Beltone Hearing Care Centre provides services outside of the office. Sometimes making a physical appointment can be impossible. With remote hearing care, you can bring the professionalism of a (registered hearing instrument practitioner) RHIP directly into your home.
COVID protocols are still in effect for some areas. That means appointment-only visiting hours, limited spots available and different operating hours. Time flexibility is one of the reasons remote hearing services was created.
No one should be forced to live with bad hearing health, especially when there are other health issues to be concerned about. And time is valuable to everyone, so putting a hard limit on it becomes problematic. Remote hearing care is the solution to this problem if you’re currently living under COVID protocols. The only requirement is an internet-capable device and a time of your choosing.
Disabled patients were some of the biggest proponents for remote hearing care. The majority of their main care was already switching to virtual services, and hearing care was the only one lagging behind. When remote hearing care rolled out, it went far beyond the expectations of everyone involved.
Since other health services made the first move, virtual hearing care already had the blueprint for success. Combined with disabled access at physical locations, the hearing care industry has fully realized the importance of meeting the needs of people with disabilities.
Remote hearing care is also known as Teleaudiology. The technology lets you attend appointments at home based on a schedule of your choosing. Remote care allows a RHIP to check up on your current progress, adjust hearing aids and even provide counselling.
Patients that have never had an appointment with a RHIP will find virtual meetings a great way to get acquainted with the expectations. A quick session will lower anxiety, and a few answered questions will make things better for all.
Patients that have received hearing aids can use remote services to do follow-ups. These small check-ins save time and prevent you from having to make an appointment for short sessions. For some individuals, these small check-ups between actual physical appointments complete the treatment experience. Make sure to consult your RHIP before booking an appointment to find out which services are available in your area.
