The objective is to analyze the diagnostic process for the children that end up with an ordinary hearing aid or a Cochlear Implant (an advanced hearing aid for severely affected hearing impaired and deaf). The precise goal is to evaluate whether an optimization of the process is needed. The investigation is a follow-up to the country-wide hearing screening started earlier.

The database has been running since November 2009.

The database is used by the Hearing Clinic in Odense and the birthplaces department D in Svendborg and departments D and H in Odense, where the Hearing Screening is performed.
