Primary Channels for Summus Hearing Solutions 

Learn more about the four primary channels that benefit from Summus Hearing Solutions, the first provider of reliable hearing health technology. 

  • PHARMACIES: Build Your Hearing Health Network

    Pharmacies as trusted sources of healthcare are important (and new) providers of hearing health.

    At least 70% of your patients will benefit from understanding their hearing status and over 50% will be candidates for products you already sell or can be supplied reliably via Summus’s virtual product fulfilment process.

    As no additional inventory is required and set up charges are either modest (should the in-store the Ultimate Kiosk platform be installed) or negligible (in the case of the TeTo platform of your website), significant new revenue streams can be added.

  • FAMILY PHYSICIANS: Add Hearing Health for Most of Your Patients

    Family doctors are the obvious gatekeepers for hearing health yet many have not traditionally provided such service.

    Growing awareness of its importance and the advent of telemedicine as a new prerequisite for progressive medical practices is changing that calculus.

    Clinics can subscribe for Summus hearing testing protocols via partnered EMR’s or another virtual care portal.

    The combination of pure tone and speech testing plus access to the patient’s chart is usually a billable service.

  • MUSICIANS: Monitor Hearing Health & Rehabilitation

    Those in the music business are subject to persistent sound and are therefore unusually vulnerable to hearing change and permanent loss.

    Using Summus’s innovative hearing test product to monitor one’s hearing status is an effective and inexpensive method to preserve or help rehabilitate hearing function.

    And a share of each subscription fee is donated to a well-known charity established to promote hearing health in the music business.

    Therein lies a double win!

  • AUDIOLOGISTS & H.I.S.: Expand Reach Through Telehealth

    Hearing clinics located in most communities have traditionally provided the front line for those with permanent hearing loss.

    Competing successfully in the emerging hearing marketplace, however, requires that they adapt by expanding their reach to attract new clientele as well as master the dictates of hearing telehealth.

    Both the Ultimate Kiosk and TeTo platforms are admirably suited for this through direct use and/or by partnering with other hearing health providers, particularly pharmacies and family physicians.

  • How is Summus Hearing Solutions different?

    Summus offers the only hearing testing process that is capable of delivering a self-administered pure tone test in 2-3 minutes that is interpreted by pattern and level using pattern recognition combined with machine learning/AI.

    Our self-administered testing, which can also include speech, is audiologically sound – in fact, it's the only 'smart' system on a health tech platform in the hearing healthcare market.

    In addition to our well-established kiosk platform, Summus solutions are accessible by browser and QR code using any device – tablet, computer, smart phone – connected to the Internet.

  • Can you provide more details about the Ultimate Kiosk technology?

    The enabling tablet (often set up as a kiosk) uses a calibrated headset to test and classify hearing by pattern and level consistent with professional standards.

    Its internet-based ecosystem is SaaS-based (Software as a Service) with an integrated database as well as detailed reporting and product marketing functionality.

    The test results are available to the patient and typically used onsite or received by email by professionals to assess a person’s hearing healthcare needs.

  • How does the TeTo app technology work?

    Testing is done at home or elsewhere via a direct internet link to the TeTo site using the consumer's own hardware (computer, tablet, smartphone with ear buds or headset).

    It tests and classifies hearing by pattern and level consistent with professional standards and also provides a ten-word speech test.

    The full report are emailed to the consumer and testing sponsor (if there is one) for electronic storage or printing.

    TeTo is very well suited for use on virtual platforms and EMR systems.

    TeTo is a hearing wellness program enabling consumers to decide what and when to do something about their hearing.
