Houston Methodist Virtual Urgent Care Powered by TytoCare Technology
Record all your important vitals, from your temperature and heart rate to the sound of your lungs, and share them with our providers — 24/7, from wherever you are.
Houston Methodist Virtual Urgent Care powered by TytoCare technology puts the exam tools in your hands. With the TytoCare device, you can perform your own physical examination and share that data with our board-certified providers during your virtual visit, avoiding the drive and the waiting room. Our providers will then assess your condition, offer a diagnosis and treatment plan and prescribe medication, if necessary — all from the comfort and safety of your home.
Check heart rate
Capture your heart rate and share it with our providers using the stethoscope.
Take your temperature
Use the infrared basal thermometer to measure your body temperature.
Examine your ears
The otoscope lets our providers look inside your ears and examine your ear drums.
Assess your breathing
Using the stethoscope, our providers can listen to your breathing and provide a diagnosis.
Check for sore throat
Our providers can examine your throat and tonsils to determine if they’re sore from a cold or something more.
Show skin conditions
The high-definition camera captures images of your skin to help diagnose rashes and bug bites and monitor lesions.
