Private Sector. In contrast to the public sector, the private sector has been much slower in adopting a fully interoperable health information system (XxxXxxxxx et al., 2008; Xxx et al., 2009). Electronic health systems come with complexities, complications, and high costs involved. Political and financial measures have been put into place to reduce such issues and to facilitate the adoption of a national health infrastructure. In 2009, President Xxxxxx Xxxxx signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH). The focus of ARRA and HITECH was to give the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) authority to provide financial reimbursement incentives for eligible professionals (EP) and hospitals to adopt widespread EHR technology information. The widespread EHR technology needs to be exchanged in a ‘meaningful’ understandable way to improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of patient care in the U.S. (Xxxxxxxxxx & Xxxxxxxx, 2010; Xxxxxxxx et al., 2012; Steinbrook, 2009). Meaningful Use (MU) is a three-stage process with final stage beginning in fiscal year 2017 (XXX.xxx, 2017; Griskewicz, 2015) with the goal to improve quality, safety, efficiency, and reduce health disparities. Stage-two was the first to incorporate oral health measures. Medical-Dental Integration Programs There are pilot programs and early intervention programs in place throughout the U.S. in the attempt to integrate oral health into systemic health care. Some hospital ED settings in the U.S. have developed referral-based pilot programs for patients that demonstrate a financial need and are referred to volunteer dentists. Referred patients receive treatment for dental care and provide community services as a payment for the dental care received. Other ED settings are working with state and local dental societies to reduce preventable-dental visits to the hospital ED by providing tooth extractions on- site to patients who are unable to receive care through the dental safety net. A local dental society recruits the volunteer dentists; the goal is to eliminate visits to the ED for the same dental problem, and reduce ED visits for dental pain and infections. Some participating hospitals have seen a reduction for dental-related visits by as much as 70% with potentially saving the state millions in Medicaid dollars (Xxxxxx, 2013). Other collaboration efforts are in place for integrating dentistry into primary ca...
