The challenges we now face as a consequence of the coronavirus pandemic are significantly greater than those of just a few months. We’ve all had to adapt to new ways of working and living, which were previously unimaginable.

But the measures set out by Governor Jay Inslee, which require everyone to “stay home, stay healthy,” have also caused everyone to come up with innovative ways to communicate with one another.

Sound Hearing Cloud – our brand-new video appointment service – is just one of the ways we’ve adapted to help patients in their time of need.

What is Sound Hearing Cloud?

The current movement restrictions have refashioned how all sorts of businesses and industries operate. And audiology is no different.

In most cases, patients would normally journey for miles to reach a clinic. Sound Hearing Cloud is a ground-breaking new service that means this isn’t necessary.

Using smartphones, computers, or tablets, patients can adopt this service to schedule a one-to-one call with a licensed audiologist. This means you’re never more than a few clicks away from getting the right advice you need to manage or cure a particular condition.

As hundreds of clinics close across the country, this is Sound Audiology’s way of making sure every person can gain trusted advice and guidance from a medical professional.

But it’s also a truly convenient model for hearing healthcare that we’re bringing into the future. We want to make sure Sound Hearing Cloud doesn’t just help people now but also enhances hearing healthcare options for many more once we return to normal conditions.

Who Can Use Sound Hearing Cloud?

Everyone – whether you’re a long-term patient or someone who hasn’t spoken to a doctor of audiology before – can take advantage of Sound Hearing Cloud.

Sound Audiology is offering new patients no-obligation 15-minute consultations, where you can get advanced guidance about a possible hearing condition or concern.

Whereas patients who are already part of the Sound Audiology family can use this service to arrange a check-up with their doctor, as they would in the clinics.

Sound Hearing Cloud makes use of “remote assist” technology. Through this software, someone with a state-of-the-art hearing device can request that their doctor make programming changes to its sensitivity and levels.

For those who are concerned that social distancing restrictions will stop them from addressing issues with their hearing, this is an ideal method to gain continuous help from a qualified professional.
