As a hearing healthcare provider, has the need for medical clearance ever affected a patient from receiving hearing aids from you? Getting to the office can be difficult enough for many patients, especially if they are elderly. When they have to leave your office after an evaluation to receive medical clearance from a physician, the chances of them returning are, unfortunately, very low. They may have trouble finding a ride to their next appointment or they may end up buying hearing aids elsewhere. What if there was a way to not only make this process easier for your patients, but for you as well? Medical Hearing Consultants have launched a new hearing aid portal to make this a reality.
Introducing The Hearing Portal
If you have a patient who is motivated and ready to move forward with hearing aids, they can now connect with a physician in real-time with The Hearing Portal, according to an announcement from the company. Using The Hearing Portal video telehealth platform, patients gain “immediate clearance from a medical care provider during their visit with you.”
How The Hearing Portal Works
First, healthcare practitioners will perform their evaluations and, using the equipment provided by Medical Hearing Consultants, take pictures of the patient’s ear, ear canal, and of their audiogram.
Then, using Medical Hearing Consultants’ hearing aid portal, they will fill out the patient’s information and upload all the images taken during the examination. The patient will then have a brief telehealth consultation with a medical physician where they are screened for hearing disorders and, when medically indicated, given immediate medical clearance for hearing aids, according to the company’s announcement.
If you’re ready to see more patients, dispense more units, and help even more people experience better hearing, visit MedicalHearingConsultants.com to register for The Hearing Portal today.
