Propose your plan to test DQA measures

May 20, 2013

The Dental Quality Alliance is soliciting proposals to test the feasibility, reliability and validity of two e-measures in dentistry.

The DQA wants to study care continuity and sealant use. Through these proposals, the DQA aims to establish a sustainable cost-effective process for e-measure validation and identify existing resources that can be used to validate additional measures in the future. E-measures are based on data from an electronic health record.

Investigators who are interested in applying should email a letter of interest to Dr. Krishna Aravamudhan, senior manager for the Office of Quality Assessment and Improvement at the ADA, at The letter is optional but encouraged so the DQA can effectively plan the review process. All proposals must be submitted by June 30.

The DQA, formed in 2008 through a request from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, is comprised of multiple stakeholders from across the oral health community who are committed to development of consensus-based quality measures.
