LaFiya Telehealth & Tyto Care Have Partnered To Improve Telemedicine In Nigeria


A partnership between LaFiya Telehealth and Israel’s Tyto Care will enable Nigeria physicians to examine, diagnose, and treat patients virtually beyond video consultations through the use of telemedicine. As a result of their partnership, they will be able to offer remote examinations with live streaming, information from Tyto Care Home kits, as well as a more precise and detailed prognosis and early diagnosis. This level of care goes beyond what can be offered via video consultations, and it improves access and quality of healthcare.

John Enoh, the founder, LaFiya Telehealth, mentioned that patients and consumers would be able to have access to digital prescriptions, drug delivery services, medical examinations and access to over 600 board certified medical doctors and specialists from Nigeria and abroad. The telemedicine services will be available 24/7 and they will also include prescription and referral services as needed and provided by LaFiya Telehealth.




The partnership with Tyto Care will enable the patients to examine and diagnose themselves using their Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered “TytoHome handheld examination device”. The device will be able to provide a better understanding of patient’s conditions, their need for treatment and the urgency to see a clinician, as well as be able to help clinician’s better triage on patients.

Escalated by the COVID-19 pandemic, the adoption of telemedicine services in developing and developed countries has been growing as people find solutions to safe and accessible healthcare. Telemedicine provides a solution to any deficits in healthcare professionals and reduces delays that may be experienced in accessing health care in different geographic locations.

“As COVID-19 wages war, and more patients and providers adopt telehealth and telemedicine, it’s critical that we accelerate the depth of care that can be provided at home to keep patients and medical professionals safe in Nigeria and around the world. We are excited to partner with Tyto Care to treat patients remotely with in-depth, physical examinations during video visits.”

LaFiya Telehealth has currently been integrated to 10 hospitals for referrals, over 10 medical lab centers, and 1,500 pharmacy stores across Nigeria with an option for prescribed medication home delivery or pickup at any of the pharmacy store closer to the patients. The founder of LaFiya Telehealth further added that the latest exclusive integrations and newly designed workflows will allow healthcare providers to clinically come closer than ever before to patients during telehealth encounters, allowing them to see, interact, examine and deliver care in ways that growingly replicate in-person care.

Dedi Gilad, the CEO and co-founder, Tyto Care, says, “By pairing the TytoHome handheld examination device with LaFiya Telehealth’s platform, healthcare solutions will be brought closer to consumers to provide the best home examination and diagnosis solutions. This will further revolutionize primary healthcare in Nigeria, as we contribute to improving health outcomes and experiences for both patients and clinicians.”
