Phonak launches eAudiology webinar series


Phonak eAudiology webinars
Dr. Danielle Glista

The webinars are developed and presented in close collaboration with renowned international experts. The goal is to support hearing care professionals in clinical practice through the digital transformation and in integrating eAudiology solutions into their practice. The first lecture by Dr. Danielle Glista is scheduled for May 9, 2018.

Digital transformation is currently reshaping the healthcare industry landscape. New telehealth or e-health technologies enable patients to access care from the comfort and convenience of their homes, their social environments and even from remote locations where the distances to hospitals and healthcare providers are great.

“This change is also happening in audiology, and it will have an impact on the way hearing care is provided in the future”, said Ora Buerkli, Vice President of Global Audiology at Phonak. “We want to support hearing care professionals through this extension of service provision. By offering up to date, evidence-based and product neutral information, we aim to empower hearing care professionals to embrace digital hearing healthcare and benefit from this new addition to service delivery.”

Monthly lecture series starting from May

Earlier this year, Phonak assembled thought leaders in eAudiology to discuss the digital transformation in audiology and to identify ways to support the field in integrating new technology solutions into clinical practice. Based on the insights gained in this meeting, chaired by Professor Joseph Montano, Phonak developed an online lecture series on eAudiology. Starting in May, a total of 12 monthly webinars with experts in the field are scheduled.

The first lecture, “An introduction to eAudiology”, will be presented by Dr. Danielle Glista from the National Centre for Audiology at Western University, London, Ontario, Canada, on May 9, 2018 at 11 a.m. GMT. Further experts to host a webinar include Dr. Gurjit Singh, Dr. Joseph Montano, and Dr. Melanie Ferguson.

As a further result of the expert meeting, a consensus paper for hearing care professionals in clinical practice is being developed and planned for publication in September.
