RIVERSIDE, Mo. — Rolling Strong, a provider of driver wellness programs for transportation companies and their drivers as well as owner-operators, has formed a partnership to provide healthcare services to truck drivers using the eTrueNorth network of local pharmacies through the Rolling Strong health and wellness platform.
“This partnership will take the traditional on-site screening process that wellness companies typically coordinate and provide a new level of accessibility by giving professional drivers a screening and health services destination while on the road,” said Stephen Kane, Rolling Strong’s president. “Screenings will not only be provided through our mobile network, but the information is stored for the driver in their Rolling Strong personal health portal, giving them an opportunity to work with our CDL wellness coaches to prepare for their next DOT medical exam.”
With the addition of eTrueNorth to the Rolling Strong mobile app and health and wellness platform, drivers can take advantage of healthcare screening services at local pharmacies across the U.S. eTrueNorth uses its eLabNetwork, a nationwide network of independent CLIA-waived laboratories located in retail pharmacies, to make it easier for Rolling Strong participants to have easy access to laboratory testing.
“Our mission of driving access to quality and affordable healthcare services at local pharmacies is a natural extension of Rolling Strong’s health and wellness platform for the trucking industry’s drivers,” said Coral S. May, eTrueNorth’s president. “By providing high quality, accurate and precise point-of-care testing and real time transfer of data to wellness providers, we are also able to make it easier for motor carriers that use the Rolling Strong platform to gather biometric data from drivers as part of their wellness initiatives.”
The Rolling Strong health and wellness mobile app for IOS and Android devices offers exercise programs and nutrition and personal health guidance, including the ability to connect with a wellness coach. Drivers can also earn points and rewards for logging sleep, exercising, and meeting daily calorie goals.
