NAQC November Webinar - Electronic Quitline Referrals: How Far Have We Come and Next Steps?

Wednesday, October 31, 2012  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov

You are invited to join us on Wednesday, November 14 from 12:30-2:00 PM ET for the next NAQC webinar on Electronic Quitline Referrals: How Far Have We Come and What are the Next Steps?

Through "meaningful use”, the U.S. federal government is providing substantial incentives for health care systems to adopt electronic health records (EHRs) and use them in ways to improve quality, safety and efficiency. These incentives are having their desired effect -- nearly half of physicians in outpatient practices and over 40% of physicians in U.S. hospitals are now using EHRs. The demand on health care systems to demonstrate increased efficiency of EHRs is having a spill-over effect on quitline referrals. Indeed many quitlines are not only hearing about the importance of implementing electronic quitline referrals from their health care partners but feeling pressure to take action.

During this 90-minutes webinar, NAQC members will:

  • Hear a proposed description of electronic referral;
  • Learn about the Meaningful Use Initiative and timely opportunities to incorporate quitline e-referral into meaningful use;
  • Hear about progress-to-date and lessons learned from states using e-referrals; and
  • Have an opportunity to provide feedback on next steps we should take as a Consortium.

Please join us for this important webinar and provide your feedback on next steps we should take as a Consortium. We look forward to your participation!
