OTOsuite – the integrated audiology software platform from Otometrics – includes new functionality to streamline workflow for hearing care professionals.
Schaumburg, IL - November 1, 2016 – GN Otometrics, the leading global manufacturer of audiology instrumentation and software solutions announces the release of OTOsuite®4.81. The release includes new functionality to support AURICAL – the complete, modular hearing aid fitting and verification system and MADSEN Zodiac – the immittance solution that delivers control, confidence and efficiency in immittance testing.
“Modern, intuitive and easy to learn – OTOsuite supports the entire client journey, from diagnostics and counseling to fitting and verification from one application,” says Lars Bladt Rasmussen, product manager for OTOsuite. “We are excited about this release of OTOsuite as it delivers efficiency enhancements to the platform and products in OTOsuite that can benefit clinicians working with hearing aid fitting and verification and immittance testing.”
Included in this release are two new enhancements to AURICAL. First, the ProbeTube Assistant is functionality in AURICAL that guides hearing aid professionals to a correct position of the probe tube during probe mic measurements (PMM). Probe tube placement can be a challenging part of the hearing and verification process. Placed too shallow, your measurements become inaccurate. Placed too deep you may touch the eardrum. The ProbeTube Assistant in AURICAL provides on-screen guided placement of the probe tube so clinicians can be sure the probe tube is placed correctly. The ProbeTube Assistant is supported by a new Probe kit, stabilizing the probe during measurements.
In addition, OTOsuite 4.81 is prepared for IMC2, an upcoming industry standard, allowing fitting and measurement modules that support IMC2 to talk to each other directly. Once enabled by the industry, this will provide AURICAL users with a simplified and integrated fitting workflow, which includes seamless verification.
OTOsuite 4.81 also includes enhancements to the immittance solution MADSEN Zodiac such as the unique Tymp History feature that enables users to visualize all the tympanograms performed on a patient over time and stored in Noah or similar and compares them by a simple drag-and-drop function. A convenient functionality for instance in relation with surgery. Tymp History is available for all MADSEN Zodiac versions Quick Check, Diagnostic and Clinical and in OTOsuite only.
OTOsuite includes enhancements to the cross-product OTOsuite Reports module that enables even more flexibility in reporting immittance and PMM test data and results. “This new release of OTOsuite is the ideal solution for hearing care professionals looking for efficiency gains in fitting and verification and immittance testing,” says Lars Bladt Rasmussen. “OTOsuite keeps everything you need for the entire patient journey in one place allowing clinicians to work with their audiometer, OAE, video otoscope and immittance devices in one shared interface. OTOsuite integrates seamlessly with Noah and external Electronic Medical Records (EMR), so you can easily and safely transfer data to selected patient files, reducing errors – and saving time every day.”
OTOsuite 4.81 supports Windows 10 and is available for download today. A license key is required to access the ProbeTube Assistant.
