How Remote Care can enhance patient care for cochlear implant and bone conduction recipients
Remote Check - a remote assessment tool for cochlear implant recipients
Remote Care benefits
Most adults with hearing loss would use remote care options if they were offered by their clinician. 1
For patients with a compatible Nucleus® or Kanso® Sound Processor*, Remote Check is a virtual assessment tool which helps you monitor their progress remotely and provide care when it’s needed.
Remote Check identifies issues you would look for during a clinic appointment4, helping to triage the patient – are they performing as expected, or do they need follow up?
You choose which patients to enroll in Remote Check and the activities you want them to do. Patients complete the Remote Check at a convenient time and place using the Nucleus Smart App on their compatible* smartphone.
Activities in a Remote Check
When surveyed, clinicians reported it took as little as ten minutes to review Remote Check results.5
Data from sound processor
For patients with a compatible Nucleus, Kanso or Baha® Sound Processor*, Remote Assist can help you provide convenient, real-time care through a scheduled video appointment.
During a Remote Assist session, you have the opportunity to assess how the patient is progressing, discuss any issues they are experiencing and optimise their hearing outcomes. You can also connect remotely to their sound processor to make adjustments.
Remote Care for Nucleus Sound Processors
Remote Check and Remote Assist can be offered to patients with a compatible Nucleus or Kanso Sound Processor, a compatible smartphone and the Nucleus Smart App.*
Remote Care for Baha 6 Max Sound Processors
Remote Assist enables the same fitting activities you would offer during a clinic appointment for patients with a Baha 6 Max Sound Processor, a compatible smartphone and the Baha Smart App.*
