EHDI Pediatric Audiology Link to Services: National Directory Will Launch Later This Year
The EHDI Pediatric Audiology Link to Services (PALS) Directory will be populated with facilities that employ licensed audiologists and have the appropriate equipment to carry out the pediatric services they provide. The EHDI PALS Directory will not and cannot guarantee the quality of services provided; however, the survey questions are based on best practice and will allow for a standardization of information across states. Additionally, each state will have the opportunity to note those facilities that have met state approval, if such approval exists.
Additional details will be available as the launch date approaches. The EHDI PALS Directory is a significant, collaborative effort with the potential for great success.
