What do you do when a child is sick, but you can’t get them to see a doctor? During the pandemic, when many parents’ resilience and patience was tested, Israeli digital health startup TytoCare offered a new and innovative solution. The company has created a remote examination tool and telehealth platform that enables full examination of the heart, lungs, skin, throat, and ears, including temperature readings. The company’s mission is to provide easy, affordable, and high-quality telehealth visits, complete with medical exams, from the comfort of a patient’s home. Using the platform, parents (or users) fill out a list of symptoms, the app then recommends the following tests they should do, and assists them in taking the proper readings. All this can be done either by using the company’s FDA-approved TytoCare “smart” Stethoscope or an iPhone or iPad, which are guided by an artificial-intelligence system.
