Why Use A Dashboard?

Dashboards give a quick status  update for key measures and allow Health Center leadership to monitor  factors that affect quality and drive performance. Regularly seeing the  data for an organization makes it much easier to respond quickly to  areas of concern, or to change courses of action.


Dental Dashboard Measures

The Dental Dashboard consists of 15 measures that are organized into three categories:


CHC Population Health

1. Caries at Recall

2. Risk Assessment of all Dental Patients

3. Oral Evaluation and/or Risk Assessment of all Primary Care Patients

4. Sealants (6-9 year olds)

5. Sealants (10-14 year olds)

6. Topical Fluoride

7. Self-Management Goal Setting

8. Self-Management Goal Review

9. Treatment Plan Completion


Fiscal and Operational Sustainability

10. Recall Rates

11. No Shows

12. Charges (Production) Per Encounter
