TytoCare to be deployed in Overlake Clinics Concierge Care service as a first in the Pacific Northwest, increasing patient utilization of remote care
[BELLEVUE, Wash., Jan. 7, 2023] – Overlake Medical Center & Clinics today announces its partnership with TytoCare, a virtual care company enabling accessible, high-quality primary care from home. Overlake Clinics is introducing the TytoHome device to its Concierge Care medical service to strengthen providers’ ability to diagnose and treat patients remotely with virtual physical exams.
The partnership, the first of its kind in the Pacific Northwest, will see an initial rollout of hundreds of TytoHome remote examination devices to Overlake Clinics Concierge Care members. The TytoHome device will be coupled with a pulse oximeter, a blood pressure cuff, and a weight scale to provide a broad range of diagnostic tests for Concierge Care patients, with the goal of transitioning to support the entire patient group with improved virtual care. The Epic-integrated solution also ensures seamless clinical workflows.
“Our priority for our patients is to provide the best possible personalized treatment, while simultaneously working to raise the bar on quality and access to care,” says Kelan Koenig, MD, Overlake Clinics Chief Physician Executive.
“We are excited to partner with TytoCare to bring this option to our patients, addressing their needs and helping us continue to provide care centered around our patients’ lifestyles and improving the virtual care experience,” adds Valerie Chrusciel, Overlake Clinics Chief Operating Officer.
TytoCare’s Home Smart Clinic offering delivers health plans and providers a comprehensive range of elements required for a truly successful virtual care program without compromises, with plans to expand the scope of the partnership throughout 2023. The solution includes TytoCare’s FDA-cleared handheld examination kit enabling users to perform comprehensive physical exams of the heart, skin, ears, throat, abdomen, and lungs, and measure heart rate and body temperature. It also includes Tyto Engagement Labs™, a suite of user engagement services, which will help drive an increase in virtual care utilization and improve user experience and patient retention among Overlake’s members.
“We are excited to be partnering with Overlake – our first partnership of this kind in the region – as they look to virtual care to strategically improve their core patient offerings,” said Dedi Gilad, CEO and Co-Founder of TytoCare. “As we continue to expand across the US, we seek health system partners like Overlake who prioritize not only quality of care, but user engagement. We tackle this on both fronts, providing patients with clinic-quality care from the comfort of home, while improving their experience and usage through tailored support and care across a range of modalities and patient populations.”
