Smoking screen

Current smoking status is a key meaningful use measure for HIT. The initial screen to assess smoking status should mimic the meaningful use measure and this should be asked at every encounter. For patients who respond yes, more detailed questions to understand use, readiness to quit, and barriers/facilitators to quitting would be valuable.

Tobacco User I.D. System

Screening for tobacco use at every clinician visit regardless of the reason for the visit should be done and this is a simple way to screen for tobacco use. It may be helpful when screening for tobacco use to add if a current, former, or never smoker, and to also screen for exposure to second hand smoke.

Critical Measure

I agree that more detail is valuable, but this is a critical measure. In the VA, we have measures of tobacco use kept as structured fields (Health Factors). Dr. Steven Fu is using these ina current grant to proactively call smokers to offer telephone-based cessation counseling.
