ADA EarShot Webinar: Ground Hog Day--Dynamics, Disruptions and Making the Case for Change

Disruptions in technology and the changing health policy landscape surrounding hearing loss and audiology services will impact audiology practices and service delivery models going forward. Key stakeholders do not understand the differences between audiology services and those delivered elsewhere--in an era where both products and services tend to be readily commoditized. This session will discuss changes in the environment and the benefits of adopting new models of care that will differentiate audiology practices.

Join us for this innovative session on Tuesday, February 2nd from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EST.
