What You Should Know:
– The integration of TytoCare into Spectrum Health’s virtual care offering will enhance the health system’s ability to diagnose and treat patients remotely with in-depth, physical examinations during video visits. In an initial pilot with Spectrum Health employees and their families, 75% of patients and 100% of health care providers indicated that using the TytoCare exam kit during video visits improved the quality and comprehensive nature of the appointment.
– TytoCare’s FDA-cleared handheld examination kit enables users to perform comprehensive physical exams of the heart, skin, ears, throat, abdomen, and lungs, which are key for treating many non-acute and chronic conditions. This allows health care providers to gain the vital clinical data they require to monitor, diagnose, and treat patients and avoid unnecessary in-person visits.
– Using the Spectrum Health app, consumers can connect to their provider for a live, on-demand video visit. During the visit, the health care provider will guide the patient through the examination process using the TytoCare exam kit. Based on examination results, the provider can then make a diagnosis and treatment plan and write a prescription, if needed. Video visits with TytoCare and Spectrum Health are available 24/7.
