Webinar Date: 
Wednesday, December 19, 2018 - 12:00pm EST

Description: Medicine has been on a value-based care (VBC) journey for more than a decade, but dentistry is just getting started. For more than two centuries dentists have practiced in a fee-for-service (FFS) reimbursement environment. Workflow, care delivery, business plan, staffing, documentation, health information technology, scheduling, billing, goals, productivity, policies and procedures, and communication have all been designed and implemented around a care and financing model that emphasizes volume over value. The transition to VBC in oral health has the potential to change each of those areas in a significant way. During this webinar we will explore how oral health value-based care is being defined and examine how your dental program might be impacted in the future.

Learning Objectives

After this presentation participants will be able to:

  • Describe the value-based care transformation that has occurred in medicine, and explain why dental is different.
  • Identify key components of value-based care as it relates to oral health.
  • Recognize potential oral health value-based care models based on a framework used in medicine.
