NEW YORK, Nov. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Tyto Care, creator of the health care industry's first all-in-one modular device and telehealth platform for on-demand, remote medical exams, today announced the nationwide availability of TytoHome, following a successful initial rollout in the Midwest. The TytoHome telehealth solution, now available in over 300 Best Buy stores, offers consumers across the country the ability to replicate an in-person doctor visit from the comfort of home.
TytoHome is a handheld examination device with attachments that can examine the heart, lungs, skin, ears, throat and abdomen, as well as measure body temperature. The solution enables users to perform comprehensive medical exams and send the captured exam data to one of Tyto Care's health care provider partners for diagnosis of acute care situations like ear infections, sore throats, fever, cold and flu, allergies, stomach aches, upper respiratory infections, coughs, rashes and more. Users can connect with a provider 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, no matter their location.
"Launching TytoHome nationally is a huge milestone for us and we are proud to be working alongside Best Buy in fulfilling their commitment to expanding digital health options for consumers," said Dedi Gilad, CEO and co-founder of Tyto Care. "Tyto Care's mission has always been to make high-quality health care accessible and on demand, from any location, to as many people as possible. This launch signifies a major step forward for the future of health care."

- Ochsner Health System, covering users in Louisiana and Mississippi;
