As a hearing care professional, you’re well aware of the importance of properly treating hearing loss, and you know how hearing loss can affect a person’s overall health and quality of life. However, not all patients—even those with hearing loss—share this same understanding.
When you’re able to share the importance of treating hearing loss with your patients, they’re more likely to seek treatment and be compliant with your treatment recommendations. Sharing this information online, whether on your website or through social media, can also help motivate individuals with untreated hearing loss to seek out treatment from a hearing care professional like you.
According to a recent study conducted by researchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, older adults with untreated hearing loss incur higher healthcare costs over time. We’ve compiled important information and statistics from this study that you can easily share with your current and potential patients to emphasize the necessity of proper treatment for hearing loss.
From this study, it’s clear that untreated hearing loss not only affects a person’s quality of life, but also leads to significantly greater healthcare costs. With this information, you can easily share the importance of proper hearing loss treatment with patients—for not only their health, but their finances as well. Greater knowledge on this topic will help patients better understand the necessity of seeking treatment for hearing loss, and will also demonstrate your personal care and interest in their health and quality of life.
