Baptist Health taps TytoCare to enhance virtual care

TytoCare's Home and Clinic solutions will provide Baptist Health with comprehensive virtual care capabilities for both current and prospective patients in Kentucky and Indiana


TytoCare announced a partnership with Baptist Health, a full-spectrum health system serving Kentucky and Indiana. Baptist Health will integrate TytoCare’s Home Smart Clinic solution into its current telehealth offering, enhancing the health system’s ability to diagnose and treat patients with in-depth, remote physical examinations during virtual visits, including urgent care video visits. The partnership enables the health system to gain a first-to-market advantage and exclusivity with TytoCare in Kentucky as well as areas of Indiana.

How does it work?

Baptist Health will be deploying TytoCare’s TytoHome and TytoClinic solutions. The TytoHome remote examination device can be purchased by patients directly through Baptist Health, enabling a direct-to-consumer revenue stream for the health system. This solution will provide Baptist Health patients with accessible, high-quality primary and urgent care from the comfort of home, without compromises. In the coming months, Baptist Health will also use TytoHome devices to monitor and assist patients with chronic medical conditions. TytoClinic will be used by Baptist Health in workplaces, schools, and small, local clinics, extending Baptist Health’s reach.

As part of the Home Smart Clinic, TytoCare’s FDA-cleared handheld examination kit enables users to perform comprehensive physical exams of the heart, skin, ears, throat, abdomen, and lungs, and measure heart rate and body temperature, which are key for treating many acute and chronic conditions. This allows healthcare clinicians to gain the vital clinical data needed to monitor, diagnose, and remotely treat patients.

TytoCare devices are available for purchase here via Baptist Health. Baptist Health patients, as well as non-patients, can purchase the devices and connect with Baptist Health providers.

On the record

“We’re excited to work together with Baptist Health to enhance their virtual-first offerings,” said Dedi Gilad, CEO and co-founder of TytoCare. “Through our partnership, Baptist Health can reduce the number of Emergency Department visits their patients experience, as well as reach younger patients who are seeking convenient, digital, and reliable healthcare services without compromising quality of care.”

“We wanted to offer high-quality yet practical patient care beyond the brick-and-mortar setting and adding TytoCare to our offering will enable that,” said Jody Prather, MD, Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer at Baptist Health. “TytoCare’s solutions can be used across the household, allowing all our patients to easily take care of their primary or urgent care needs without the drive or wait time.”

The context

Virtual care has become a vital resource for both patients and health systems in recent years, enabling health systems to extend their reach beyond the hospital, clinic, or doctor’s office. Through its partnership with TytoCare, Baptist Health will expand access to primary and urgent care for its patients, enabling them to stay on top of their health without the need for in-person visits. TytoCare’s Home Smart Clinic solution goes beyond traditional audio and video telehealth offerings to enable comprehensive virtual care for diverse patient populations across various modalities including urgent care, primary care, chronic care, preventive care, and holistic care, as well as to provide user engagement services and AI-powered diagnostic support. The TytoCare solution resolves 59% more conditions than audio/visual telehealth offerings and 98% of visits without necessitating an in-person appointment.
