TITLE: Connected Audiology: Trends Informing Modern Audiology Care

ABSTRACT: With the integration of hearing aids, sensors, artificial intelligence, and constant connectivity, audiological clinical practice is evolving.  Long-term patient management requires personalization of services that cater to individuals and focus on patient benefits and satisfaction. Patient-driven healthcare is characterized by a collaborative approach that allows patients to receive support in even their most difficult environments. In this session, I will discuss the role of the audiologist in a connected clinic to improve outcomes throughout the patient journey.

We look forward to seeing you there!
