UCSF Health merges oral, medical records through Epic

San Francisco-based UCSF Health and UCSF Dentistry have integrated patients' oral health and medical records into Epic's electronic health record system.

UCSF is the first academic health system in the West to merge oral health and medical records into an electronic health record, according to a Dec. 5 news release from UCSF.

"Given the synergistic relationship between oral health and overall wellness, a comprehensive approach to oral and medical care makes sense and positions UCSF to be a leader in breaking down barriers between the fields of dentistry and medicine," Suresh Gunasekaran, president and CEO of UCSF Health, said in the release.
