Look after your hearing at home with telehealth
Telehealth has been in the news a lot lately. As a result of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Government is allocating millions to a Medicare service that will deliver online health consultations and home-delivered medicine to people in home isolation or quarantine. We think it’s a brilliant initiative.
Did you know that we use telehealth to deliver hearing aids and personalised hearing care to thousands of people all across Australia? Read on to find out how.
Firstly, what is telehealth?
Telehealth—also known as “digital health”, “eHealth”, “remote care”, and “distance support”—is the practice of using the phone and internet to deliver health care.
How we use telehealth (we call it “teleaudiology”)
Our forward-thinking founders, professors Saunders and Blamey, wanted to find a way to make hearing aids and ongoing care accessible—and affordable—for more Australians.
When we launched in 2011, we were the first hearing aid company to use telehealth technology to help people buy hearing aids and receive expert support from home. We’ve won many awards for our approach, including the CSIRO Design Innovation Award.
Here’s everything you can do for your hearing without an in-person appointment:
