Report outlines challenges for oral health
from The Hill
A new report on dental care calls for improving quality through better use of electronic health data, quality measures, payment incentives and expanded use of non-dental professionals to deliver care. The report, funded by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation and the DentaQuest Institute, tracks closely with similar studies in other medical specialties that have outlined ways to get the U.S. healthcare system to pay for quality rather than quantity. Unlike other types of medical care, however, oral health can't rely on Medicare to drive change.
