Description

The Patient-Centered Health Home is a concept being implemented through a variety of approaches including full integration, co-location, shared financing, virtual linkages and facilitated referral and follow-up. Health Homes are an important approach for helping to ensure that health center populations have access to comprehensive health care services, including dental care. This presentation will describe how oral health can be integrated into overall primary care systems to improve health care quality and outcomes of the patients we serve, by illustrating promising practices from an example health center oral health program.

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Understand why medical-dental integration is a positive attribute.

2. Describe examples of medical-dental integration at the clinical level.

3. Receive “take home” examples of how to incorporate oral health into your health center’s Patient-Centered Health Home.
