How does Otosuite integration work? How does it support day-to-day audiology?
Jeanette Fitzke, AuD: Otosuite® is the shared interface for all Otometrics hearing assessment and fitting solutions. It makes testing and data management more efficient, accurate and convenient.
Having several pieces of equipment that work together optimizes your workflow and gives you more time to spend counseling or just getting to know your patients. Otosuite helps save time because everything you need is available in one platform. Audiometry For a New Era discusses the benefits of utilizing a PC-based audiometer such as the Madsen Astera². As mentioned, it’s an easy transition from the audiometer to other pieces of equipment such as probe microphone measures (PMM) all from one software platform. Otosuite even allows you to test and provide patient counseling in the booth because of touch screen control options that are available
Jackie Phillips, AuD: Workflow efficiency is definitely one benefit. Integrated software and equipment help make the most of your time and hearing care expertise because Otosuite provides a single point of entry to conduct tests. It allows you to progress seamlessly from tympanometry to OAE and then to audiometry in a single, uninterrupted session. The course Computer Integration for the Modern Clinic describes the benefits of utilizing a computerized platform as well as provides a short tutorial on how to navigate the software.
Angela Flores, AuD: Because Otosuite is Noah-compatible, patient data loads quickly and test results (audiograms, tympanograms, OAE results, etc.) are automatically saved to the digital patient record in Noah. By using an integrated system to support the full patient journey, audiologists can streamline the workflow and spend more time counseling patients and families. The article Pediatric Care in the Digital Age provides a step-by-step comparison for testing and fitting children with standalone vs. pc-based equipment.
We discussed the practical benefits of an integrated clinic in detail in our recent interview.
