Introducing Patient Health History
Availity now provides access to Patient Health History. This feature offers dental providers a more complete view of a patent’s overall health. For members with Anthem dental benefits and an affiliated medical plan you can:
- view medications that may affect your patient’s dental health
- confirm medical information that may help you diagnose conditions that display specific symptoms in the mouth
- receive care alerts that notify you of any gaps in patient care that we’ve identified
- stay up-to-date about your patient’s health when performing exams or procedures, helping to improve their overall care
Our semi-annual newsletter, Dental Dispatch, has all the news and information you need to know as a provider in the Empire dental network. Take a look inside for details on new products and tools, policy updates, industry news, helpful tips, and more.
