By now perhaps the initial shock of the COVID-19 pandemic — and what it means for the U.S. consumer — has lessen. However, as the U.S. started to feel the full strength of the pandemic, many consumers focused on stock piling grocery and health items as well as switching to e-commerce for most non-essential buying. Now, just two to three months after the onset of the pandemic, we find ourselves – as business owners, healthcare professionals, and even patients and consumers — switching gears into our own “fight” mode. We are ready to get back to business.
From new patients to existing patients, expectations and behaviors related to hearing healthcare, hearing aid service, maintenance and overall interaction with your clinic have changed as a result of COVID19. The question now is: How do you meet your patients where they need you the most and continue providing quality hearing healthcare services to sustain not only their hearing journey but your business as well?
