Official Blog of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
Imagine sitting down with your family in a restaurant for a meal together. Everyone is gathered around the table when suddenly, you can’t hear your spouse. Your server comes up and you think she is asking you if you’d like to have something to drink — but it’s not clear. You can’t hear normally and your hearing aid needs to be adjusted. What do you do in that situation?
When this happened recently to a Veteran patient at the Cleveland VAMC, he immediately called his audiologist, Christopher Galizio, who was able to adjust the Veteran’s hearing aid remotely through the new Hearing Aid Distance Fitting Application (HADFA). The issue was resolved quickly and essentially at the moment the Veteran was having difficulty, allowing him to get back to his meal with his family.
