Today, NAQC has released its new publication, Guide for Implementing eReferral Using Certified EHRs! This guide is a resource for quitlines and other cessation services that would like to establish referral systems with healthcare electronic health record (EHR) systems. It provides recommended standards for implementing eReferral in a straightforward and efficient way.
NAQC will host a webinar in the coming month to discuss the guide. We hope the guide is helpful in your cessation work and look forward to hearing your feedback on this new publication!
- For non-technical program staff, the guide’s introduction, purpose and summary of recommendations will provide useful background on eReferral (see first 5 pages).
- For technical staff at quitlines, other cessation services and healthcare institutions, the guide’s recommended set of standards provides a roadmap for creating bi-directional eReferrals (read full guide and appendices).
