DALLAS, TX, February 12, 2013 /EIN Presswire/
-- For years health conscious consumers have rated pharmacists as a favorite source of medical information. Now a leader in the field of direct-to-consumer communications is enhancing this link with a new source of comprehensive, detailed medical information. HealthyInfo2Go
(HI2G) has placed a series of take-away, pocket-size patient education cards on blood pressure kiosks in selected pharmacies, geographically dispersed across the nation.
Located immediately adjacent to the pharmacy counter, these kiosks offer not only health and disease management information, but also discount coupons, access to company-sponsored loyalty and adherence programs, brand websites and professional answers to frequently asked questions.
HealthyInfo2Go is conducting a 4 month test market inside chain pharmacies. Chains participating in the test market include CVS, Rite-Aid, Kerr Drugs and Tom Thumb. Each chain can measure its own results without bias.
Over-the-counter brands already know the benefits of placing coupons and reminders at the point of purchase. Now HealthyInfo2Go is providing a host of educational services with these new pocket-sized cards, available in sufficient quantities for consumers to share with friends and caregivers.
This is a new medium to communicate with health conscious consumers!
HealthyInfo2Go has developed this pharmacy test market as an expansion of its own successful 20-year track record in the travel/tourism/job recruitment industry at major travel centers across the country.
