MiDRSM provides a web based platform that facilitates communication between primary care providers and dentists regarding pediatric patient oral health. It is designed to document provided care, and place and track referrals to a dentist as needed.
MiDRSM partnered with Delta Dental of Michigan, Michigan's largest dental insurer, to offer direct access to the Healthy Kid's Dental network of dentists.
MiDRSM is available for EHR integration, beginning with users of Allscripts Professional.
In 2016, Altarum launched a first-of-a-kind state wide oral health monitoring system, Michigan's Dental Registry (MiDRSM),
aimed at transforming the way medical and dental providers communicate regarding their patients oral health.
MiDRSM increases communication and transparency among the patient's care team, allowing for better coordination in patient treatment and referrals across the medical and dental settings, positively impacting the quality of oral health care provided, and increasing early prevention among young patients.
Place a Referral to a MiDR Dentist
You can now see which dental clinics in your area are MiDR users. Simply look for the purple star next to the dental clinic!
View the Status of a Referral
Dentists can now update a referral to indicate if they accept the referral, if an appointment has been scheduled, or if that patient was seen in the office, and therefore the referral is complete. This will help primary care and social service providers better understand where in the process a patient referral is, and inform patient counseling regarding the importance of a dental visit.
You can now use MiDRSM to prepare for future patient visits by generating a patient summary report. This report can be printed out and attached to the patient chart, making it easy to identify if a patient needs fluoride varnish, an oral screening, or a dental home referral.
Save frequent patients to your My Patients table and view their treatment with or without the Medicaid ID. My Patients makes it easier for you to follow up with patients and update treatment records.
