Improve Your Patient Counseling with Data Logging in the Nucleus 6 System

To date, cochlear implant fittings have been completed in the clinic and then after a period of real-world use, the recipient returns for re-fitting. At that time, audiologists rely on feedback from the recipient or parent/caregiver on how, where, and when the device was used. There is only so much that can be learned by asking a recipient about his/her hearing experiences. It can often be difficult for someone to remember their experiences day-to-day and over an extended period of several months. Even “good reporters” often fail to note many of the pertinent details that are needed to help improve their experience.

To address this issue, only Cochlear has incorporated data logging into the Cochlear™ Nucleus® 6 System. Data logging provides objective data and information to help us support our Nucleus 6 patients, no matter who they are, in order to help them achieve their best possible individual outcomes.

It’s important to understand how the different data logs can help you in the counseling of your patients. In the video below, hear from Andrew Kendrick, Rehabilitation Manager, as he explains some of the counseling benefits of data logging in the Nucleus 6 System.

The data logging dashboard is presented for quick and intuitive access to the most important information on where and how the device is being used on a daily basis. By having the charts side-by-side, you’re able to compare the data logs easily and look for patterns.

Be confident that you have the information to start your next patient conversation with better insight.
