North American Quitline Consortium
Members of NAQC’s eReferral workgroup have been engaged in pilot projects to implement eReferral programs between state quitlines and a variety of healthcare institutions. Many of the healthcare institutions serve tobacco users who are disproportionately burdened by tobacco use. NAQC has posted ten reports that describe the progress made by five states, their service providers, healthcare institutions and EHR vendors. You may link to the webpage
or to the individual reports below: California
- UC Medical Centers (UC-Davis, LA, SF, SD and Irvine), Epic, Allscripts and California Smokers HelplineOklahoma
- Mercy Health System, Epic and Alere Wellbeing
- Chickasaw Nation Medical Center, RPMS and Alere WellbeingPennsylvania
- University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Cerner (EHR), Medicity (HIE) and National Jewish HealthTexas
- Baylor Scott and White, Epic, Alere Wellbeing and University of Texas at Austin
- GE Centricity, Alere Wellbeing and University of Texas at Austin
- Holon Solutions, Alere Wellbeing and University of Texas at Austin
- Lonestar Circle of Care, NextGen, Alere Wellbeing and University of Texas at Austin
- NextGen, Alere Wellbeing and University of Texas at AustinWisconsin
- Dean Health, Epic and Alere Wellbeing Next Steps
– The workgroup currently is developing an eReferral Technical Implementation Guide that may be used by all quitlines to develop an eReferral program with healthcare institutions in your states. We hope to share the guide with members in early 2015.
Please contact NAQC
if you have any questions about the resources or the eReferral workgroup.
