The North Carolina Institute of Medicine (NCIOM) is convening a task force to identify and develop consensus-driven, actionable recommendations to strengthen the delivery of oral health services through North Carolina's Medicaid program and promote whole-person health across the state.
The Oral Health Transformation Task Force will be guided by a focus on the needs of vulnerable populations and historically marginalized communities, and will include diverse perspectives, expertise, and lived experience in the collaborative design, development, and messaging of oral health transformation opportunities. The task force, which is generously supported by the Duke Endowment, will consider several aspects of oral health services in North Carolina in developing recommendations, including consumer access and experience, operations, provider networks, and quality measures and outcomes.
