With a fresh Series B financing round of $11 million, Israeli-based telemedicine startup Tyto Care is putting its own unique spin on the diagnostic device market. Backed by strategic investors like Cambia Health Solutions and Walgreens, Tyto Care is discussing its innovative product–deemed the “Swiss Army knife of handheld diagnostic devices”–with a number of digital health news resources.

Tyto Care’s solution combines a handheld device and online communication platform that is designed to facilitate secure and seamless interactions between patient and provider. The diagnostic handheld device can aid non-medical individuals (namely parents) in examining a child’s mouth, throat, eyes, heart sounds, lung sounds, temperature, skin and ears when traveling to the doctor’s office for an in-person visit is not possible. Doctors can conveniently guide users in performing these tests in real time or a “store and forward” method can be applied, whereby a doctor receives the results collected by Tyto Care’s device for remote viewing.

Tyto Care was co-founded by Dedi Gilad and Ofer Tzadik in 2012, with the goal of providing “connected examination technology” beyond the scope of just phone or video conferencing to patients and providers alike. After this third round of funding, Tyto Care is believed to have raised $18.5 million to date and final device approval from the US Food and Drug Administration is expected to be granted within the calendar year.
