In 2015, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) determined that the California Smokers’ Helpline meets the Specialized Registry Reporting measure. Eligible professionals can choose to report smokers to the Helpline as part of their Meaningful Use Compliance.
The Helpline offers a variety of options for referring patients and clients to the Helpline's evidence-based telephone counseling for quitting smoking, including web-based referral, DIRECT messaging, and other Internet options.
Kristin Harms and Carrie Kirby with the California Smokers' Helpline describe the various options available for referring patients online to the Helpline including cost, technology requirements, and fulfillment of Meaningful Use Requirements.
