Tinnitus patients are in need of improved access to care, Fuel Medical and Treble Health step up

This week, Fuel Medical Group, a  U.S. business advisory company for ENT and audiology clinics, and Treble Health have announced a new partnership to extend access to Treble Health’s audiology telemedicine service for all Fuel member Audiology & ENT clinics. 

From February 2023, Fuel members will be able to expand their patient service offerings to include advanced tinnitus care. Through the partnership, Treble Health will provide 1-on-1 specialist care for people living with tinnitus. Members will be able to provide their patients direct access to Treble’s team of leading audiologists with telehealth services that incorporate aspects of Tinnitus Retraining Therapy, mindfulness and health coaching.

As a long time provider of award-winning tools, insights and actionable solutions, Fuel’s partnership with Treble Health is one more way they are helping members enhance practice performance and improve patient outcomes. 

The World Health Organization reports as many as 42.7% of the global population experience tinnitus. The condition is not well understood and, left unmanaged, can have a significant impact on mental health and quality of life, presenting a significant unmet need for those affected.

“We’re really excited to partner with Fuel Medical to provide science-backed telehealth solutions for tinnitus patients. Fuel is hands down the best ENT business advisory company out there, and we have an opportunity to work with their members to help individuals manage tinnitus better than ever before,” says Treble Health CEO, Ben Thompson, AuD. “Together, we will offer an effective solution to an underserved population of patients.”

Sharing Dr. Thompson’s enthusiasm for the partnership, Fuel’s Director of Strategic Initiatives, Dan Quall, MS, CCC-A, said: “We’re excited about our partnership with Treble Health knowing they have a team of tinnitus experts delivering world class tinnitus treatment and support. Having instant access to specialists at the forefront of tinnitus care allows our members to enhance their service offerings and provide relief to those suffering with tinnitus.”
