Telehealth Services From Salem Audiology Clinic
Meet with your hearing healthcare provider from your home
As we continue to navigate the current “new norm,” one thing remains the same, to serve our patients with the highest level of hearing care possible. Therefore, we offer services remotely through telehealth, which allows you to receive treatment from the convenience of your own home.
How telehealth works
Telehealth is a somewhat new health care extension. These days many of today’s computers and mobile devices have built-in cameras, along with many of the more modern hearing aid devices.
Instead of coming into our clinic for your appointment, we can now conduct appointments online. One of our Audiologists will call you on a compatible smartphone device, and you can take your appointment right inside your home. It is relatively simple and requires little technical knowledge on your part. All that’s needed to have your audio and working camera, then you can rest assured that your information is kept secure as we comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA). Of course, specific hearing health needs require an in-person appointment. But many issues can be successfully managed by meeting with us remotely.
To get started, all you’ll need is a working email address, high-speed internet connection, and a working camera on your mobile device.
Most importantly, telehealth allows you to comply with social distancing guidelines that are currently in place. Although our clinic is doing it’s best to screen all in-person patients before coming into our facilities. The ability to meet with your hearing health provider virtually means less worry about taking time off work, having to find a ride, or finding someone to take care of children or grandchildren.

Remote and Adjustments:
With today’s technology, we can now adjust your hearing aids remotely. You can discuss in real-time with your audiologist which settings are most comfortable, which is essential for those just beginning to use hearing aids.
Telehealth Compatible Hearing Aids
Many of the latest models of Phonak and Oticon hearing aids offer remote compatible support. Both use a convenient mobile app that connects the hearing aids to the provider, allowing them to make real-time adjustments from almost anywhere.
