Teledentistry - Practical solutions
With the advent of advanced technologies and communication tools, the provision and promotion of health care is being changed dramatically. The digital transformation affects medical practices and affects or will affect dentists and their patients for years to come. Recent experiences of hospitals and medical practices have shown that dentists can expect to encounter revolutionary changes as a result of the digital transformation. The Internet, the World Wide Web, the contribution of artificial intelligence, and other technologies driving the information revolution are redefining patient education, patient care, referral relationships, practice management, quality, and interprofessional collaborations.
The webinar will present case studies of two countries which have implemented distance oral health care solutions nation-wide. The speakers from Chile will share their experiences with setting up an oral medicine teleconsultation service “Célula de Patología Oral” as part of the Digital Hospital of the Ministry of Health while the French “Oralien” program, designed to assist with the care of elderly people in retirement homes, will present the rationale behind the program and the impact it has on the population it serves.
