Kristen West Fisher presents at Health Innovation Leadership Network

Our VP of Programs Kristen West Fisher recently presented on Eastern Washington's efforts to improve oral health throughout the region at the Washington Health Care Authority's Health Innovation Leadership Network meeting last month.  She highlighted the great work being done by our subsidiary Better Health Together through their Dental Emergencies Needing Treatment (DENT) program, which aims to reduce dental-related emergency service use for Medicaid patients.  By growing the network of Medicaid dental providers and helping clients access preventive dental care, this program has already saved an estimated $2 million in emergency room funds in the first 18 months.  Check out Kristen's full presentation below.
