NEW YORK, March 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Tyto Care, the healthcare industry's first all-in-one modular device and telehealth platform for on-demand, remote medical examinations, today announced that it is now supporting healthcare organizations around the world in the global fight against COVID-19. Hospital and health organization partners in the U.S., Europe and Israel are expanding their use of Tyto Care's telehealth solution to remotely examine and diagnose quarantined patients and isolated patients at home, providing health professionals the clinical data required to make informed treatment decisions from a safe distance and minimizing physical contact to help stem the spread of COVID-19.
With the U.S. Federal and State Governments and the CDC recognizing telemedicine's potential during this global pandemic, telehealth services are in high demand. Public health officials are urging patients to stay out of emergency rooms and clinics, and hospitals and health organizations are being encouraged to leverage telemedicine technologies and self-assessment tools to provide remote care for patients with non-urgent matters.
Using Tyto Care to remotely examine quarantined patients in hospitals and isolated patients at home, healthcare providers are able to avoid exposure and the "worried well" are able to receive care without entering medical facilities, preventing the spread of the virus and significantly reducing the increased burden on already overworked health organizations. Both new and existing health organization and hospital partners in the U.S. and Europe are working with Tyto Care to quickly increase their preparation and prevention efforts in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. In Israel, Tyto Care has deployed in nearly every hospital nationwide, including the renowned Sheba Medical Center.
"The fight against the COVID-19 pandemic is strengthening each day and as the virus continues to spread, we are focusing our efforts where we can make the most impact – easing the burden on healthcare providers serving quarantined and isolated patients," said Dedi Gilad, Tyto Care CEO and co-founder. "Tyto Care is uniquely suited to provide the remote exam and diagnostic capabilities required to aid affected populations at scale, fully realizing telehealth's potential during this crisis. It's my hope that this pandemic passes quickly and that we can help flatten the curve."
Tyto Care is the only remote, comprehensive physical examination solution with diagnostic capabilities enabling users to perform remote medical examinations, including lung and heart exams and temperature, which are key for monitoring COVID-19. The high-quality clinical data captured is reviewed remotely by a health professional, enabling them to monitor, diagnose and treat patients quarantined in hospitals and at home, fully replicating an in-person visit. The solution is being deployed quickly and at scale for hospitals and health organizations, with training for medical staff and implementation occurring in a day.
