Teleaudiology: It Shouldn’t Have to Take a Pandemic (WEB19720)

Presenter(s): Harvey B. Abrams, PhD
Course Description


Prior to 2020, a remote model of hearing health care had been applied primarily to remote populations and/or limited to hearing screening and counseling services. Now, in the face of a global pandemic that makes face-to-face services risky, there has been an urgent demand for more information about teleaudiology. This session will review the evolution of teleaudiology, including provider and patient attitudes concerning the perceived benefits, disadvantages, and outcomes associated with remote audiologic care. The speaker will describe an existing, commercial, patient-centered teleaudiology model of hearing health care that is designed to increase accessibility and reduce cost while maintaining the audiologist’s central role as a critical component of care throughout the patient journey.

This course is a recorded session from the 2020 Audiology Online Conference "Evolving Clinical Practice: Present and Future Considerations."
