TytoHome is a lightweight and portable medical exam kit. The TytoCare app gives you an interface between the exam kit and your smartphone or tablet. With these tools, you can collect and send information to a Novant Health professional from your smartphone. Your healthcare provider guides you during the exam.
With tools in the exam kit, you can capture high-quality digital sounds from your heart and lungs. You also can share readings of your heart rate and body temperature, or create images and videos that show your inner ears, throat and skin. Your healthcare provider uses this information and other details you provide to make a diagnosis and offer a treatment plan and prescription, if needed.
With TytoHome, you can get a diagnosis and treatment for many common conditions, including stomach aches, allergies, sinus pain, bug bites, ear infections, pink eye, fevers, rashes, colds and congestion.
You also can use the TytoHome kit to get a comprehensive physical exam.
Best of all, you can get virtual care while you’re at home, at work or on the go.

With TytoHome’s exam kit, you get a comprehensive medical exam that’s closer to the experience in a healthcare provider’s office. You can collect and share images and audio that allows the provider to diagnose your condition and recommend treatment. Without that data, your provider might ask you to come into the office to provide the information that TytoHome lets you share.
Once you have a TytoHome kit, you can sign up as many as five people to share the device for video visits.
It usually takes just a few minutes, depending on how many people are “in line” ahead of you.
