Tyto Care technology will help monitor adherence to treatment plans.

Amwell and Tyto Care recently announced a partnership giving Amwell a home medical exam kit to provide to telehealth patients.

As a national telehealth provider, Amwell supports urgent care, acute care, chronic care, and wellness patient needs.

The Amwell platform is in use by more than 2,000 hospitals, 55 health plans, and 36,000 employers. The TytoHome Medical Exam Kit will now be used by Amwell to monitor adherence to treatment plans, as well as use with primary care and urgent care patients.

The TytoHome Medical Exam Kit has the potential to reach one-quarter of the U.S. population, subsequent to the Amwell partnership.

According to the HealthTech Insider newsletter, once the current pandemic is under control and people are less hesitant to leave their homes to make office visits, it will be interesting to see if the wider reach of home telehealth programs will cause a lasting change in how primary care medicine is practiced.
