Big Data for Oral Health Knowledge: Preparing for the Workshop

Dr. Elsbeth Kalenderian, one of the presenters at the Workshop and Associate Professor and Chair Oral Health Policy and Epidemiology Department and Chief of Quality at the Harvard Dental Center, will talk about Standardized Terminology. She posted the following two questions to all the participants in order to trigger some discussions related to her presentation:

  1. What will make the average dental provider move to implement a diagnostic terminology, regardless if it is the DDS, ICD or a ref set?
  2. How can standardized terminologies be helpful in the integration of oral health into general health or more directly how can it facilitate inter-professional collaboration?

Please feel free to share your thoughts here with us.
