Purpose of Breakthrough Group

  • Develop an action plan for creating a “seal of approval”

  • Similar in concept to the “Good Housekeeping Seal”, our seal would help consumers identify cessation products and services which are efficacious.

OBJECTIVE 1: Determine best option for the actual “seal of approval”

  • Caution around approving websites

  • Forgery may be an issue

  • Approve categories of products and services rather than brands

  • Take care not to set inappropriate barriers to getting a seal

  • Environmental scan of existing seals

OBJECTIVE 2: From the consumer’s perspective, would a seal work?

  • Gather data on consumer behavior:

    • How do consumers react to a seal of approval?

    • Does it impact behavior

  • Contact CDC’s National Center for Health Marketing as a possible partner, resource, or sponsor in addressing these questions

  • Use marketing experts from Roundtable to develop concept to be tested.

Objective 3: From an organizational perspective, would a seal work?

  • Reach out to organizations that already use/review/credential seals of approval.

  • Review with other organizations the concept of what we propose – Mayo, AMA, Consumer Reports, Underwriters Lab, HON Foundation, Good Housekeeping

  • Understand legal liability

OBJECTIVE 4: Develop minimum standards for a product/service to earn the Seal of Approval

  • Approach an appropriate scientific body (Cochran Review, AHRQ)

  • Identify solid evidence-based clinical practice guidelines.

OBJECTIVE 5: Promote use of Seal of Approval among consumers

  • Develop communications plan

  • Identify credible organizations and appropriate channels of communication

  • Develop effective messages

OBJECTIVE 6: Promote use the Seal of Approval among organizations

  • Contact pharma, etc., to promote the value of earning the Seal of Approval

Reaching Disparate Populations

We will include these groups in the seal development process: –

  • Gathering data on consumer behavior/attitudes.

    • Will people put faith in the seal?

    • Of the organizations that could potentially promote the seal, which are seen as credible?

    • What channels would be most useful for communicating about the seal?

    • Cost vs. seal of approval in purchasing decisions

Key Opportunities for Innovation

  • Is the seal worth pursuing?

    • Would consumers find it valuable/act on it?

    • Is there a business model?

    • Is there a better way to convey the information?

    • If seal concept bears out, how do we promote it?

  • We need to have an evaluation plan in place

  • Impact: Our group’s activities will serve as a blueprint for action for the organization that takes this on.

  • Describe how these activities demonstrate consumer demand principles: User centered design.
