Research & Innovation
Audiologists within Children's Center for Communication Enhancement (CCE) have completed a universal switch-over to all-electronic evaluation and reportage. Thanks to Tablet PCs that connect directly into audiometers and convert handwritten notes into text, audiograms and reports may be uploaded immediately. If desired, a paper copy may be printed out for patient families immediately following an evaluation. The process will streamline the addition of new information into patient records, reduce errors in transcription and decrease the chances of misinterpretation of data and reports between clinicians. Children’s 20 audiologists conduct approximately 10,000 audiograms per year.
