Yes Hearing Aids, No Dementia, Depression, and Falls

We have heard the concerning connections between untreated hearing loss and a host of other health conditions. There is always debate around these conversations about whether the link between hearing loss and say accelerated dementia is causal or otherwise.

One of the tried and true methods to ask this question more deliberately is to reintroduce function, hearing in this case, and observe the effects on the secondary conditions.

CODING AND REIMBURSEMENT | When and Why to Modify

Billing modifiers were created to provide additional information to the payer about the performed procedure(s) and help describe and/or qualify the services provided. There are common modifiers used by commercial payers and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), that indicate to the payer that the services provided have been altered in a way that is different than the ascribed definition of the billing code. For example, a modifier should be used when all of the tests in a bundled code were not performed or when only one ear was tested.

ARC19: Advances in Amplification

Hearing aid processing no longer operates under the assumption that the real-world listening environments are represented by simple laboratory test conditions, such as the talker of interest is in front with noise behind, or even that there is only a single talker of interest. In addition, the driving philosophy has shifted from treating a single complaint (e.g., understanding in noise) to holistically treating individuals across the full range of their real environments and experiences (e.g., connecting to an auditory world).

How to Effectively Access and Collaborate with Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Systems

Public health agencies, in conjunction with Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) programs, monitor the results of newborn screening outcomes, newborns with risk factors for the late onset of hearing loss, the prevalence of confirmed hearing loss, the type and degree of these losses, and the number of babies enrolled in services. A public health system is the best way for all of the parties providing hearing care to a child to have access to the results of the provided care.

Decoupling Professional Audiological Services from the Sale of Hearing Devices

Background

Helping adults manage hearing loss is by far the most fundamental aspect of audiology practice, making this the bread and butter of our profession. Hearing instruments play a crucial role in managing hearing loss in adults (Ftouh et al, 2018; Laplante-Lévesque et al, 2010).

Adult Group Aural Rehabilitation: Implementing a Successful Program

Over the years, there has been an expansion of group aural rehabilitation programs facilitated by audiologists to support new hearing aid users and their families. These programs focus on hearing aid use, the psychosocial aspects of living with hearing loss, collaborative problem solving, and the facilitation of communication strategies (Kricos, 2000). There are numerous advantages to offering group aural rehabilitation, but what makes a program successful?

Implementing Family-Centered Care in Adult Audiologic Rehabilitation: The Hows and Whys in Clinical Practice

More specifically, this article will (1) describe the principles of family-centered practice in adult audiologic rehabilitation, (2) summarize observations of family-centered behaviors in current audiologic rehabilitation, and (3) identify opportunities to increase the family-centeredness of adult audiologic rehabilitation. To address these aims, we will outline the research evidence behind family-centered care (FCC) (the why), and from this, describe how FCC might best be implemented in audiologic rehabilitation.
