Two telehealth technology vendors, Tyto Care and American Well, have formed a new partnership to deploy a new telehealth platform that combines video visits with remote physical examinations.

According to a press release, Tyto Care’s examination platform and clinical exam data will be integrated into American Well’s telehealth platform. In turn, Tyto Care will offer its customers access to the network of healthcare providers using American Well’s platform. Through this integration, patients can replicate an in-office visit and conduct medical examinations of the heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, throat, skin and temperature at home using Tyto Care, then share the exam with a clinician prior to or during a telemedicine visit.

Tyto Care offers telehealth solutions to doctors and patients and during a remote physical exam, the physical exam data is captured through the use of tools such as an advanced digital stethoscope, otoscope, thermometer and examination camera with a secure data exchange, clinical repository and live telehealth visits.

Initially the partnership will deliver the integrated telehealth solution to patients through health systems and employers.

“This partnership will further our efforts to extend the clinician’s reach beyond the four walls of the clinic,” Dedi Gilad, CEO and co-founder of Tyto Care, said in a statement. Gilad said the addition of remote examinations to telehealth visits assists doctors by “closely replicating what happens in the doctor’s office.”
