The Ida Institute
The Ida Institute is an independent, non-profit organization with the vision to foster a better understanding of the human dynamics of hearing loss.
Together with professionals from every area of hearing care we work to make patient centered care the preferred practice in clinic settings around the world. The tools you will discover on this website are a direct result of this collaborative effort. Ida tools are developed to empower hearing care professionals to engage with patients and in so doing, better address each patient’s needs.
Our website is also a free and open collaborative space where we invite you to share knowledge, information and resources.
We are funded through a grant from the Oticon Foundation.
