Healthcare’s Transformation to Modular Thinking, Part Two

Nov 10, 2021

In part two of the series, we look to see how modular thinking in robotics and point-of-care empower physicians to adapt treatments and procedures for the best possible outcome.

 

In part one of this three-part series, we looked at how the theory of modularity leads to adaptability and configurability, translating into a rise of personalized healthcare that diagnoses, treats and manages diseases on a personal, rather than population, level. In part two of the series, we look to see how modular thinking in robotics and point-of-care empower physicians to adapt treatments and procedures for the best possible outcome.

 

Point-of-Care Technologies

Another company placing modularity directly in front of the patient is TytoCare, which provides customers with artificial intelligence (AI)-powered, on-demand, remote medical exams. Their goal? Transform primary care and put health in the hands of consumers.

Harnessing the power of Wi-Fi, the TytoCare device and its modular attachments — devices to examine the ears, throat, lungs, heart, abdomen and skin — allow patients to share their symptoms with a medical professional. That medical professional tells the patient which tests to perform (and which adapters to use), then the patient performs the exam. The TytoCare app transmits the data in real time to healthcare providers, who can then make a guided diagnosis.
