Technical Assistance and Training

Free technical assistance is available for healthcare systems. The University of Massachusetts Medical School’s Center for Tobacco Treatment Research and Training provides free technical assistance and training to Massachusetts health systems to meet Meaningful Use requirements, Patient-Centered Medical Home requirements, and/or Joint Commission standards. Assistance is also available for quality improvement efforts of existing tobacco intervention programs.
