May 21, 2012 - PRLog -- MIAMI, Fla.  – Ocean Bank and United Healthcare are unveiling an interactive, state-of-the-art health information kiosk that will provide Ocean Bank employees and customers with culturally relevant health and wellness information in English and Spanish. The unveiling will take place at 11 a.m. May 22, 2012, at the Ocean Bank branch at 780 NW 42nd Ave., Miami.
   
Developed by UnitedHealthcare’s Latino Health Solutions, the kiosk offers health and wellness information via bilingual “fotonovelas,” health and wellness brochures, podcasts and interactive health modules such as Health Education Answers, a bilingual interactive program that provides tips on how to enhance their health and that of their families. The easy-to-use, informative bilingual Health Information Kiosk can be placed at offices, manufacturing plants or distribution centers of large UnitedHealthcare employer-customers that have a large Hispanic workforce or customer base.

“Our goal is to provide Ocean Bank employees with timely and convenient access to information pertinent to their and their families’ health and wellness,” said Ray Coto, CFO, UnitedHealthcare Employer & Individual of South Florida.  “This health kiosk is a great example of how we are helping to simplify the health care experience for Hispanics in a simple, in-language and culturally sensitive way.”  

Ocean Bank employees will be able to look up their own insurance plan information, find in-network doctors and care providers, view podcasts and receive information on such issues as diabetes, weight management, smoking cessation, medication safety, heart health and smart-eating choices.  The health kiosk also will provide access to bilingual websites from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Heart Association and other sources.
   
“We are committed to our employees’ health and well-being,” said Yuni Navarro, senior vice president human resources, Ocean Bank. “Due to the sensitive nature of banking, employees have limited Internet access. These kiosks will provide useful health and insurance information to our employees onsite.”

UnitedHealthcare’s Latino Health Solutions provides dedicated resources nationally to serve Hispanic health plan customers and their employers, including enhanced bilingual services that help consumers better understand and use their health benefits, and learn how to best manage their health and the health of their families.
