High-street retailer Boots is using the latest communication technology, including voice and text messaging services, to deliver confidential health results.
The pharmacy chain will this month begin offering a chlamydia test kit and treatment services, after hosting an NHS trial for 16- to 24-year-olds.
Boots transmits the information via secure network to supplier Premiere Global Services, which uploads and analyses the data before determining the appropriate delivery method, automatically sending confidential results via voice, text or email.
Kicking and screaming, innovation lands on the shores of the United Kingdom! We should have had this years ago. Anyway, excellent. Bring it on.
