DQI hosts kick-off meeting for ECC Phase III Cohort B

DQI hosted a kick-off meeting for ECC Phase III Cohort B with New York State Department of Public Health (NYSDOH) and the Oral Health Technical Assistance Center in Rochester, NY last month. NYSDOH, led by Dr. Jay Kumar, coordinated a one day meeting to onboard five teams from western New York to participate in ECC Phase III. NYSDOH is especially interested in western NY because those counties have the highest operating room utilization rates. Faculty from New York University College of Dentistry, Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, and University of Rochester – Eastman Institute for Oral Health will work with ECC Faculty to build capacity in western New York. Teams and faculty will be participating in our next cohort, starting February 2014.
