Vision 2020

In 2014, the Ida Institute began work on Vision 2020, our vision for what hearing healthcare will look like in the year 2020. Together with the help of 100 participants, we have worked towards enabling people worldwide to participate fully by creating accessible, valued hearing care. To make this possible, we looked at hearing care today, dreamed about tomorrow, and explored how to make the impossible happen. Here we are sharing the outputs and ideas from meetings, virtual calls, pre-assignments, and focus groups. We've cherry-picked the best videos, graphics, practical ideas, and grand visions for the future to help audiologists prepare for the changes that are coming. The year 2020 is few years away, but Vision 2020 begins today.
