TytoCare’s Virtual Primary Care Solution with Remote Physical Exams is Used 5x More Than Basic Telehealth Solutions
TytoCare announced that its Virtual Primary Care (VPC) solution with remote physical exams has led to significant behavioral change among members of partnering health insurers, accelerating the adoption of virtual primary care and digital-first plans while reducing costs. While the average adoption rate of traditional telehealth services is 12% among health insurance members with access to them, TytoCare’s VPC solution enjoys a 65% adoption rate due to its unique offering of timely and comprehensive remote medical exams spanning a wide range of care modalities including primary care, urgent care, preventive care, and chronic care.
Despite the increased usage of telehealth in recent years, basic telehealth solutions are insufficient to significantly reduce emergency department (ED) visits and build the trust necessary to serve as the foundation for digital-first primary care, both important factors for health insurers. TytoCare’s recent research found that 94% of TytoCare visits replaced an in-person primary care, urgent care, or ED visit, reducing costs for health insurers. Additionally, remote physical exams, more than basic audio-only or video-only telehealth services, enhance members’ comfort level with using virtual primary care, with 66% of those members offered remote physical exams willing to consider a digital-first plan. The survey also found that 67% of health insurance members are likely to stay with their health insurer long-term as a result of being offered remote physical examinations.

With TytoCare’s VPC offering, health insurers can design innovative plans for the entire family at home with TytoCare’s TytoHome device or for employers with on-site clinics with TytoCare’s TytoClinic system. In either case, plan members can connect with a healthcare provider either in TytoCare’s provider network or the health insurer’s own network. The solution integrates with health insurers’ existing digital infrastructures and is provider- and EHR-agnostic. The company’s FDA-cleared handheld examination kit enables users to perform remote physical exams of the heart, skin, ears, throat, abdomen, and lungs, and measure heart rate, body temperature, and blood oxygen levels, offering practitioners reliable data to base assessments on and building trust in telehealth for patients.
“We are very pleased to see that going beyond voice and video with remote physical exams has a substantial impact on VPC adoption with our health insurer partners,” said Dedi Gilad, CEO and Co-Founder of TytoCare. “By partnering with leading health insurers on their journey towards digital-first care, we are seeing improved quality of care coupled with affordable and innovative digital-first health plans that are already demonstrating results.”
