What You Should Know:
– TytoCare, a provider of AI-powered, on-demand, remote medical exams has inked a partnership with MemorialCare, a health system in Orange and Los Angeles Counties, to bring patients diverse telehealth options and allow them to pursue comprehensive primary care options from home.
– The integration of the TytoCare solution into MemorialCare’s current telehealth appointments enhances the health system’s ability to diagnose and treat patients through in-depth, physical examinations during virtual visits. The partnership will differentiate MemorialCare from other regional health systems, providing new virtual care options for current patients and incentives to attract new ones.
TytoCare’s FDA-cleared handheld 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, which are key for treating many acute and chronic conditions. This allows healthcare clinicians to gain the vital clinical data they require to monitor, diagnose, and treat patients remotely.
MemorialCare is using TytoCare to enable patients to perform guided medical exams with MemorialCare providers remotely. Once they have a device, patients can access enhanced video visits 24/7 via MemorialCare’s Virtual Urgent Care. During a TytoCare appointment, providers can diagnose and treat conditions as well as provide a prescription, if needed. TytoCare exam data is sent via an encrypted, secure network and is stored on MemorialCare’s HIPAA-compliant cloud. The visit is also downloaded into MemorialCare’s electronic medical record system and integrates seamlessly with myChart, enabling flexibility and ease-of-use for both patients and providers. In the coming months, MemorialCare plans to expand its partnership with TytoCare to employer worksites with the TytoClinic solution, enabling employees to be assessed and treated on-site.
TytoCare devices are available for purchase here via MemorialCare and the device is HSA and FSA eligible. MemorialCare patients, as well as non-patients, can purchase the devices and connect with MemorialCare providers.
