On Tuesday, April 18, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission held an all-day workshop, "Now Hear This: Competition, Innovation, and Consumer Protection Issues in Hearing Health Care." The topics discussed ranged from hearing healthcare innovations in treatment and technology to current federal and state regulations to consumers perspectives, and infused presentations from related federal agencies on their relationships with hearing health care oversight.
There were competing messages shared throughout the day. On one side, providers and industry generally supported the role of the hearing healthcare professional in the provision of care and sharing the many technological advancements that have taken place in recent years. On the other side, those representing consumer electronics and consumers cited FDA and state regulations as a barrier to access and cost, and logged their strong support for an over the counter hearing aid delivery model. IHS President Rick Giles, ACA, BC-HIS, did a superb job of sharing the perspectives of IHS and hearing aid specialists nationwide through his participation on the regulatory panel.
