Dec. 7, 2012 - PRLog -- A new dental CE course titled, “Breaking Down Dental Silos with Electronic Health Records” has recently been published by The Richmond Institute on their website for continuing dental education, This course was written by practicing clinician, Patti DiGangi, RDH, who is a certified Health Information Technology trainer and a member of the American Health Information Management Association, which takes an active role in developing changes towards electronic health care practices.

Overall, this course takes a first-hand look at what the transition is like to move from traditional to digital record keeping in a contemporary dental office. It also discusses what this experience has been like for other dental professionals around the U.S., in addition to the successes and challenges that medical institutions have had in making this conversion. The course also focuses on the goals for Meaningful Use, and discusses the new role for a Risk Factor Manager within the dental practice.

This course is currently open to the dental public to view for free, and has two CE credits available for those who are interested in obtaining certification. Users must be a Richmond Institute member in order to take the associated exam, but there is no cost to sign up, and members will also be granted a free first course after officially becoming registered.

To see this course and/or earn CE credit, please visit The Richmond Institute website, and click the tab on the left-hand side labeled ‘Dental CE Courses (’. Each course is ADA CERP recognized for U.S. dentists, hygienists, assistants, and related office personnel to take for accreditation.
