Evaluating remote care by tele-dentistry Rodrigo Mariño Symposium Early Childhood Oral Health 28 September 2016
e-Health “to encompass the rapidly evolving discipline of using computing, networking and communications methodology and technology - to support the health related fields, such as medicine, nursing, pharmacy and dentistry" (WHO)
e-Health “products, systems and services that go beyond simply Internet-based applications. They include tools for both health authorities and professionals as well as personalised health systems for patients and citizens. ” (EU)
Major areas of tele-health applications
Teledentistry “Body of knowledge that focuses on the organisation, management and distribution of information in support of dental education, practice, research and administration”
Reasons for Teledentistry has the potential to benefit oral health care by: • enhancing early diagnosis, • facilitating timely treatment of oral diseases, • reducing isolation of practitioners through communication with peers and specialists, • reduce health care inequalities. For example access to specialists in rural (geographical or by resources) or underserved areas.
Applications of Teledentistry
Applications of Teledentistry Background • 1950’s dental education. • In use since the early 1960 s and covers a broad range of technologies. • The largest teledentistry undertaking in the world is being undertaken by the U. S. military. • Slow adoption of teledentistry.
Applications of Teledentistry ICT provides opportunities to supplement traditional methods for: Tele-consultation Tele-diagnosis Tele-treatment Tele-education Tele-training
Inequalities in oral health Overcoming geographical barriers for community health
Backgound • Face-to-face patient examinations are regarded as the most accurate method for correct oral health diagnosis. • However, members of specific groups of the community are less likely to have access to a dentist. • For example, the elderly (homebound or living in nursing homes).
Backgound Information from the Australian state of Victoria indicates that: • 11% percent of residents have seen a dentist in the past 12 months, • few dentists are available to provide dental care for residents of aged care facilities, • half of Victoria’s dentists reported providing care to residents of RACFs, and • These spent on average only one hour per month providing care in this setting.

Broadband 3 D tele-health applications Four proof-of-concept projects: • • Teledentistry, Teledentistry Teleoncology, Telepsychiatry, and Telewound management
Objectives To assess the feasibility of using teledentistry to screen for oral diseases and conditions and to develop treatment plans for older people living in Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACF).
Methods • Three nursing homes in Victoria • Two metropolitan • One rural. • Five registered nurses. • Fifty RACF’s residents.
Methods • RN Training involved: • 3 hours of direct contact, • a 66 -page training manual with contents organized in 6 modules. • • • Module Module 1: 2: 3: 4: 5: 6: Uses of teledentistry Oral health in older adults Oral and dental anatomy: practical issues How to conduct the intraoral teledental examination Use of the dental camera for teledentistry consultation Capturing and forwarding information from dental examination • up to 10 hours of practice examinations , and • compensation for their time.
Methods • Registered nurses performed a ‘virtual dental examination’ on a group of residents. examination • 10 residents (with no cognitive deterioration). 10 repeated face-face exams. • The information obtained from this examination was transmitted to a server. • Information was registered on a conventional chart for the generation of treatment plans by qualified clinicians at the Melbourne Dental School, University of Melbourne
The Implementation of teledentistry for Pediatric Patients Rodrigo Mariño, David Manton, Parul Marwaha, Kerrod Hallett, Ken Clarke, Matthew Hopcraft, Michael Mc. Cullough, Ann Borda
Objectives To assess: • the feasibility of using teledentistry for teleconsultation in children/adolescents living in rural/remote areas of the state of Victoria, • participants’ views about the structure, content and delivery of the program, • whether it could be implemented under current financial arrangements.
Methods • Sites for the project: - RCH (Main central site) - Shepparton • Urban • Rural - Frankston - Geelong c
Methods Three local general dental practitioners (GDP) were trained to manipulate an intra-oral camera and use ICT infrastructure to send the information for remote examinations. Teleconsultation specialists at the Royal Children’s Hospital of Melbourne/ Dental School, University of Melbourne
Methods 3 oral health conditions were selected: • Cleft lip and palate • Dental trauma • Orthodontics Patients from the RCH’s patient database who lived in the selected locations were recruited. Both, the community health centres and the Both RCH, operated within current financial arrangements.
Methods • Parents were given a questionnaire to assess his/her views on the teledentistry approach. • GDPs self-completed a questionnaire to assess: • their overall experience with the approach, • the utility of the instructional training kit, and • other issues.

Cost-effectiveness analysis of implementing teledentistry for rural and regional paediatric patients in Victoria, Australia Based on postcodes, the TD model :
Cost-effectiveness analysis of implementing teledentistry for rural and regional paediatric patients in Victoria, Australia • 367 TD appropriate consultations were found in the dataset. • Average cost of a RCH consultation $431. 29 vs. $294. 35 for TD. • TD was more cost effective for those travelling greater distances. • 36. 7 days of clinic time may be freed up in the RCH clinic. • These results were robust when performing one-way sensitivity analysis.
Conclusions • The teledentistry approach proved to be feasible a viable solution, in terms of time, stress, and money saved for parents and children. • When taking a societal perspective, the implementation of TD is likely to be a costeffective alternative compared with the standard practice of face-to-face consultation at the RCH.
Conclusions • From the RCH perspective, the potential reduction of inappropriate referrals with the concomitant reduction of waiting lists for specialist consultation, are important advantages of teledentistry, which are clinically important and also have budgetary implications. • This reduction was achieved without increasing costs to the oral health provider.

ECCAPPS will have three major components: • Information (using gamification) • Management • Clinical • The Information and Management Components will be on mobile devices • The Clinical component will be at a hospital or dental clinic.
The Information Component • Provides information about dental caries (ECC). • Oral health promotion • Allows the parents of children to take photographs for clinical assessment. • Gathers data and sends data back to the clinical facility where the risk and spread of carries can be analyzed and monitored.
The Management Component • Is used to implement a protocol for managing and reducing the risk of ECC. • Sends reminders to parents when the prevention and treatment steps need to be performed • Guides parents through the steps required to reduce their children’s level of risk according to the protocol • Provides data back to clinicians for monitoring and, where necessary, intervention. • Reminds parents of dental visits.
The Clinical Component • Will reside at a Oral Healthcare Facility or Hospital. • Will allow the clinician to bring up patient records, see what has been done and what steps of the protocol have been followed. • Will allow the clinician to schedule appointments and send these directly with the parents’ mobile phone • Will allow the clinician to modify the treatment plan when necessary.
