Oral Health Value-Based Care

Oral Health Value-based Care (OHVBC) strives to address the Quadruple Aim of improved patient experience, better health through improved outcomes, managed or reduced costs, and improved provider satisfaction. You’ll begin to consider whether your organization is ready to transition to OHVBC by looking at your proficiency in five key domains. By the end of this module, you’ll understand that it is possible to transform your practice based on a new system of care and reimbursement if you follow a strategic approach.

Payment Reform in Oral Health Care

The U.S. health care system is in the process of reforming its payment structure to incentivize quality, health outcomes, and value of care over volume of care. In this module, you’ll take a look at what has been happening in medicine and how it can be applied to dentistry. You’ll learn about payment reform priorities in both medicine and oral health care and the opportunities and barriers to implementing them.
