We've heard from several creative clinic owners who are using this time to "think outside of the booth". They are pondering ways to continue to offer their services even when the clinic doors are shut. We want to share what we hear, in the event that it is useful to you as well.
These are stressful and uncertain times. As we monitor the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, everyone should be concerned with minimizing the spread of infection. Doing everything possible to best protect patients, coworkers, themselves and their families. We are all in this together, and the following information can help provide guidance on best practices as they pertain to infection control.
How do you change the world? We believe change happens one day at a time, one person at a time. We can’t solve every problem out there, but something that we can do, here at SHOEBOX, is test people’s hearing.
At SHOEBOX, we’re proud of the reputation we’ve earned for helping to modernize occupational hearing testing. Thanks to mobile technology, we’ve dragged testing out of the literal dark ages (cramped, uncomfortable sound-proof booths) and made it easy, accessible, and more affordable. But an essential element of a compliant program is the review that must take place after testing has occurred.
To round out our solution for Occupational Hearing Testing, we now offer Audiology Review Services delivered by an international network of regionally licensed reviewers. We are introducing the SHOEBOX Audiology Review Network.
Incorporating mobile audiometry, including solo play audiometry, into your clinical toolbox can open new doors to successfully testing more patients, including young children.
