Tyto Care, a telehealth platform, has introduced an app on Epic App Orchard marketplace, empowering healthcare systems to easily integrated telehealth services to their care providers and patients for comprehensive virtual visits and access to patient data. This integration with Epic marketplace enables patients to utilize the TytoCare examination device and consumer application in unified workflow with Epic’s MyChart patient app. Moreover, care providers also can perform remote medical tests using Tytocare and utilize that data to conduct comprehensive telehealth visits and physical assessments.
On this integration, CEO and Co-founder of Tyto Care, Dedi Gilad stated that “Integrating into the Epic marketplace was a natural next step for us in expanding our mission to transform primary care with increased convenience and efficiency.” According to him, “Tyto Care’s key clinical data is now available in real-time to patients and health providers, creating a more holistic and streamlined experience for patients and doctors alike.” By using Epic’s MyChart, patients can kick off a live or scheduled TytoCare telehealth visit with a remote virtual health care provider directly from within the app.
Epic is still one of the most popular electronic health records (EHR) vendors in the United States, as a result, the latest integration is a key selling point for Tyto Care that is presently pursuing several avenues to widen its technology reach. Founded in 2012, Tyto Care offers its telemedicine platform to both consumers and health systems and enabling anyone to act self physical examination and remote diagnosis. Although, this latest move strengthens the company’s reach in the latter group.
