Description: TeleHealth is a current buzz-word in all realms of the patient healthcare community that is gaining traction as fast as the technology and legislation will allow. Because of an indirect relationship between the increased patient need and the decrease in provider workforce, expansion into hearing healthcare is no exception. Hearing loss is an epidemic, growing as the aged population increases over time. Currently, there is a shortage of hearing care providers to adequately meet the anticipated hearing loss needs of the senior group now and in the future. The hearing care community must recognize that modern methods of service delivery is an answer to the accessibility issue.
