The ADA is commending the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for adopting standards for health care attachments transactions and electronic signatures but would like to see the agency promote standards that are compatible with dentistry.

In a letter dated March 20, ADA President George R. Shepley, D.D.S., and Executive Director Raymond A. Cohlmia, D.D.S., said “the potential savings for the dental industry will not be actualized unless electronic dental record and practice management systems are required to adopt standards to facilitate electronic data interchange.” They also asked that any changes to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 Administrative Simplification Standards include requiring the Code on Dental Procedures and Nomenclature, also known as CDT, for dental procedures.
