Office Champions: A Systems Change Approach
In 2009, the AAFP introduced the Office Champions model. The goal of this model is to incorporate the tools and information necessary to improve patient engagement in the area of tobacco cessation. In the context of the patient-centered medical home, Office Champions was developed as a quality improvement, systems-change model to integrate changes into the clinical work flow. Through a coordinated effort by the practice team, health care providers can improve the rate of interventions for tobacco and nicotine dependence, with the goal of improving their patients' health.
