Your Hearing Network (YHN)—a national network of independent hearing care providers—has announced a long-term strategy to enable William Demant’s US-based businesses to deliver innovative solutions that meet the needs and preferences of independent hearing care professionals in communities across the US. The national network of like-minded hearing healthcare professionals—fast approaching 5,000 affiliates according to YHN—is designed to allow independent providers to generate and maximize patient opportunities while maintaining practice autonomy.
By combining the best hearing products and the best business solutions, YHN is said to give independent practitioners an opportunity to thrive in an evolving marketplace of new categories, new legislation, and more competition from new channels, including online retailers. According to YHN, affiliates will have the freedom to choose from a menu of business solutions that include national lead generation programs, an outsourced call center, insurance claims verification, and professional educational resources.
“William Demant hearing devices, hearing implants, diagnostic instruments’ businesses, and value-added partners already offer hearing care professionals a universe of provider solutions and services, unparalleled in the hearing care industry,” said Mikael Worning, president of William Demant US. “Through YHN, we provide independent hearing care professionals access to even more opportunities for success.”
Strength in Numbers and Practice Autonomy
YHN is said to offer independent hearing care professionals increased practice autonomy by providing strength in numbers and access to resources such as Healthy Hearing, Oticon.com, and YourHearing.com, online destinations for patients with hearing loss.
YHN affiliates can choose from a variety of practice success tools:
- Your Opportunity Management Tool is designed to help convert prospects into leads by optimizing patient mix;
- Your Hearing Health Academy provides streamlined education for the hearing healthcare professional;
- Your Claims Solution allows affiliates to outsource insurance claims processing;
- Your National Call Center is designed to help ensure satisfied, loyal patients.
YHN affiliates can opt-in to access a broad group of patients through the YHN Managed Sales Network. They can work with any of the contracted plans or simply select only those managed sales programs that best fit their practice model.
Access to New Ideas and Innovation
According to YHN, affiliates will be among the first in the industry to benefit from services, such as Your Transportation Service, which helps address the estimated 25% of patients who do not arrive for appointments due to transportation. YHN recently signed an exclusive agreement with a national non-emergency medical transportation service for hospitals and medical clinics. Through this partnership, YHN hopes to enhance patient access and satisfaction levels by providing reliable, high-quality rides for patients to/from their scheduled appointments with hearing care professionals.
“Through continued collaboration and accessibility to new ideas and innovation, YHN will continue to equip independent hearing care professionals for success in the evolving hearing care industry,” Worning said.
