Instructional Level: Intermediate
This session will describe Audioscan’s VerifitLINK, an automated fit-to-target tool that offers simplified verification for clinicians. Through a combination of lecture and demonstration techniques, the benefits of this new verification approach relative to traditional manual methods will be highlighted along with key procedural considerations to increase the likelihood of measurement accuracy. Findings from a recent collaborative study investigating VerifitLINK as integrated into one manufacturer’s hearing aid fitting software will also be reviewed along with implications for clinical practice.
