Costco installs health kiosks in Canada pharmacies

PORTLAND, Ore. — Mass merchandiser Costco is adding information kiosks to its 25 pharmacies in Canada’s Ontario province.

Aisle7, the U.S.-based company that makes the kiosks, said the kiosks would make customer self-care education on generic and branded drugs, as well as drug information, available through an interactive kiosk-based display.

“We’re excited to offer our shoppers the Aisle7 program as an extention to the services we provide in our pharmacy,” Costco assistant VP pharmacy eastern division for the United States and Canada Rick Duffy said. “Aisle7 provides us with a credible, easy-to-use information resource for our shoppers, as well as a customizable marketing platform to promote our monthly health events.”
