Dentistry schools move forward with new health record system

The Collaboration for Health IT (Collaboration) is working to effect generational change in EHR software in order to advance progress in clinical care, research and education within the dental profession. The University of Michigan, School of Dental Medicine signed an agreement that moves the process into the implementation phase, with the launch of ICE Health Systems expected in 2018. By making ICE available via Internet2's Net+ services, the Collaboration is broadening the benefits to every school that partners with Internet2 (see recently released Case Study).

Research opportunity
A software program that, among other things, mathematically models periodontal disease has been developed and requires more stringent examination than the past year of successful “in-house” testing. The software developer seeks a periodontal and/or dental informatics graduate student looking for a certificate program research topic. The developer will provide advice, fully-committed mentoring, plus a $5000 research award. Student is expected to work with an academic institution and produce work that is worthy of being published in a peer-reviewed journal. Opportunity is designed to be a win-win for all concerned. Inquiries as to details of the project (see DIOC listing “Dental Integra” under projects) may be directed to: DrS@thedentalintegra.com.
