Dentistry's Adoption of a New Team Member to Improve Patient Outcomes

August 2020

Abstract

The dental healthcare profession is exemplified by high levels of interdependence and uncertainty, which critically expand the need for identification and evaluation of care coordination efforts. These efforts are not a one-size-fits-all solution within the dental healthcare system, and, therefore, require granular identification of the essential levers within each organization that can be adjusted to improve patient care and outcomes. Using the relational coordination theory, this research presents three studies designed to measure the relational interventions to improve care coordination efforts in dentistry.
