Review question / Objective: The aims of this review are to identify and assess the functionality of remote hearing assessment tools that are available on commercial app stores (e.g. Google Play) and online platforms and to systematically search the literature to determine whether any of the identified tools have been validated in peer-reviewed publications and report on the accuracy and reliability of those tools for which validation data do exist.
Condition being studied: As technologies advance and the number of active smartphone users increase (reaching about 3.5 billion users worldwide in 2020), remote health services using smartphone applications may improve access to, and uptake of, health care. The use of these applications may also bridge the demand gap in hearing health services and offer an alternative service delivery route for those who are at high risk for coronavirus-related morbidity and mortality. However, it is unknown whether all of these hearing assessment/ screening applications are validated or not.
