Well, the nation’s leading telehealth technology and services

“This partnership will further our efforts to extend the clinician’s
reach beyond the four walls of the clinic,” said Dedi Gilad, CEO and
Co-Founder of Tyto Care. “Our collaborative efforts will allow us to
unlock one of telehealth’s most challenging shortcomings by adding
remote examinations to fully inform a telehealth visit, closely
replicating what happens in the doctor’s office.”
Tyto Care’s examination platform and clinical exam data will be
integrated into American Well’s telehealth platform. In turn, Tyto Care
will offer its customers access to the vast network of healthcare
providers using American Well’s platform. Through this integration,
patients can replicate an in-office visit and conduct medical
examinations of the heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, throat, skin and
temperature at home using TytoCare, then share the exam with a clinician
prior to or during a telemedicine visit.
Tyto Care recently launched its comprehensive telehealth solutions for
doctors and patients. The physical exam data captured by Tyto – which
combines an advanced digital stethoscope, otoscope, thermometer and
examination camera with a secure data exchange, clinical repository and
live telehealth visits – provides vital information that enables doctors
to make diagnoses with the confidence of an in-person visit.
Initially the partnership will deliver the integrated telehealth
solution to patients through health systems and employers.
“Our partnership with Tyto Care arms remote telehealth physicians with
the physical examination they traditionally needed to safely diagnose,
treat and follow medical conditions while the patient remains in their
home,” said Dr. Roy Schoenberg, CEO, American Well. “This is a
significant step forward for the telemedicine industry and further
extends the scope and reach of safe digital healthcare delivery.”

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today.
