How does hearing health telemedicine work?
Similar to the telemedicine offered by physicians, this service enabls us to assist you with problems you may have involving hearing loss, hearing aid care, maintenance and adjustments, through a device that connects to the internet, such as a computer, tablet or mobile device.
What services are offered through hearing specialists?
To utilize telehealth services, you will schedule an appointment with a hearing provider. Before your appointment, you will log onto the telehealth platform, where you will be connected with your specialist. The scope of telemedicine services for hearing healthcare is still growing, but we can currently provide assistance on the following:
Hearing aid fine-tuning
If you already have hearing aids, we can use remote programming to view your current settings and make adjustments based on your past hearing test results. With this technology, we are able to help adjust volume controls, noise reduction, directional microphones and tone control.
Hearing aid maintenance
If you’re unsure how to take care of your hearing aids, we can help walk you through this process. From what tools you should be using to how frequently, we’re happy to ensure you are properly cleaning and maintaining your hearing aids.
