The COVID-19 pandemic has touched everyone and changed the way Utahns interact in their daily lives. Governor Gary R. Herbert’s latest “Stay Safe, Stay Home” directive calls on businesses and individuals to help “flatten the curve” by restricting non-essential meetings between people.
At House of Hearing, we take our patients’ health and safety extremely seriously and are always seeking out new ways to ensure they get the best possible advice and treatment.
That’s why, today, we’re proud to be introducing an all-new service – “Tele Audiology.” This will give patients the same face-to-face contact that they would receive in a doctor’s office but delivered through a smartphone, tablet, or computer.
During 15-minute appointments, patients will gain all the hearing support they need during this challenging period in our state’s history.
So, What is Tele Audiology?
Instead of insisting that you see a doctor in person, “Tele Audiology” offers patients the opportunity to engage with their doctor through the camera function on a digital device.
Through this capability, individuals can receive expert assistance without having to make wholesale changes to their daily schedule or take undue risks during the current coronavirus pandemic.
During confidential appointments, individuals can discuss hearing health issues with a professional and gain life-changing, no-obligation advice on potential problems. Current patients can also arrange check-ups with their doctors through this service.
Impressively, those with state-of-the-art hearing aid technology can benefit from the remote programming feature. This allows audiologists to troubleshoot problems, modify a device’s sensitivity, and ensure it always performs to its greatest capacity.
