Monday Roundtable Luncheon
For a number of years, our colleagues in medicine have been transitioning their practices from a focus on volume to a focus on value. Value-based care in oral health is just starting to appear on the horizon as many state Medicaid programs are beginning to think about how to redesign the payment system to improve dental patient outcomes while lowering the costs of care. This session will offer practical tips on how to redesign the way oral health care is delivered (clinical care as well as operations and systems) to support the shift in focus from volume to value. Come to this roundtable to learn how to assess patients' disease risk, approaches to care based on risk and strategies for communicating effectively with patients, the principles of person-centered care, staffing and scheduling strategies for success, the importance of care coordination and more.
