American Institute of Balance (AIB) & FYZICAL: End-to-End Balance Strategies in Two Strategic Partnerships

With one out of four older adults averaging a fall per year and a total industry medical cost upwards of $50 billion1, if you’re not offering some level of balance services to your patients, you’re narrowing their solutions to holistic health care. This couldn’t be more imperative in the audiology arena, with the vestibular system so intertwined with hearing processes.

The beauty of our strategic partnerships with AIB and FYZICAL is that our members have the opportunity to cover both sides of the operational coin, with both nationally recognized services complementing one another and adding a value-based care benefit to your patients’ experiences.

For members in need of implementing balance services and physical therapy, FYZICAL is a best-in-class, progressive partner with a 99% balance improvement success rate. And for those with an existing balance solution, our partnership access to AIB’s award-winning clinical protocols and certification tracks can support your balance program in becoming a more robust ancillary service.
