Dr. Jeff Hummel, medical director of informatics for Comagine Health, was recently included in a Nature article about oral health. The article mentions Comagine Health’s work with oral health integration, which Dr. Hummel spearheaded.
The article focuses on efforts to improve oral health worldwide and examines Comagine Health’s work on a four-year oral health integration project that involved 19 health care centers in five states. As part of the study, organizers taught pediatricians, family doctors and clinical teams how to screen for oral disease and provide advice on diet, oral hygiene and when to refer patients to dentists.
A study now under way in the United Kingdom has taken inspiration from Comagine Health’s work, the article states. Learn more about Comagine Health’s work with oral health integration.
