BearCare

What if you could connect to a caregiver from the comfort of home when your child has symptoms requiring a medical evaluation? There would be no need to make the trip across town and wait in the waiting room to address the child's care needs. Medical assessment and diagnosis could all be conducted from your home or other chosen setting.

Available to our patients, we offer a handheld device called TytoCare™ that captures body temparature and exam data from the ears, throat, lungs, skin and heart to support clinicians in addressing care needs.

TytoCare™ is provided to participating families to support assessment of symptoms, including but not limited to:

  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Bronchitis
  • Eye Irritation
  • Flu and Cold Symptoms
  • Sinus Discomfort
  • Wounds
  • Ear Discomfort
