“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.”
