BOSTON, Sept. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Amwell® (NYSE: AMWL), a national telehealth leader, today announced it is expanding its partnership with Tyto Care, the healthcare industry's first all-in-one modular device and examination platform for AI-powered, on-demand, remote medical exams. Together the companies will introduce exclusive integrations and newly designed workflows and tools to enhance the ability for providers using the Amwell platform to examine and diagnose patients virtually. Additionally, Amwell will become a reseller of Tyto Care's integrated devices.
By pairing the TytoHome handheld examination device – which enables on-demand examinations of the heart, lungs, abdomen, skin, throat, ears, heart rate, and body temperature – with Amwell's telehealth platform, providers can guide patients through virtual health examinations and together gain real-time insight into a patient's health data and status directly in the visit. For patients and providers, this will augment the virtual care experience and more broadly enrich the capabilities and overall satisfaction associated with healthcare organizations' virtual care applications. This enriched workflow will be available to thousands of Amwell hospitals, health systems, health plans and employer clients who collectively serve millions of patients.
"As COVID-19 wages on and more patients and providers adopt telehealth, it's critical that we accelerate the depth of care that can be provided in the home – to keep patients and providers safe," said Roy Schoenberg, President and Co-CEO, Amwell. "Our latest integration with Tyto Care will allow providers to clinically come closer than ever before to patients during telehealth encounters, allowing them to see, interact, examine and deliver care in ways that growingly resemble in-person care."
"Our longstanding partnership with Amwell exemplifies our shared goal of providing deeply integrated telehealth solutions that put health in the hands of consumers, creating a more impactful and seamless healthcare experience for both patients and providers," said Dedi Gilad, CEO and Co-Founder, Tyto Care. "The integration with TytoHome will enable Amwell to offer more holistic care for patients, especially for urgent and primary care needs, as well as help to enable better adherence to treatment plans. We look forward to continuing our work together as we realize the full potential of clinic-quality, at-home care in this new era of telehealth."
As a resale partner of Tyto Care, Amwell clients can now purchase TytoCare devices, bundled with the livestream integration directly through Amwell. For more information please visit: https://business.amwell.com/telemedicine-equipment/tytocare/
