Brief Bio Sketch

As the Chief Operations Officer in a large multi-specialty group dental practice, my mission is to pursue and develop sustainable quality outcome and process measures that provide the patients and employer groups value for the dollars they spend on oral health services. What is woefully lacking in the dental industry is the ability to effectively implement interprofessional education and measure outcomes of clinical care.

Abstract

There is a need in healthcare to coordinate diagnosis treatment and the delivery of care to help patients through an industry that is built in fragments and complicated to understand. Treatment and diagnosis for patients and coordinated healthcare teams are becoming a key strategy to improve health outcomes, staff and patient satisfaction and efficient use of healthcare dollars. In total they reflect the quadruple aim in healthcare. Yet, there are limited examples in dentistry to use as best practices for quality improvement.

Care coordination or interprofessional coordination in primary care practice seeks to organize the care around the patient not upon the professionals academic background, rather a structure deliberately architected upon how to collaborate with the professions’ to improve the care experience. The context seeks to understand the effect of interprofessional education in dentistry applied to care advocates, and the relationship to the quadruple aim.
