Chicago, IL – May 15, 2019 – higi, a consumer health engagement platform who partners with leading retailers to enable care access points via a connected network of smart health stations, today announced the extension of its longstanding partnership with the Rite Aid Corporation.
higi stations offer free health screenings to consumers, as well as interactive educational content focused on awareness, prevention and management of some of today’s most pervasive chronic conditions. Additionally, the network serves as an access point to care for consumers who may choose to engage with a trusted healthcare organization such as Rite Aid through higi’s platform.
“The extension of our Rite Aid partnership signals the importance of pharmacy retail as a partner in health for today’s consumers,” said Jeff Bennett, CEO at higi. “Rite Aid continues to provide an industry-leading health and wellness experience for consumers. We are thrilled to extend this partnership and work jointly to connect shoppers to the right care resources at the right time, while providing smarter access to in-store health and wellness services.”
Rite Aid and higi first partnered together in 2014 to offer free health screenings through higi in Rite Aid stores. Since then, higi stations in Rite Aid stores have conducted more than 53 million screenings, with nearly 8 million in 2018 alone.
“higi offers a valuable resource to our customers in Rite Aid stores,” said Summer Kerley, Rite Aid’s vice president of clinical services. “The higi station experience offers reliable and important health information to Rite Aid customers to help them manage their health and wellness, and take the right steps toward improving it. We look forward to our continued partnership.”
