HEARING SOLUTIONS FOR EVERY NEED
Together, Phonak and Advanced Bionics offer the widest and most competitive range of hearing solutions in the market; from hearing aids and hearing accessories to cochlear implants.
With your help, most clients regain hearing and quality of life with optimally fit hearing aids. But not everyone is helped by hearing aids, and this is where cochlear implants can benefit both your clients and your practice. As a hearing care provider, you have the unique opportunity to differentiate your practice by counseling on all hearing loss treatment options and providing comprehensive services to support optimal performance.
What is the best course of action when your client’s hearing loss is above 60 dB and word recognition is falling below 60% even under optimal conditions*? What is your response when your client keeps returning with challenges hearing in spite of wearing some of the best fitted hearing aids on the market. What do you do when they ask you about other solutions? Are you talking to your clients about the most versatile and integrated cochlear implant solutions in your counseling?
Meet with Advanced Bionics and learn why and how you can integrate our cochlear implant solutions into your client counseling.

CAN A COCHLEAR IMPLANT HELP YOU?
WHY INTEGRATING ADVANCED BIONICS INTO YOUR PRACTICE MAKES SENSE – FOR YOUR CLIENTS, YOUR TEAM AND YOUR BUSINESS
Advanced Bionics aims to be the ideal hearing care partner for both you and your clients.
Our cochlear implant training program provides you and your team with the knowledge and tools needed to identify and support a potential cochlear implant candidate early on. Learn how to manage each client’s hearing journey while at the same time optimizing your clinical practice efficiency. Providing the right solution and treatment early on, is in everyone’s best interest.
If you already offer other cochlear implant brands or CI related services, integrating Advanced Bionics into your counseling provides clients with more choice and allows them to benefit from the competitive and easy to use bimodal solutions and accessories from Phonak.
At the same time, you get additional opportunities to diversify and distinguish your practice, expand your professional network and grow your client list.
What’s more, our CI programming software, Target CI, is based on the same platform as Phonak’s hearing aid fitting software - making it even easier and more intuitive to work with cochlear implants from Advanced Bionics.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF JOINING A NETWORK OF PROFESSIONALS AND HOW CAN AB SUPPORT YOU?
Widen your professional network and diversify your practice
Advanced Bionics helps create relationships between hearing care professionals and cochlear implant (CI) surgeons - supporting hearing care professionals in integrating CIs in their client counseling and, where relevant to your practice, providing an even wider range of audiological services.
This further positions you as the expert in hearing and the go-to practice for any hearing related challenges and objective counseling in your community. We support you with education, training, and tools in cochlear implant candidate identification and counseling, as well as local professional network events, access to CI Consumer Specialists, CI mentors, and much more.
Providing clients with more choice
If you already offer other cochlear implant brands or CI related services, integrating Advanced Bionics in your counseling means offering more choice and may help find the best and right solution for your clients. This also gives them access to all the benefits of the competitive and easy to use bimodal solutions and accessories from Phonak.
Providing lifetime care for CI clients with severe to profound hearing loss
When it comes to their hearing journey, you are a center of gravity for your clients. The relationship that you have established makes you best positioned to be their primary confidant and advisor throughout every step of their hearing journey.
When implantable technology is deemed to be the best choice, they will continue to benefit from the ongoing counseling and support that only you can provide.
Your cochlear implant clients are also likely to come to you when they need supplementary products and services such as a hearing aid on the contralateral ear, or accessories.
Integrating cochlear implants from Advanced Bionics and expanding your professional network can:
|Ensure more clients are provided with objective counseling, broadening their spectrum of solutions, treatment, and choice
|Help you find the right solution and treatment for more clients
|Expand your professional network further and grow your client list
|Continue to see and care for your clients throughout their hearing journey
|Further differentiate your practice by expanding your portfolio of brands, solutions, and/or services
|Benefit from additional training and educational opportunities, counseling tools and support
