Learner Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web Seminar will be able to:
- Describe how economic and marketing dynamics have spawned changes in service delivery of hearing healthcare.

- Apply strategies that increase audiology awareness, service and technology adoption rates, and, ultimately, intra- and inter-professional viability in the healthcare space.
Description: The landscape of the US healthcare environment has transformed markedly over the past decade. Much of this transformation is being driven by a new generation of idealistic consumers. In hearing healthcare, these consumer-driven demands have and will continue to shape the demand and, ultimately the provider-based supply, of audiological services and technologies (including direct-to-consumer). The purpose of this presentation is to enlighten the audience with an understanding of the new age, healthcare consumer. This discussion will include a comparison of the traditional and recently modified segments of service delivery, change in consumer ideology from the medical model to the retail model, and importance of self-efficacy and patient-centeredness. This webinar will provide insights on the practice management opportunities to serve this new genre of listener with impaired hearing.
