5 Startups Shaping the Future of Health Care

Oct 27, 2021
TytoCare is developing digital, multiuse testing kits for monitoring vital signs and diagnosing common illnesses. TytoCare’s telemedicine equipment, which is being used in thousands of schools in the U.S., can perform ear exams, listen to heart and lung rhythms, and take temperature readings, and then transmit that data to physicians. The device is designed to be easily used by patients, parents, or non-doctor medical personnel.
“Let’s be real — we’re not saving lives,” says CEO Dedi Gilad. “But we are dealing with the most annoying and basic interaction with health care. When you don’t know what to do, when you are anxious or under stress, you want to access a menu of options. Today, the industry doesn’t really give you a very good solution.” TytoCare’s at-home exams provide that menu without the need to visit a doctor’s office.
 

Telemedicine won’t be replacing live doctors anytime soon, but technology like TytoCare’s offers a chance to triage basic exams, keeping doctor’s offices quieter and lowering costs for patients. Founded in 2012, the New York City-based company recently closed a $100 million Series D funding round.
