challenges with chantix16
Challenges with Chantix
  • The provider sends the Rx to the pharmacy, but client never calls the QL to initiate cessation coaching.
  • When the Rx does not reach the pharmacy, it results in a delay in med distribution.
  • Rx scripts are signed but incomplete, illegible or wrong medication amount prescribed.
  • Rx scripts are faxed to local pharmacy rather than central pharmacy.
  • Lack of follow through from provider (no fax sent).
successes with chantix
Successes with Chantix
  • Rx mailed directly to participant’s home SD address, no need to go to pharmacy which is critical in rural areas.
  • Central pharmacy tracks amount of Rx received by participant so as not to exceed 3-month supply.
  • Ease of QL client in receiving Rx through the mail and coaching over the phone (no travel).
  • Physician referrals increased to 44% of all QL callers.
  • Quit Rates have significantly improved.
