TytoCare, a virtual care company enabling health plans and providers to deliver accessible, high-quality remote primary care anywhere across the country, will host health system leaders for a half-day virtual summit focused on engaging patients through schools.

The School Health Virtual Summit will take place on Wednesday, February 7 at 10:00am EST and will feature speakers from health systems including Children’s Medical Center Dallas, Atrium Health and Cone Health. The event will feature a keynote address from Lauren Aronson, former Director of the Office of Legislation for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

“Healthcare in schools has evolved from the old days of a school nurse stationed in the school’s administrative office,” said Dedi Gilad, CEO and Co-Founder of TytoCare. “Innovative health system leaders across the country are using schools to meet patients where they are, increasing access to care – particularly in more rural regions. We’re proud to work with health systems to help them expand their offerings for students.”

The summit will focus on enhancing care accessibility, meeting patients in their communities, and exploring strategies to launch and optimize efficient school healthcare programs. The agenda includes:
