Changes in Hearing Health Care Delivery: Practice Considerations for Dispensing Audiologists
May 21, 2013
8:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m. ET
Sponsored by SIG 8 Public Health Issues Related to Hearing and Balance
This live event chat will discuss the hearing health care changing business landscape, driven by many economic, technologic and accessibility factors. Increasingly consumers are seeking health information on the Web. Hearing aids are being sold direct-to-consumers with little or no audiologic services. To prepare you on the subject and help in forming questions to ask the experts, we recommend that you take a look at these three ASHA web pages: Paradigm Shift: The New World of Hearing Health Care Delivery, “What You Should Know Before Buying Hearing Aids Online”, Practice Considerations for Dispensing Audiologists. The following panelists will be available to answer questions:
- Lisa Satterfield, MA, CCC-A, Director, Health Care Regulatory Advocacy, ASHA
- Ingrida Lusis, Director, Federal and Political Advocacy, ASHA
- Stuart Trembath, MA, CCC-A, Chair, ASHA Health Care Economics Committee (HCEC) and Private Practice Owner
This free event is open to all ASHA members (it is not offered for CEUs).
