Since your clinic already has PhreesiaPads installed the convenience of their use is likely understood. A new advantage to these pads however, is their CF-5A's Intervention application for effective time-saving smoking cessation counseling between patient and provider.  

  • UCSF created a program application in English and Spanish for the PhreesiaPad using the gold standard in smoking cessation to “start the provider conversation” before a patient’s appointment.

  • Assessment on PhreesiaPad eliminates pen and paper use –saving screening time, data entry error, enabling an efficient and focused (brief) intervention encounter between patient and provider.

  • Protocol incorporates elements of motivational interviewing and behavioral psychology while cultivating a collaborative partnership between patient and provider.

  • Counseling and billing documentation are in compliance with JCAHO (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations), AHRQ (Agency for  Health Research and Quality) and the NCI (National Cancer Institute) tobacco regulation, and meets CMS (Center for Medicare & Medicaid services) reporting requirements.

  • Integrates easily with clinic and patient flow - links with EMRs, provides billing documentation, creates PDFs and prints a patient's personalized response sheet, and a provider's summary and tip sheet.
  • The CF-5A's uses branching logic to tailor the program to the patient’s personal needs.
