cover of Considerations for Identifying Pregnancies in Claims Data for Oral Health Care Quality Measurement

Considerations for Identifying Pregnancies in Claims Data for Oral Health Care Quality Measurement provides information about two oral health quality measures for pregnant women that the Dental Quality Alliance (DQA) has developed. The paper explains why oral health care during pregnancy and the development of related oral health care quality measures are important, as well as how health care quality measures are reported. It also discusses identifying pregnant women in claims data for denominator inclusion, determining enrollment requirements, for denominator inclusion, determining time frame for receipt of recommended services for numerator inclusion, and the impact of benefits coverage on identification services for numerator inclusion. The paper was produced by DQA and the National Maternal and Child Oral Health Resource Center, partners in the Consortium for Oral Health Systems Integration and Improvement.
