When you get in the field, setting up your own practice can be challenging if you don't know a lot about the tools of the trade. Your audiometer is going to be one of the most important tools for diagnosing and treating issues.
Here is what you need to think about when you're considering buying one.
Customers are the lifeblood of any business whether established or new. While Audiologists and doctors will be focused on patients occupational/industrial health companies will be looking for clients (who have patients). Either way, you need more of them.
The audiometric booth has long been the standard in audiometry and for good reason. Without it, we would not have the sound blocking that makes accurate hearing assessment possible as noise would interfere with the tones presented and patients would not be able to respond correctly.
“Audiology Practice Space Design’’ is a bit of an unusual topic, especially for clinical audiologists, yet it is an important one.
Times are changing, especially in healthcare. Audiologists are trained specialists in the auditory system and are well prepared for the clinical aspect of their practice. While most audiologists are trained to work IN a practice, many are not as skilled in working ON their practice.
So you’ve got the perfect location and you have your plan down to a T. You’ve procured all the necessary equipment and are ready to hit the ground running. But then you realize that referrals are not enough to keep business flowing. Time to get marketing. But how do you stay on the right side of ethics.
We know that running a practice or any business is tough. While we can’t magic away all of your problems at once, we can help with a few of them and help lighten the load. The KUDUwave already goes a long way in doing this and the software is no different.
At first glance, this title may seem like a redundant statement, but, in reality, these are vastly different concepts and the sooner we address them the better. Let us first remind ourselves of what a soundbooth is actually for.
There is little consensus among standards for sound booths globally, there are also many countries where standards don't exist and where they do, they can differ from state to state and may never actually be enforced at all. With that said, there is one overarching concept that I am sure we can all agree on.
If you have ever had a conference call you will likely understand the frustration of being a part of a broken conversation in which you cannot participate. This video sums it up perfectly and may give you a chuckle.
YES, the Kuduwave™ complies with all required standards as an audiometer. But lets look deeper into just how we comply to the South African National Standard (SANS) as they pertain to occupational health, thanks to a report by Dr. Anita Edwards (at the time from the CSIR)
Like it or not, audiology is changing, and the challenge to stay relevant is real. But, with change comes opportunity. You need to trust that change is not only constant but necessary and that moving with the times rather than against them is the best plan of action. But how?
As a general rule of life and technology, in particular, tradition eventually takes a backseat to innovation, convenience, and mobility every single time. Examples of this are all around us, in every industry — a prime example being Landline Telephones in America. In 2005, 90% American households had a landline phone. Cut to December 2016, and the figure dropped to less than 46%, as per the estimates from the National Health Interview Survey July-Dec 2016.
What could possibly be in common between astronauts living on the International Space Station (ISS) and people eking out a living in rural sub-Saharan Africa? It’s not just isolation that joins these two sets of seemingly contrasting faces of humanity. Ironically enough, it is access to high-quality hearing health care.
