TytoCare’s Home and Clinic solutions will provide Carilion’s patients, many in rural communities, with comprehensive remote care capabilities
NEW YORK — TytoCare, the global healthcare industry’s first all-in-one modular device and examination solution for AI-powered, remote medical exams, is partnering with Carilion Clinic, a not-for-profit healthcare organization based in Roanoke, Virginia. The integration of TytoCare into Carilion’s current virtual care offerings enhances the health system’s ability to diagnose and treat patients remotely with in-depth, physical examinations during virtual visits.
Rural communities comprise two-thirds of areas suffering from a shortage of primary care physicians in the United States. Carilion provides quality care for nearly one million Virginians, many in rural communities, and through its partnership with TytoCare, Carilion will expand primary care access for its patients. TytoCare’s FDA-cleared hand-held examination kit enables users to perform comprehensive physical exams of the heart, skin, ears, throat, abdomen, and lungs and measure heart rate and body temperature, vital examinations for diagnosing and treating many acute and chronic conditions.
“We’re thrilled to partner with TytoCare, an innovative telehealth solution that provides our physicians with the clinical data crucial to diagnosing and treating patients remotely,” said Stephen A. Morgan, M.D., Carilion Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Information Officer. “We’re excited to bring these telehealth capabilities to rural communities that have historically been unable to use this new standard of healthcare. TytoCare’s technology is intuitive and easy-to-use for patients and providers and supplies our patients with the convenient, quality care they deserve.”
Carilion uses the TytoHome solution for patients with chronic conditions through an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) agreement, allowing patients to benefit from healthcare services that significantly reduce time spent in hospitals and clinics. Carilion is also using TytoHome to monitor pediatric asthma patients remotely. Carilion will also use the TytoClinic solution in rural schools to increase students’ and teachers’ access to physicians and specialists. TytoCare visits can be downloaded into Carilion’s electronic medical record system and integrate seamlessly with MyChart, enabling flexibility and ease of use for both patients and providers.
“We’re excited to work with Carilion to enhance the quality and scope of telehealth visits for both patients and their physicians through our market-leading solution,” said Dedi Gilad, CEO and Co-Founder of TytoCare. “As health systems reimagine what primary care looks like in 2022, they quickly understand that more virtual-first options benefit the entire health ecosystem and can be used to increase access to first-rate healthcare regardless of geographic region. TytoCare’s remote physical examinations ensure that virtual-first programs deliver thorough, quality care to patients, no matter where they live.”
