Oswald, Director and Founder of HNN commented “Digital signage is brand new to this space, and the benefits couldn’t be more significant today. HNN is helping hearing healthcare professionals to strengthen brand and hearing awareness, as well as, increase revenues. Simply put HNN acts as ‘Your Silent Partner’ by engaging and informing the patient prior to their clinical examination.”

HNN, in partnership with ClearSounds, the premier provider of assisted hearing devices plans to deploy HNN into hundreds of clinics in 2011. ClearSounds has already begun accepting subscribers and timing couldn’t be more relevant as the hearing care industry moves into the digital era.

Part of our efforts is to create awareness within these regions and offer this type of technology to improve efficiency and education and ultimately bring more cohesiveness between the clinics external marketing initiatives and the patient experience internally.” commented Brad Dodson, Director of Business Development for ClearSounds Communications Inc.
