The program will facilitate and supplement TytoHome device donations from TytoCare and partners including health systems and insurers. The goal is to provide increased medical care access to underserved populations around the globe.
TytoHome enables comprehensive remote physical exams of the heart, skin, ears, throat, abdomen, and lungs, and measures heart rate and body temperature, which are key for treating many acute and chronic conditions. This allows healthcare clinicians to gain the vital clinical data they require to monitor, diagnose, and treat patients remotely.
The first major TytoCareS giveback is a joint donation with Novant Health, an integrated healthcare system based in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.
Novant Health is donating more than 330 TytoHome devices to communities in Ukraine that lack access to basic healthcare due to the ongoing war. TytoCare will donate an additional 50 devices.
Previously, TytoCare donated TytoHome devices to an orphanage in Chad and to the Sheba Beyond virtual hospital for Ukrainian refugees in Moldova in conjunction with Sheba Medical Center.
The Sheba Beyond team is training Ukrainian doctors so that once the Sheba team leaves Ukraine, local staff can continue utilizing this remote solution for medical checks and second opinions.
“We are very proud that TytoCare is already impacting millions of people around the world across different modalities of care,” said Dedi Gilad, CEO and cofounder of TytoCare.
“With the TytoCareS initiative, we’re going one step further and enabling access to primary care for even more people, including those that don’t currently have access at all, whether due to location, economic situation, or geopolitical issues.”
