It’s hard to follow doctors’ orders when you cannot hear them!
A SPECIAL REPORT, produced by The Hearing Review and sponsored by Hamilton CapTel, looks at the emerging new world of “value-based” or “outcomes-based” reimbursement models in medicine, and how they may end up revolutionizing audiology and hearing healthcare. Hearing and Value-based Healthcare details how physicians are now realizing that patients who can hear their recommendations—as well as the recommendations of nurses, medical assistants, and follow-up care specialists—are far more likely to experience better outcomes and be satisfied with their treatment and aftercare. Additionally, the emergence of hearing health and its associations with comorbidities may also become an important part of the “big picture” of outcomes-based reimbursement.
Featuring comments from leading experts in medicine and audiology—including John Bakke, MD, Barbara Weinstein, PhD, Gabrielle Saunders, PhD, and David Blanchard—Hearing and Value-based Healthcare doubles as an educational resource for hearing care professionals and an excellent resource for any physician outreach and referral program.
