Background
The Mississippi Foundation for Medical Care, Inc., dba Information & Quality Healthcare (IQH), is a non-profit corporation chartered in 1971 in the state of Mississippi. IQH currently serves as the federally designated quality improvement organization for Mississippi under contract to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

IQH has provided quitline tobacco cessation services to Mississippians since 1999 through a grant from The Partnership for a Healthy Mississippi (PHM). The IQH Tobacco Quitline is a charter member of the North American Quitline Consortium (NAQC) and is active with the national network of quitlines. The Tobacco Quitline is structured to work with all types of tobacco use. Protocols based on both Public Health Service-sponsored Clinical Practice Guidelines, Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence and the latest evidence-based research are in place for smoke, spit, and chewing tobacco.
