SIG 18 Perspectives Vol. 3, No. 1, April 2013

This theme for this issue is technology for telepractice. We begin with a review of the earliest work in telepractice and a call for readers to innovate new technologies and work to reduce barriers to implementing telepractice in communication sciences and disorders. The next two articles focus on current telepractice technologies. We discuss ASHA’s definition of telepractice, current telepractice delivery models, and recent technological changes. In addition, we discuss how to develop an audiology telepractice. Finally, we conclude with a look to the future, including descriptions of new and emerging telepractice technologies.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • explain the need for changes in health-care delivery and how lessons learned from some of the earliest work in telepractice, in addition to recent technology innovations, present opportunities to address this need
  • discuss various aspects of telepractice, including ASHA’s definition of telepractice, synchronous versus asynchronous technology, hardware versus software, telepractice security concerns, and cloud-computing
  • describe the necessary steps in developing an audiology telepractice, including considerations about patient needs, staffing, costs, and technical demands
  • describe current telepractice service delivery models and emerging technologies that promise change in the area of speech-language pathology
