LIGHTNING RELEASES — MONROVIA, CA (April 2, 2014) – Stayhealthy, Inc. announced the completion of its deployment of Stayhealthy® HealthCENTER Kiosks™ in 6 states throughout SUPERVALU chain of supermarkets and pharmacies. SUPERVALU, which operates Cub, Farm Fresh, Shoppers, and Shop ‘n Save, is now home to Stayhealthy’s FDA-cleared, self-monitoring HealthCENTERs providing convenient, clinical-grade health screenings free of charge.
Screenings include blood pressure, heart rate, total body composition (percent lean mass, percent body fat, and hydration index), total body weight/BMI, and vision (color blindness). The HealthCENTERs also support the uploading of readings taken from personal blood glucose meters, enabling meaningful trending of blood glucose levels over time and allowing users to share their results with their local pharmacist or physician if they so choose.
SUPERVALU customers who register at a HealthCENTER with their own unique user ID and password will have the added benefit of tracking and trending their personal screening results over time in their own Stayhealthy® electronic Personalized Health and Fitness Record™ which is accessible from any internet-connected computer or mobile device.
“We are excited to offer SUPERVALU customers this unique and much needed resource to enable them to monitor and track their health”, stated Steve McCann, Vice President of Pharmacy for SUPERVALU. “Stayhealthy was selected as our exclusive HealthCENTER provider due to their clinical expertise and reputation. Stayhealthy and SUPERVALU share in the desire to demonstrate a commitment to delivering meaningful health and wellness programs aimed at improving the health of individuals.”
“Once again, Stayhealthy has partnered with a retailer, in this case, SUPERVALU, who is committed to providing a convenient means to measure, monitor, and improve customers’ overall well-being. This highly accurate free health assessment is an example of SUPERVALU’s commitment to customer wellness, at a time when access to affordable healthcare remains a challenge for many Americans,” stated John Collins, chief executive officer, of Stayhealthy, Inc. “The flexibility of this internet, consumer-based system, allows users to record assessments on any HealthCENTER, and both record assessments and access their Stayhealthy health and fitness record from any internet connected device, setting the stage for the future of healthcare in this country.”
The inclusion of SUPERVALU to the existing online network of Stayhealthy HealthCENTERs increases the total number of publically accessible free of charge health screening opportunities to over 3,500 locations across the United States and Canada. The online network is currently experiencing an average of 2.5 million tests per month, a statistic which has been on the rise and is predicted to reach 3 million tests per month sometime this summer.
