Description: Connexx is the programming software for the Signia hearing instruments. The technology allows for customizing the hearing instrument and the microphone to the individual`s needs. The product supports fitting the instrument and controlling frequency settings, microphone settings and controlling for other factors such as tinnitus. Additionally, the software maintains a history and trending of patient visits.

This technology saves patient data via a proprietary database component that is packaged with this product. A NOAH (SQL-based) database implementation is also used to measure hearing loss with audiogram and speech tests or loudness scaling.

Please note that previous versions of Connexx have legacy Siemens products built into this product as sub-components including SHS6 Common, SHS6 Fitting, and SHS6 Unity Fitting. The VA has a five year contract window with Siemens which allows VA to support older hearing devices. However, this necessitates supporting prior versions of this technology.
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
Section 508 Information: This technology has not been assessed by the Section 508 Office. The Implementer of this technology has the responsibility to ensure the version deployed is 508-compliant.
