Health Kiosk

Kiosk Information Systems and Healthnotes Inc. Launch Consumer Health Kiosk for Retail Applications

LOUISVILLE, Colo., -- Kiosk Information Systems (KIS) and Healthnotes Inc., a nationally-recognized leader in providing consumer information on health and lifestyle issues, have developed and launched an interactive kiosk system designed for supermarket, pharmacy and natural product store customers. Healthnotes branded the new kiosk the EasyAnswers Touchscreen and will sell it to retailers bundled with its kiosk software products, Healthnotes Healthy Living and Healthnotes Pharmacy.

Pennsylvania-based Clemens Family Markets is the first store to make the EasyAnswers Touchscreen available for its shoppers, incorporating the new kiosk in 20 of its 21 suburban Philadelphia locations.

Healthnotes Healthy Living and Healthnotes Pharmacy provide consumers with easy-to-understand, science-based information on health concerns, supplements, foods, nutrition, special diets, and weight control, as well as hundreds of recipes. Healthnotes Pharmacy also features over 2,000 patient education monographs (PEMs) on OTC and prescription medications. The articles, PEMs, and recipes can be printed directly from the kiosk.

"A growing consumer acceptance and use of kiosks is helping drive the introduction of these products in all facets of our lives," said Schuyler Lininger, HNI president and CEO. "Healthnotes is proud to team with Kiosk Information Systems to offer retailers a sophisticated yet user-friendly kiosk system that they can use in-store to educate shoppers on healthy living information at the point of decision."
