Alternative delivery models

The hearing health field is adding telehealth and self-diagnosis/self-treatment as alternatives to traditional hearing healthcare delivery; there is a need for guidelines and outcomes for best practices with these new delivery approaches.  The goal of this objective is to determine the factors of success for the alternative delivery models of tele-audiology and self-direction for audiological assessment and treatment.  A number of success factors will be defined for both of these models.
