No Contact, Expert Hearing Care Through Tele Audiology
Attending an in-office hearing care appointment is not always simple due to scheduling issues, travel problems, or the challenge of finding someone to care for dependents.
In addition, self-isolation, social distancing protocols, and various health concerns related to COVID-19 have made tele-audiology a viable, no-contact solution for ongoing hearing care.
What Is Tele Audiology?
Tele Audiology makes use of teleconferencing technology in order for patients to connect to their audiologists. Using the video camera on your Smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop and an internet connection, you can connect to your hearing care provider for a face-to-face consultation without having to come in for an office visit.
Though tele-audiology became a preferred means of no-contact consultations during the pandemic, it continues to provide a viable alternative for our patients who need a hearing care consultation but cannot attend an in-office appointment due to any number of unavoidable challenges.
Five Easy Steps Of A Tele Audiology Appointment
Scheduling a tele-audiology appointment is as easy as setting up an in-office appointment. There are five steps involved in the tele-audiology consultation process:
