ASHA Glossary: Teleaudiology Clinical Technicians
Persons who, after appropriate training and demonstration of competency, provide patient/equipment interface support under the supervision of an ASHA-certified and licensed audiologist using secure real time and/or "store and forward" audio/video technology to deliver audiology services from a site located at a distance from the actual patient testing site. A TCT may also be an audiology assistant or other health care professional (e.g., licensed vocational nurse, bachelor's-prepared nurse, master's prepared nurse, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, etc.) who has additional training to serve in the role as a TCT and support teleaudiology service delivery under the supervision of an ASHA-certified and licensed audiologist.
