Telehealth is at the forefront of all healthcare, including healthcare for hearing aid users. TeleCare from Signia is a smartphone application designed to ensure a continuous and secure communication channel between the audiologist and the patient. The connection facilitates communication, professional care, wearer engagement, remote consultations and fine-tuning adjustments. Clinical research reveals that TeleCare not only enhances post-fitting communication with the audiologist, strengthens the “doctor/patient” relationship, but also improves patient satisfaction with their hearing instruments.
