Acoustics — Hearing aid fitting management — Part 2: Tele-services as part of hearing aid fitting management (tHAFM)
This document is a supplement to ISO 21388 which applies to hearing aid fitting management (HAFM) services offered by hearing aid professionals (HAP). It focusses on tele-services which may substitute, or complement services defined in ISO 21388, and it defines services which shall be provided in the facilities of the HAP. Moreover, this document specifies important preconditions such as education, facilities and systems that are required to ensure proper tele-services. If not other stated all definitions and requirements of ISO 21388 also apply for this standard without further notice. Furthermore, it is tried to keep the structure if ISO 21388 to make it easier to use both standards together. It is recognized that certain populations with hearing loss such as children, persons with other disabilities or persons with implantable devices can require services outside the scope of this document.
Other assisted tele-services provided by non-hearing aid professionals, self-fitting, and other non-hearing care related will also be outside of the scope.
