"The Hearing and Balance Center (HBC) in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Maryland Medical Center implemented the AudBase system in 2005. The Center operates in an academic medical center, with a three-fold mission: clinical care, education and research. The Center can be fast-paced, which can potentially increase error rates in documenting the results of diagnostic testing, which can impact clinical care. Furthermore, regulatory oversight in our setting makes accurate documentation essential. The AudBase system facilitates accuracy in documenting and reporting test results. The HBC receives referrals locally from geographically remote location; readable documentation is an important component of our clinical service. AudBase produces an easy-to-read audiogram and report with sufficient reporting space. AudBase also facilitates education and research. Report templates are comprehensive, and allow for consistency and accuracy when working with audiology interns. From the perspective of quality control and research, the data searching capabilities of the system enable us to quickly identify patients who are being seen for specific problems (e.g., patients coming to the Tinnitus and Hyperacusis Program) so that we can implement follow-up and/or conduct retrospective studies of population characteristics or treatment outcome. The Department of Otorhinolaryngology audiologists highly recommend the AudBase system"

"I cannot overstate the value of having AudBase in our clinic. We began using the software in our setting in 2006 and cannot imagine practicing without it. It offers a variety of reporting styles and options and is extremely user-friendly. We recently had the software interfaced with our hospital's electronic medical record system so that the patient's report can be sent directly to the medical record electronically, which has proven to be a huge time-saver for the audiology staff and wonderfully convenient for the nurses and physicians. We have received nothing but friendly, knowledgeable customer service. I highly recommend AudBase without hesitation."
