Xerox invests in telehealth company HealthSpot


Xerox is investing in HealthSpot, a pioneer in patient- and provider-driven healthcare technology. The funding will help the company expand the number of locations in the U.S. where it offers telehealth services. In addition, HealthSpot will also get access to Xerox’s relationships across the healthcare industry. Over the next five years, HealthSpot plans to deploy kiosks to retail pharmacies, large employers, long-term care centers and emergency departments throughout the nation.

HealthSpot will also get access to Xerox’s relationships across the healthcare industry.The HealthSpot platform allows patients to interact with nationally recognized doctors. The average visit to one of HealthSpot’s fully enclosed, 40-square foot kiosks takes 15 minutes, offering patients convenient access to doctors, specialists and prescriptions.

“By combining the HealthSpot platform with our powerful brand and more than 40 years of healthcare experience, we’re helping patients unlock affordable access to care while positioning Xerox to play a significant role in the future of healthcare,” said Connie Harvey, COO of Commercial Healthcare for Xerox.

Xerox is also partnering with HealthSpot to combine its software platform with Xerox’s business process services expertise. As part of the deal, Xerox will deliver cloud hosting, system integration, claims eligibility and claims submissions solutions to HealthSpot. The kiosk will use Xerox’s IT infrastructure for appointment booking, as an interface to electronic health records and for insurance coordination.
