A telepresence walk-in kiosk makes dispensing prescriptions in remote locations more convenient. This is possible due to a collaboration between HealthSpot and MedAvail. The HealthSpot Station ensures people's pharmaceutical needs are met through audio visual technology. The distance-bridging private kiosks offerspatients immediate access to a medical diagnosis from board-certified professional doctors through video conferencing and interactive digital tools.

The HealthSpot Stations will be dispensing prescriptions where there was no previous access to a retail pharmacy. MedAvail MedCenters will also be made available in the same area. After visiting a station, e-prescriptions can be filled at a MedCenter, which is responsible for the actual prescription drugs. Over-the-counter medications will also be available for customers at the MedCenter.

In addition to improving access to healthcare, this also makes dispensing prescriptions more affordable for Americans.
