Dr Cliff Olson has announced the launch of HearingUp—a new website that provides a home for all of Dr Cliff’s new educational content, as well as his library of YouTube videos, and the new HearingUp Provider Network. Dr Cliff’s videos provide information on “the latest hearing aids, tinnitus, hearing loss research, and best practices for the audiology and hearing aid industry.” HearingUp will allow Dr Cliff to reach a larger audience and educate even more consumers about their hearing loss and treatment options.
“Individuals with hearing loss are constantly searching online for high-quality, reputable information about hearing aids and audiologic care” said Dr Cliff. “I want HearingUp to be a reliable source of information that consumers can trust.”
In addition to new Dr Cliff content, HearingUp will also be the new home of the Best Practice Pro Network, now referred to as the “HearingUp Network by Dr Cliff”. The HearingUp website will help make it easier for consumers to find a local hearing care professional offering Best Practice audiologic care, according to the announcement.
Depending on which expert you ask, it is estimated that only 10% to 30% of hearing care professionals adhere to Best Practice guidelines when providing audiologic care for adult hearing impairment. This means that the majority of individuals with hearing loss are not receiving the quality of care that they deserve, Dr Cliff said.
“There are a number of accomplishments in my life that I am truly proud of, none of them more than the creation of the HearingUp Provider Network. From Day One as a practicing audiologist, I recognized that the best way to ensure exceptional treatment outcomes with hearing aids was to follow comprehensive Best Practices. Best Practice guidelines are the fundamentals that allow a hearing care professional to ensure that their patients are capable of hearing their absolute best with hearing aids,” said Dr Cliff.
Before the Network was created in 2019, there was no easy way for consumers to ensure that their hearing care professional was going to follow Best Practices while administering care. Now, the HearingUp Network is “the easiest way to find a hearing care professional who follows comprehensive Best Practices.”
Dr Cliff said, “With the switch to the new HearingUp brand, we will be able to expand our reach to the hearing loss community and drive the adoption of Best Practices by more hearing care professionals throughout the world. I will not stop until every individual with hearing loss has access to an excellent hearing care professional who follows Best Practices.”
