Monday Roundtable Luncheon
Value-based payment and care have increased in medicine in the past decade. Medicaid programs in a number of states have begun thinking about how to improve oral health outcomes for beneficiaries while better managing the costs of care, and we will soon see oral health value-based care pilots being tested. Oral health value-based care represents a huge shift from the way dentistry has been financed and carried out for nearly two hundred years. We will see the focus shift from the volume of effort (as represented by the types and numbers of services provided) to the results of that effort (in terms of measurable improvements in oral health outcomes). Come to this session to gain a better understanding of value-based care, how oral health value-based care differs from traditional fee-for-service oral health care and the different models of oral health value-based care that states may choose to adopt, as well as an overview of the domains and competencies public health dental programs will need to master to be successful in this new system of care and financing.
