CF-5A's Intervention goals are:

  • To start the patient-provider smoking cessation conversation with the patient through a self-administered PhreesiaPad Intervention assessment in the clinic waiting area, available in English and Spanish.

  • To cultivate a collaborative exchange between patient and provider while addressing patient smoking cessation needs and clinic system obstacles of time, counseling expertise, data entry, follow-up and cost.




CF-5A's Philosophy is based on:

  • Patient centered care that enables engagement, inclusion, non-judgment and efficacy with clinic's providers and staff.

  • Meeting the current need to support overstretched providers by saving time through the PhreesiaPad while improving quality of care delivery.

  • Intervention's flow to minimize practice burden and create added value to patient.
