Incentives to Help Smokers

JAMA. 2015;313(2):125. doi:10.1001/jama.2014.17379

Financial incentives that topped $200 000 helped community health centers in New York City boost both the number of smokers identified and total smoking cessation interventions provided.

The study was conducted at 19 health centers from 2010 through 2012 with a goal of incorporating screening for smoking and advice on quitting into routine patient visits. Health care professionals participating in the initiative also were required to document patients’ smoking status and interventions in an electronic health record (EHR).
