Congratulations to Dr. Ray Jeter, Assistant Professor in the Department of Restorative Sciences, who received the 2021 American Dental Association Standards Committee on Dental Informatics (SCDI) Chairman’s Award.
The award recognizes ongoing contributions to the voluntary standardizations community for the development of dental informatics standards. Between 2014-2019 Dr. Jeter and his team refined and further developed the initial standardized data element set that allowed communication between dental and medical electronic health records as well as HIPAA-recognized health partners. This data set was the foundation of ADA Technical Report No. 1084: Reference Core Data Set for Communication Among Dental and Other Health Information Systems.
From 2017 to 2020 Dr Jeter served as Chairman, Working Group 11.9, Core Reference Data and most recently served as Deputy Chairman, Subcommittee on Dental Informatics.
