HearCare MED-EL

Remote Care and Fitting

If you live far from the clinic or find it inconvenient to take time off of work or school, then remote fitting with the HearCare app could be perfect for you. Connecting with your clinic in the app allows you to get new audio processor configurations from the comfort of your own home—or wherever you are.

And you don’t need to arrange a time with your audiologist either. Simply install the new configuration they send you whenever you have a few free minutes and an internet connection.

Remote Care and Fitting

Configuration Backup

Sometimes you may want to go back to your last configuration after installing a new one. No problem. The backup of your previous configuration is available to you in the MED-EL Cloud for 14 days. And if you’d like to go back to it after more than 14 days, your clinician can send older configurations to you via the HearCare app.

And sometimes accidents happen. If your audio processor is damaged, you can install your configuration backup on a replacement processor.** That way you’ll have less hearing downtime.

Configuration Backup

System Checks

Have peace of mind knowing your implant and audio processor are working correctly without having to visit your clinician. Just perform checks within the app. Easy-to-understand messages along with a color-coded symbols let you know that your device is working properly or what to do if there is an issue.

If there is an active Remote Care connection between you and your clinic, your clinician will receive the results automatically, and you can avoid the hassle of going to the clinic.

System Checks

Clinic Management

Accept clinic requests at the press of a button so that your clinicians can send you configurations, receive system check results, and more. With the HearCare app, you have full control of your hearing care: you can easily remove clinics if you switch to a new one. And you can choose to stop sharing data whenever you’d like.

Clinic Management

Guardian Roles
