While remote service delivery has been around for several years, eAudiology (also known as teleaudiology) is becoming a daily reality for many audiologists, in large part due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This course discusses how eAudiology addresses the need for improving patient experience, providing innovative services, and increasing clinic efficiency. The speakers highlight how the recent advances in hearing aid remote programming fit with eAudiology, strategies for introducing eAudiology services to patients who can benefit from them, and how to best utilize eAudiology during and post-pandemic.
This course is part of the SIGnature Series, a collection of coursesdeveloped by volunteers from ASHA’s Special Interest Groups, who share practical, evidence-based suggestions and solutions based on their in-depth knowledge, clinical experiences, and passion for their specialty areas. This course was developed by SIG 8: Audiology and Public Health.
You will be able to:
- Describe the fundamental types of eAudiology that a practice could offer
- Explain benefits and limitations of remote hearing aid adjustments
- Describe one way to integrate a facet of eAudiology into your practice
