Tyto Care, the creator of the health care industry’s first all-in-one modular device and telehealth platform for on-demand, remote medical exams, today announced the expanded availability of TytoHome at select Best Buy retail stores in California, Ohio, North Dakota, and South Dakota. TytoHome is already available for all U.S. customers on BestBuy.com and in select Minnesota Best Buy locations. The expansion means that TytoHome is now available to consumers in a total of 30 Best Buy locations nationwide.
LiveHealth Online, powered by American Well, is the current provider for users who buy TytoHome in California and Ohio stores, as well as those who purchase it on BestBuy.com. Providers in other states include Sanford Health for users in North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota, as well as to Iowa users who buy the device from BestBuy.com; and Ochsner Health for users in Louisiana and Mississippi.
TytoHome, priced at $299.99, is a handheld examination device with attachments that can examine the heart, lungs, skin, ears, throat, and abdomen, as well as measure body temperature. With these features, users can perform comprehensive medical exams and send the captured information to a primary care provider for the diagnoses of acute care situations like ear infections, sore throats, fever, cold and flu, allergies, stomach aches, upper respiratory infections, coughs, rashes, and more. Through the American Well LiveHealth Online as well as the other providers, users can connect with a provider 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Each TytoHome visit costs a maximum of $59 and could cost less depending on the nature of the visit and/or the user’s health insurance plan.
“Since our recent launch on BestBuy.com and in Minnesota, we’ve witnessed growing excitement for TytoHome. Best Buy’s move to expand TytoHome into four more states demonstrates their customers’ desire for digital health offerings that make the healthcare experience more convenient,” said Dedi Gilad, CEO and co-founder of Tyto Care.
