Early recognition and management of oral conditions are important to sustain the health and quality of life of HIV-positive individuals. In this workshop, we demonstrate use of a client-level information system to assess the quality and outcomes of HIV oral health care. We describe use of the Provide Enterprise System by the Fort Lauderdale Part A grantee to conduct a longitudinal cohort study of 4,693 HIV-positive oral care adult patients. We present assessment findings including the extent to which funded subgrantees met HAB and Part A oral health standards, disparities in use of oral health care, and the relationship between use of medical and oral health care. Methods to address challenges in using information systems to conduct quality assessments are discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • The application of information systems to improve oral health services will be discussed.
  • Trainees will learn methods to assess quality using client-level data and longitudinal analytic techniques.
  • Trainees will learn how to apply these techniques to medical and other core services.
