SoloHealth, an Atlanta, Ga.-based healthcare technology company, has closed an $8.2m funding round.
The investment was led by healthcare IT industry veteran and founder of HBOC Walter Huff.
Led by CEO and Founder Bart Foster, SoloHealth provides self-service consumer healthcare, using technology to develop and deploy interactive health screening kiosks, as well as other platforms, to empower consumers about their health through awareness, education and action.
The company’s first solution was the EyeSite Vision kiosk, which is currently located in select retail outlets and markets nationwide.
SoloHealth is currently preparing for a nationwide rollout in 2012 of its SoloHealth Stations in retail locations nationwide. They offer vision, blood pressure, weight, and body mass index, receive an overall health assessment and access a database of local doctors.
The company also plans to hire approximately 50 additional staff during next 18 months including a CFO, Marketing Director and Ad Sales executives, effective immediately.
SoloHealth has so far raised nearly $13m, including an undisclosed amount from Coinstar, Inc., owner of Redbox DVD kiosks, as well as a $1.2m grant from the National Institutes of Health.
