Question

How can an online hearing screener engage prospective patients?

Answer

What is the online hearing screener?

We are living in the digital age and self-help is becoming the norm. The online hearing screener offers a way to quickly screen and validate the concerns of a person seeking help. It also engages the self-help consumer and encourages them to provide information to your practice.

The online hearing screener is designed to engage your digital audience, allowing them to screen their own hearing to validate their hearing concerns, and send them to your practice when treatment may be appropriate.

The screener will guide the tester through a series of questions about their hearing loss, and using their own headphones, the tester will complete a basic frequency threshold estimation test.

The online hearing screener uses the tester’s age range, responses to questions, and frequency information to generate a hearing result. Once complete, the results can range from Good, Fair, or Poor hearing.

 

Utilizing an online hearing screener for your practice

As consumers search for an online hearing test, are they finding your practice? Are you starting to think of ways an online hearing screener could work in your next campaign or website refresh?

Start by adding the online hearing screener to your practice’s website so you begin showing up in searches and further engage your digital visitors. This is as easy as adding your branding, selecting call-to-actions and copying the link from a dashboard.

You can customize and design your online hearing screener to create a practice-branded screener. It is available in multiple languages, allowing you to target a larger audience and support your community’s needs. 

Plus, you can create multiple screeners to support individual marketing campaigns. Once set up, you can put the screener to work for you 24/7 to engage prospects.

There are many opportunities to drive leads to your online hearing screener. Start by creating awareness on your social media channels and add QR codes to all of your marketing, business forms and advertising communications. Your audience simply scans the code with a smart phone and it takes them directly to your website to take the test.

Research has shown that there are known associations between hearing loss and cognitive abilities. Cognitive decline has been seen to be accelerated in people with hearing loss. Several hypotheses exist regarding the underlying mechanisms driving the described associations. Science is currently trying to find the most likely explanation. One of the more researched hypotheses is that impoverished auditory input leads to decreased cognition - So can hearing aids delay the issue? The session will give an overview of the current state of knowledge.
