Question

What is Cochlear Link and how can it save clinics time?

Answer

Cochlear Link is a cloud-based application that is installed on clinic programming computers or network servers, which connects the clinic’s Cochlear’s database to the cloud. Cochlear Link can instantly and automatically send registration data to the cloud when new patient equipment is activated. This eliminates the need to enter patient registration details and equipment serial numbers manually.

After a patient is programmed, MAPs are uploaded and stored securely in the cloud. If a patient needs a replacement sound processor, they can call Cochlear directly and place a service request. Cochlear can then program a new sound processor with the patient’s latest MAP and directly ship it to them to get the patient back into sound faster.

Data shows that clinics using Cochlear Link complete 84% of service requests within 24 hours* and 87% of service requests are processed without clinic assistance.1

To get started follow these steps:

  1. Understand your computer setup
  2. Complete the Cochlear Link application
  3. Install Cochlear Link
