This week’s Ask an Expert section in Audiology Online features Ida Institute Managing Director Lise Lotte Bundesen. The article presents different Ida tools as entry points to telehealth for professionals.
Addressing the question, “Can the Ida Institute help hearing care professionals get started with tele-audiology?” Lise Lotte talks about how Ida’s online telehealth platform, Ida Telecare, can support person-centered counseling and allows hearing care professionals to extend their services beyond the appointment.

The tools include an outline of the different ways clinicians can integrate telehealth into their work, whether they are already tech savvy or just getting started.
