3 medical-dental integration moves in 10 days

Health systems, DSOs and oral health groups have been busy collaborating on initiatives to advance medical-dental integration.

Here are three moves that have taken place since Dec. 2: 

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

2. The CareQuest Institute for Oral Health began funding the 100 Million Mouths Campaign, a nationwide initiative by the Center for Integration of Primary Care and Oral Health to integrate oral health into primary healthcare. 

3. Irvine, Calif.-based Pacific Dental Services and Fountain Valley, Calif.-based MemorialCare formed a joint venture to integrate dental and medical care. The two organizations plan to open at least 25 co-located locations in the next five years, with PDS-supported dental offices inside select MemorialCare Medical Group health centers across California's Orange and Los Angeles counties.
