Tap for Support NFC Badges
Looking for an easy way to refer patients to smoking cessation resources, including the Michigan Tobacco Quitline?
Our Tap for Support NFC badges for health care professionals use near-field communication technology, just like Apple Pay or the badge ID you use to unlock a computer or office door, to quickly refer your patients to the HBOM text line.
Using the badge will initiate a pre-populated text on the patient’s phone that enrolls them in the HBOM text line. The text line helps connect patients with tobacco cessation resources.
How to Use
There are three options for enrolling patients in the text line using your badge.
Option 1: NFC (Near-Field Communication)
1. Unlock phone.
2. Swipe badge up the front of the phone from bottom to top.
3. Click on the pop-up prompt and follow instructions (or for Apple iPhone devices, press ‘send’).
Note: Not all phones have NFC capability. If the NFC does not work, choose one of the other two options.
Option 2: Scan the QR Code
1. Open the camera on phone.
2. Point at QR code (clock on QR code to help camera focus).
3. Click on pop-up that displays over QR code
Option 3: Send a text message
1. Open the messaging app on the phone
2. Text “signup” to 313-548-0000.
Quit Smoking Resource Guide Tear Off Pad (50 Sheets)
The Quit Smoking Resource guide offers a high-level overview of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) options. Providers can use this as a discussion tool with patients interested in quitting smoking.
The front side provides a quick comparison of NRT options, and the back has simple guides for using the different NRT options.
Quit Smoking Medication Card
The Quit Smoking Medication Card can be used to supplement the Resource Guide. This card provides a high-level overview of tobacco cessation prescription medication options, and highlights the Michigan Tobacco Quitline. Providers can use this as a discussion tool with patients interested in quitting smoking.
The card can be used as a flat card, or folded in half to form a booklet.
Health Systems, Hospitals, and Departments
I would love to have it in each of our patient rooms to give to patients whenever the topic comes up.
It’s very detailed with respect to exactly how to use each of the nicotine replacements, which is frankly a useful resource for me as I’m counseling patients.
