Medical-Dental-Behavioral Integration: One Health Center’s Example 7/25/16

The integration of multiple health care disciplines into a Patient Centered Health Home can sometimes seem like the Holy Grail – everyone has heard of it but have we actually seen it? This presentation traced the journey of one early adopter organization, Health Partners of Western Ohio (HPWO), as they integrated behavioral health, oral health and primary care with each other. Learn what characteristics of health centers with successful integration were present at HPWO, and how these characteristics facilitated integration. The goal of this webinar is to understand some of the challenges that HPWO has encountered, how HPWO has developed system solutions to support integration, how the clinical visit is structured to incorporate interdisciplinary practice and how patients have benefited from this care model. The HPWO model contains ideas health centers can use to improve patient care.

It’s All in the Numbers; Planning and Financing for Your Dental Expansion 1/8/16

The session will cover the operational planning elements that will need to be considered when forecasting a dental expansion and possible sources of capital financing. Presenters will walk through a model that will project financial results on a stand-alone basis for a dental clinic based on the number of planned operatories, provider productivity, payer mix, and reimbursement rates / systems, etc. – variations in any one of which can have a significant impact on the feasibility of the project. A list of possible funding sources for a CHC dental project will also be reviewed and the pros and cons of using each as well as suggestions for next steps.
