Incorporating Outcomes Data and Patient-Centered Care in Clinical Decision-Making and Patient Counseling (PD102386)

Presenter(s): Lisa M Satterfield, MS, CCC-A
Course Description

Policymakers are pressing health care providers to track—and therefore get paid according to—patient outcomes. At the same time, patients are savvier and demanding more accountability from providers. This session explores how audiologists can incorporate patient function and outcomes data in clinical decision-making and patient counseling in order to stay relevant as the primary provider of hearing health care services.

This course is a recorded session from the online conference “Audiology 2017: Cutting-Edge Perspectives in Service Delivery for Older Adults.”
