TytoCare Sent Telehealth Kits To Ukraine Before The Start Of The Conflict

Mar 02, 2022

A little over six months before the Russian invasion of Ukraine, UNICEF (The United Nations Children’s Fund) delivered 50 TytoCare telehealth devices to 10 areas in Eastern Ukraine in order to make it easier for children living in areas with difficult access to health care to receive proper, high-quality health services.

The telehealth solutions were distributed among the health centers in the villages and cities of Shakhove, Novohrodivka, Marinka, Kramatorsk, Bakhmut (both city and area), Sloviansk, Selidovo, Druzhkivka, and Avdiivka. They were distributed through Ukrainian medical technology company Giva Care Group.

“With more than 400,000 children living in the conflict-affected area, almost 20,000 of them reside in locations with difficult access to health care. This initiative is extremely important, especially during the times of the COVID-19 pandemic. Telemedicine will allow us to increase access to essential health services for the most disadvantaged families, as well as protect the frontline healthcare workers,” said Andrej Slavutskij, head of UNICEF Ukraine’s Health Programme.

“This is the first time such high-quality telehealth technology has become available to Ukrainian physicians and patients. TytoCare works with more than 150 healthcare systems worldwide: in the United States, Europe, Asia, and Israel. In 2020 alone, almost 650,000 examinations were performed with its help. To ensure the most efficient use of the telehealth platforms and build the technical capacity of healthcare professionals at the community level, Giva Care Group will provide training and around-the-clock technical support to the staff of health centers that would receive innovative digital tools”, said Kyrylo Levin, CEO of Giva Care Group.

Founded in 2012 by Dedi Gilad and Ofer Tzadik, TytoCare offers remote examination kits and an all-in-one telehealth AI platform that virtually links patients and healthcare professionals. Its service enables people to self-conduct examinations of the heart, lungs, skin, throat, and ears as well as temperature readings from anywhere at any time, supplying healthcare providers with the clinical data they need to monitor, diagnose, and treat patients without the need for an in-person visit.

“TytoCare has always been on the cutting edge of technology and has been ahead of the virtual care wave. Our remote exams, including listening to heart and lung sounds, and examining the ears and throat, are all integrated with AI learning and live exam capabilities, and have been leveraged by health systems so that they too can stay ahead of the curve,” Ohad Pollak, VP of Marketing, tells NoCamels.
