What is TytoCare?
TytoCare is a handheld exam kit used to enhance the NorthShore video visit experience. This portable medical exam kit allows you to capture physical exam data, like heart and lung sounds or ear and throat pictures, and share it, using your smart device, with providers from NorthShore Immediate Care or Pediatrics from the comfort and safety of your home. Using this information, and other details provided during the visit, the team can make a diagnosis and offer a treatment plan, including prescriptions - if needed.
