Description

Recent CareQuest Institute research shows that 96% of adults know there is a connection between the health of the mouth and the rest of the body. Why does our system still treat them separately?

As the calls for better integration between primary health and oral health grow, join us for a practical webinar about implementing effective care coordination and breaking down care silos. Our expert panel will provide unique perspectives on how they have overcome barriers to set up successful medical-dental integration programs that put the patient at the center of the care experience. They’ll also share how they got started on their journeys and pitfalls other organizations should avoid.

Learning Objectives

  • Differentiate between medical-dental coordination and medical-dental integration.
  • Identify strategies to implement medical-dental coordination and integration into routine patient care.
  • Determine appropriate strategies to overcome obstacles within workflow and logistics to medical-dental coordination and integration.
