Work Package Lead: Prof. Stefan Listl University of Heidelberg, Germany
In work package 3 the researchers will develop a comprehensive approach to collecting and analysing existing data contained in large oral health databases in EU countries. They will set up a “data hub” to collect each country’s data and create a harmonised format. They will select indicators acknowledging success in the prevention of disease and avoidance of unnecessary treatment linking in with work package 4 to support the generation of a set of indicators for the project dashboard, such as tooth extraction rate. They will then evaluate the impact of financial incentive schemes on providers and patients in promoting preventive oral health care. They will also compare the value for money gain generated by different payment schemes.
