Another ADA link. Two ADA links in a single day Wow. This is a story from the News that outlines the work being done to create the dental portion of the Electronic Health Record.
ADA leaders are now working to ensure that the unique character of dental practice is understood and maintained in the dental components of the electronic health record as the government moves this initiative forward.
The federal government wants to promote overall quality and cost reduction of the entire health care system by increasing the use of health information technology. Its primary focus is to develop an electronic health record for everyone in the U.S. by 2015. Complete health information will be contained in a patient’s electronic health record.
