Update on the HRSA UDS Sealant Measure
A National Network for Oral Health Access Webinar
In 2015, HRSA introduced the first oral health clinical quality measure to the UDS, with the UDS Sealants Measure. This session highlighted the 2017 UDS data results for the dental sealants measure. Topics included: common challenges health centers have experienced in developing, modifying, and/or implementing clinical workflows and procedures to report on the measure. Best practices and work-arounds to address data collection and reporting challenges were shared for those health centers that are not yet using the EDR vendor-developed solutions for reporting on the measure. For those organizations who were unable to attend the session at the recent NNOHA Conference in New Orleans, this webinar assisted health centers to more accurately and completely collect the different data elements of the measure (age, patient of record, risk status, exclusions, and sealants placed) and offered suggestions on how programs can improve on their UDS Sealants Measure.
