The Institute for Oral and Systemic Health To Answer Questions

Sunday, April 6th, 2014 -- 10:54 AM

A newly-formed institute within the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation will tackle some of the biggest questions surrounding better integration of medical and dental care.

The Institute for Oral and Systemic Health is an outgrowth of an already nationally-leading dental informatics research program at MCRF. IOSH was developed in collaboration with the Clinic?s Division of Education and Family Health Center of Marshfield, Inc.

IOSH will use applied, preventive and basic science research, patient and provider education and informatics and information technology to better align medicine and dentistry in a growing effort to improve quality of patient care and lower overall health care costs.

IOSH?s efforts will focus on enhancing patients? dental care and dental outcomes by improving their overall health, reducing costs and designing intuitive clinical tools that help health care providers holistically serve patients. IOSH also will provide support for the Division of Education?s dental residency program and other educational and training opportunities.
