This presentation discusses the concept of Telehealth and its applicability to audiology. Telehealth was identified during the Ida Institutes Vision 2020 process as an important impact to consider in the future of audiology. The Institute developed the online resource titled Telecare, which consists of a number of patient tools and resources to assist in preparing for the first appointment, for follow up appointments and communication strategies for everyday life with a hearing loss. To assist audiologists in preparing for the future, the Ida Institute developed the tool, Fit For The Future, which allows the creation of a personal plan to embrace changes and use them to benefit your services and your clients.
