CTuK1 - Accountable for the Health of a Population? You Must Include Oral Health

Aug 29, 2017 8:30am ‐ Aug 29, 2017 10:00am


The healthcare environment is undergoing significant changes that include caring for the whole person, paying for value not volume, and being accountable for the health of a population. To address these changes, you must include oral health. Data and models are available to support your health center's need to address the five domains of HRSA's Integration of Oral Health and Primary Care clinical core competencies (risk assessment, oral health evaluation, preventive intervention, communication and education, and interprofessional collaborative practice), develop or enhance your dental program, and make the business case. This session will focus on the resources and technical assistance available to your health center.

  • - Describe areas where your health center can improve the integration of oral health and primary care, including options for making improvements.
  • - Formulate a business plan that makes the financial case for having a dental program at your health center.
  • - Identify resources that are available to assist your health center to improve the oral health of the community you serve.
