The American Dental Association has helped develop two recently published guides that will improve the sharing of patient health information between dental and medical providers.

The ADA worked in partnership with Health Level Seven International, an American National Standards Institute-accredited organization that provides standards related to global health data interoperability, as well as other stakeholders. The ADA has formally partnered with HL7 for many years, developing the dental content of standards while HL7 provides the technical elements.
