in equity and securities, according to an SEC filing. Per the company’s website, the name change reflects a new partnership with Cleveland Clinic Wellness, which the company embarked on at the end of March. This will add a workplace wellness business to the company’s existing public kiosk business.
SoloHealth takes on new name and new investors. The big differentiator for Pursuant is the Vision Testing module. That’s mechanically more complex and adds cost.

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.
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.”
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.
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.
