The partnership with TytoCare will enable Al-Futtaim to broaden its reach across the healthcare spectrum, covering all touchpoints, from specialists to local clinics.
Al-Futtaim Group is a large conglomerate based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, with businesses across numerous industries including, automotive, financial services, real estate, and retail. Their recently added healthcare vertical offers trusted and specialized care within a holistic environment across pharmacies as well as 12 outpatient clinics throughout Dubai.
Al-Futtaim will be integrating TytoCare's TytoPro solution into its HealthHub clinics.

Designed for professional-to-professional use, TytoPro enables clinicians to conduct a remote exam to obtain a second opinion or specialist consult. The TytoPro solution includes the TytoCare device with exam camera and thermometer as well as the TytoCare otoscope, stethoscope, tongue depressor adaptor, and earbuds. These are all connected to the TytoCare Clinician Dashboard that can be used for conducting live video telehealth exams, reviewing exams, and communicating with patients. With TytoPro, clinicians can send exam data to the patients' EHR for continuity of care.
"We're excited to announce our partnership with Al-Futtaim Group, which will offer their patients a robust virtual care experience," said Dedi Gilad, CEO and Co-Founder of TytoCare.

With TytoCare, Al-Futtaim will also extend clinician services to corporate customers and other healthcare clinics across Dubai, enabling employees and patients to get quick and easy specialist consults or second opinions virtually.
