Through the years, society and how it sources information has changed. There was once a time when consumers didn’t take to the internet to get information on their conditions or symptoms. Now, that is not the case.
According to a 2013 PEW Research study, approximately 86 percent of patients will turn to the internet to conduct health-related research before booking an appointment with a health-care provider (Fox and Duggan, 2013). That number is ever growing.
That is why the American Academy of Audiology Foundation started the “Find an Audiologist” fundraising campaign to support Academy efforts to facilitate increased search engine optimization to connect you (our professional members) to consumers seeking help for their hearing and balance needs.
To continue our efforts, we need your input. Take the quick poll below to tell us if you find value in the Find an Audiologist Directory as a member benefit.
