Success with hearing aids should not be a matter of chance.
Myth: Hearing aids don't work.
Fact: With technological advances, hearing aids do provide benefit for most people.
There are just six major manufacturers of hearing aids worldwide which means that the difference between success and disappointment with your hearing aids typically lies with the professional doing your fitting.
Yet most people have had no way of finding an effective hearing health provider with a demonstrable commitment to providing you with quality outcomes....until now.
Hearing health professionals use the EARtrak hearing aid satisfaction survey process to gather real-world, self-reported feedback from their patients. They use these results to improve quality in their practices, and that means providing better outcomes for you.

'Questionnaires of hearing aid outcomes capture patients' judgement of hearing aid benefit and satisfaction in real-world listening situations. For this reason, self-reports of outcome are usually considered to be the gold standard when it comes to measuring hearing aid outcomes because they capture success (or lack thereof) in everyday listening places.' - Brian Taylor, Quality in Audiology (2013)
