CSI facilitates in-store health screenings.
SPARKS, Nev. -- Computerized Screening Inc. (CSI), which for the past quarter century has been supplying drug stores with in-pharmacy health screening monitors, has installed 40 of its units in government facilities worldwide in the past year.
Most recently, a unit was installed in Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, bringing to over 100 the number of government sites around the world with a CSI Health Station.
Executives estimate that since the company's inception in 1978 CSI's Health Station machines have performed more than 1 billion blood pressure tests. The supplier's machines are currently in more than 2,000 drug stores and supermarkets nationwide.
CSI's latest generation of machines, however, do more than just monitor blood pressure.
The company's premium machine, the Model 6000, is an interactive unit combining accurate blood pressure and weight measurement with the Internet and E-commerce.
Its Model 3000 monitors blood pressure, pulse and weight. Both units use CSI's patented blood pressure monitoring technology that analyzes 6,500 samples per test.
By establishing a Personal Medical Record (PMR) account with the company Health Station users can record, store and access test results as well as access records from physicians' office visits, hospitalizations and prescription histories from any CSI unit or through the Internet.
In addition, CSI's Model 6000 provides access to E-commerce and health information web sites; has a local community service directory and bulletin board customized to the store's area; and provides a medication database, more than 700 health tip videos and coupons for health care products.
Recently the company added telemedicine capabilities to its Health Stations, allowing users to communicate with health care providers at a local health care clinic and simultaneously transfer their screening test results.
