The University of Michigan, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the University of Pittsburgh and Internet2 invite dental schools throughout the world to learn about their collaboration to address electronic health records in dental education at the upcoming 2013 American Dental Educators Association (ADEA) Annual Session & Exhibition in Seattle, Washington, March 16-19, 2013. Faculty and administrators are invited to meet with the partners at booth number 423.

The collaborators and ICE Health Systems, via Internet2’s NET+ initiative, are currently involved in a progressing effort to refine and implement a cloud-based electronic health record system to support the extensive education and research needs of the schools. Cloud technologies offer numerous advantages including enhanced, secure data access, and sharing, research opportunities, lower costs and continuous innovation.

The initiative and collaborators intend to bring an innovative patient care service to the education and practicing communities featuring scalable electronic health records with enhanced patient, practice and learning management systems while offering data sharing opportunities for large scale research projects.

The benefit of the collaboration with ICE Health Systems will be a secure, cloud-based service able to meet the patient care, education, business, research and administrative requirements of institutions, professional offices and clinics. The collective input from the different dental schools will lead to improved systems, an advantage aimed to soon benefit many educators, clinicians and patients throughout the world.
