Impact of Hearing Aids on Benefit & Quality of Life Changes

June 14, 2011

In our latest MarkeTrak VIII article in the June 2011 Hearing Journal we have updated the NCOA study. In the NCOA study we documented the differences between aided and unaided patients on a host of quality of life issues with inference that the differences were attributed to hearing aid usage.

In the MarkeTrak VIII study we specifically asked hearing aid owners to rate their hearing handicap reduction attributed to hearing aid usage as well as the impact of hearing aids on 14 quality of life factors. The key findings are as follows:

  • There is a strong relationship between quality hearing healthcare, benefit, and quality of life improvements.
  • Patients fit by hearing healthcare professionals (HHP) utilizing comprehensive best practices are six times more likely to have a positive impact on their patient's lives than HHPs using minimalist best practices.
  • The average benefit (hearing handicap improvement) achieved by patients with recent hearing aid technology is 55%.
  • 75% of patients report at least one of 14 areas of their life was improved by wearing hearing aids.
  • Eight out of ten hearing aid users are satisfied with the changes that have occurred in their lives specifically due to hearing aids.
  • Nine out of ten patients are projected to experience significant improvements in their quality of life once they experience a 70% reduction in their hearing handicap.
