Online Services for Hearing Rehabilitation

18th January 2022 @ 15.00 - 16.30

Hearing healthcare is developing rapidly and it is now possible to offer clients a virtual solution for those who are not able to meet up in person. Are these solutions just as good as a face-to-face consultation? What are the features included in these tools now, what are the limitations, and what new technology can we expect to be integrated in the future? 

Finally, we will discuss the use of client data in these platforms.

Oticon’s RemoteCare 

Johanne Rumley and Pernille Aaby Gade work as Clinical Research Audiologists in Centre for Applied Audiology Research, Oticon. They started their careers as students in the same team but now have many years of experiences as full-time researchers, where they find and communicate evidence for hearing technologies. They will present Oticon’s RemoteCare, a solution that lets the hearing care professional hold a virtual appointment with selected clients, including remotely adjust their hearing aids and perform In-situ Audiometry.

InHear – Innovation of Hearing Rehabilitation and Effects of Reform

The InHear project collaborates with 12 private hearing clinics, 5 public hearing clinics, and 3 private ENT specialist clinics and aims to investigate the safety and patient experienced treatment quality and satisfaction of a new digital assessment -and referral algorithm in Danish hearing healthcare. If proven safe, this new method has the potential to counter the impacts of the forecasted demographic changes such as +65 population growth, increasing numbers of hearing-impaired individuals over the next decades, and accelerated need for hearing rehabilitation. Alongside other promoting actions and remote care initiatives in hearing healthcare, InHEAR may contribute to remedy a situation where the hearing healthcare system as we know it may fail to accommodate the need for hearing rehabilitation in the future.
