Digital health and person-centered care are unquestionably linked in today's Australian healthcare landscape. Teleaudiology is the application of digital health in the field of audiology, and it has become a popular component of standard audiological care. Behavior modification is essential in audiology intervention. Guidance on achieving behavior change, which is dependent on digitally enabled intervention, is a valuable resource when used in tandem to achieve person-centered care. The aim of this review is to determine whether teleaudiology achieves person-centered care. A qualitative review was conducted, followed by mapping and analysis. Analysis identified evidence of teleaudiology use, and ascertained guiding principles are appropriate to behavior change dependent digital intervention supported or enabled person-centered care. In conclusion, teleaudiology will continue to be a promising technology for promoting relatedness, a positive user experience, confidence and capability, and appropriate levels of autonomy for the user to choose from among the person-centered care options available
