II.1.4)Short description:

The aim of the Dental E-Referral Management System (DEMS) is to manage the appropriate clinical demand and allocation of referrals to specialist dental services. A national approach to the implementation of an e-referral platform is required for Wales.

The average referral activity for Wales is approximately 44 000. This is for all specialities and is the expected volume to be managed by a Dental E-Referral Management Service provider.

DEMS will serve to provide 3 main functions:

- To provide an outward-facing service with a central hub to receive and process referrals.

- Work with locally identified clinical triage's to process dental referrals for all dental specialities, ensuring referrals are received by the most appropriate clinical services across Wales.

- To maintain a comprehensive and robust referral dataset that will be analysed and presented in regular reports. This will provide intelligence about quality assurance, clinical referral behaviours and clinical pathway outcomes.
