QuitWorks-NH at a Glance
QuitWorks-NH links your patients who want to quit tobacco use to the full range of the state’s tobacco treatment services. All it takes to use QuitWorks-NH are a clinician, a patient who uses tobacco, and the QuitWorks-NH tools.
How It Works
Using a simple referral form, any physician, nurse, or other clinician in your hospital or health center can easily and quickly enroll any patient who uses tobacco, regardless of health insurance status. Referring a patient to QuitWorks-NH services triggers a Quit Coach from QuitNow-NH, the state-funded QuitWorks-NH service provider, to reach out by phone to your patient.
Within 2 days after the QuitWorks-NH referral form is received, a specially trained tobacco Quit Coach sends you a notification that your referral has been received and calls your patient. A seven minute Intake Assessment is required before your patient is offered a screening for nicotine replacement patches (available while supplies last) and up to six coaching sessions. These services are provided at no cost to your patient. Every referring provider will receive a patient status report relative to services accepted within three weeks. About seven months later, QuitNow-NH calls your patient to assess their tobacco use status and reports to you on patient outcomes.
