New Tobacco Cessation Protocol Could Save Texas Millions of Dollars – 12 de marzo de 2015 – EEUU

AUSTIN, Texas — The University of Texas at Austin has partnered with Baylor Scott & White Health and the Department of State Health Services to launch the first of multiple trainings that introduce physicians to eTobacco, a newly designed tobacco cessation protocol that connects a patient’s electronic medical records with a state-funded tobacco cessation program called Quitline.

Dr. Shelley Karn, a certified health care reform specialist in the Department of Kinesiology and Health Education at UT Austin, says the trainings are “the first of their kind” and expects approximately 30 physicians to attend today’s kickoff instruction session hosted by Temple Memorial Hospital in Temple, Texas.
