How Can I Tailor Reports Based on My Testing and My Referral Sources?

advancemarker_intermediate

 

 

line-separater

Audiologists work with a variety of referral sources; everything from ENT’s, pediatricians, general practitioners to a wide array of specialty physicians.  Tailoring a report that meets each of the different protocols and referral source preferences can be a time consuming task, and sometimes hard to keep straight.  GSI Suite™ is designed to help manage test and patient data, and can save you time and help keep your reports organized. 

Suite can be used as a stand-alone software or as a module of NOAH and communicates directly with GSI’s audiometers (AudioStar Pro™, Pello™, GSI 39™, GSI 61™), middle ear analyzers (TympStar Pro™, TympStar Classic™, GSI 39), and OAE devices (Corti™). This allows you to consolidate the results of all tests you do into a patient’s electronic file.  Suite will also allow you to pull audiometric and tympanometric data from non-GSI equipment, as long as it communicates with the public databases in NOAH.  Once you have all of your test data transferred to the patient file, you can use one of 20+ GSI designed report templates, or use our powerful report writing tool to customize a report specifically for the types of tests in your protocol, or specific to the needs of your referral source.  Suite lets you organize those reports into a favorites list so that the ones you use most often will be the easiest to access quickly.  You can also use Suite to help cut down on the time it takes to write comments with a tool to manage predefined comments.  Once you have completed the report using Suite, you can save to PDF, JPEG, TIFF or XPS to email, or attach to an EMR.

Suite is powerful tool that can be customized to meet the many reporting demands that come with a busy audiology office.  To find out more, check out our webinar, Get Creative with GSI Suite.

IS THERE A QUICK WAY TO ASSESS SPEECH-IN-NOISE FOR CHILDREN?

advancemarker_advanced

line-separater

The BKB-SIN is integrated on the GSI AudioStar Pro and the GSI Pello (with the Speech Plus license). The BKB-SIN is a speech-in-noise test very similar to the QuickSIN. Normative data was collected on normal hearing adults and children, using a 70 dBHl presentation level, presented binaurally. A 50 dBHL presentation level was used on patients with cochlear implants. To perform the test, press the “More” button and select “BKB-SIN”. On the display menu, select the age range of your patient to access the appropriate normative dataset. The age ranges are 5-6, 7-10, 11-14, and 15 & up (for adults). Present the sentences and score in the same way as QuickSIN. Store the results to obtain the SNR lost. The BKB-SIN can be administered to adults that might have difficulty with the longer sentences used with the QuickSIN.
