Fax to Assist

What is Fax to Assist?     

Fax to Assist is an exciting and convenient way for you to refer your clients to Maryland's Quitline to help them quit smoking.

Who is eligible to become Fax to Assist certified?     

All Maryland healthcare providers and other professionals who are interested in helping their clients quit smoking are eligible and encouraged to use Fax to Assist (although only providers and others who are employed by a HIPAA-covered entity will receive feedback from the Quitline for the clients they refer). 

Goal:  This training teaches the nuts and bolts of how to use the Fax-to-Assist referral program providing you a convenient and more immediate way to refer clients who smoke to Maryland’s Quitline for counseling services.  Trainees receive information on Quitline services, directions on how to make fax referrals, and materials to begin a fax referral program in your organization.  HIPAA covered entities can also get feedback on these referrals from the Quitline.

Who is the training audience:  Any medical, social services, or other healthcare providers, or other professionals interested in helping clients who smoke to quit.
