Whether scheduling an appointment for hearing disorders or hearing loss prevention, each patient can rest assured that no stone will be left unturned in the care process.
In the new era of Over-The-Counter hearing aids, “hearing care” resources are seemingly everywhere. From websites to storefronts, promises of improved hearing in background noise, reduced tinnitus, and lower costs abound. Often these promises begin with a simple hearing screening consisting of a few beeping sounds and very few questions addressing demographics and hearing complaints. Sounds great, right? (pun intended)…
The reality is that hearing is much more complex than other sensory systems in the body, and there are many reasons someone could be experiencing hearing loss, tinnitus, difficulty hearing in background noise, dizziness, or other issues. As such, overly-simplified screening methods and cheaper devices are not always the proper answer.
While it’s true that many individuals merely require an appointment with an audiologist for amplification, disorder therapy, or hearing loss prevention, others may require additional attention from audiologists or physicians to address underlying medical causes.
This is where Tuned is making a difference. By partnering with expert audiologists across the United States and providing them with the most highly validated hearing screening tools available, Tuned puts the actual needs of patients first.
As one example, part of the screening process includes a validated questionnaire that is over 85% accurate in identifying the need for referral for over 104 ear-related medical issues. Tuned doesn’t stop there, however. In order to give each patient the individualized care needed, a consultation with an audiologist to guide and direct each patient plays an invaluable role in the care process.
Whether scheduling an appointment for hearing disorders or hearing loss prevention, each patient can rest assured that no stone will be left unturned in the care process. By being connected with doctors of audiology, each individual receives the level of care that their ears need and deserve.
