  • Description:
    Purpose:

    To describe an evaluation conducted by 39 state Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) programs on the reporting process and system usability for audiologists when reporting the hearing test results to the EHDI program and the barriers encountered during reporting.

    Method:

    Each author independently extracted numbers, percentages, and texts from the evaluation reports into an Excel spreadsheet, which then became the dataset. Authors then compared and cross-checked the datasets before coding. Texts conveying similar concepts were coded with the same name and organized into categories. Finally, thematic identification and analysis were performed when a theme(s) or concept(s) that pertained to similar challenges encountered by audiologists was identified and organized under a higher-order domain.

    Results:

    Some audiologists reported no barriers when reporting hearing test results to the state EHDI programs. Among those audiologists who reported barriers, the most recurrent barrier was a non-user-friendly data system design. The second most recurrent barrier was not having adequate administrative time to report data as a busy clinician. The third most recurrent barrier was an incomplete understanding of the state EHDI reporting requirements. Finally, the method audiologists were required to use when reporting results also posed some challenges, such as no internet connection in rural areas when required to report via an internet portal.

    Conclusion:

    Because of the wide variety of barriers faced by audiologists, multiple strategies to improve the reporting process would likely be beneficial.
