Hearing Centers in India
The presents a brief history on the evolution of Hearing Health Care in India. March 3rd,witnessed the launch of the world report on hearing by the World Health Organization as part of the observation of world hearing day with a special theme - “Hearing Care for all.” With the estimated prevalence rates of 5.67%–16.5% among all disabilities in India, hearing impairment impacts the country's overall development with a significant economic burden. Hearing health care received more attention during the 1960s with the establishment of specialized nodal centers in 1964 in India. India witnessed a spurt in the growth of hearing health care sector during the 1980s with the development and application of technology. Currently, in India, there are both private and public domains in hearing care services with more than 6000 registered professionals in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology. With the vast diversity of population and culture, limitation of centers to the urban area, and lack of trained professionals in hearing health care in rural areas, there is a need to reach to the unreached population with hearing problems.
Advanced technology and internet connectivity and the use of smartphones among Indians have made telehealth and teleaudiological consultation a possibility. Teleaudiology encompasses many forms that are currently available today, from remote hearing aid programming through an app on a smartphone to comprehensive remote evaluations with patient and providers at distant sites .
