Yet, media and ads were not ‘on-going’ or done with regularity © 2007 WV DHHR / DTP The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate the impact of this personal testimonial media campaign on a statewide tobacco quitline.

10 Janet Wells Media Campaign Janet Wells Media Campaign WV’s “1 st Personal ” Ad Campaign CDC Supplemental Funding allowed for this ‘call to action’ ad to be run in one third of the state’s media market during a 4 month time frame. ~25% increase in calls to the WV quitline, and an estimated 13% increase in enrollment Results from this ad or National Quitline? © 2007 WV DHHR / DTP

11 Summary of the ‘campaign’ study A twelve week media campaign was aired by three television stations with complete coverage to sixteen counties and partial coverage to another seven counties. © 2007 WV DHHR / DTP The remaining thirty-two counties received no coverage and served as control counties. Enrollment data was collected for a thirteen week period for the year of the intervention and for the same thirteen weeks for a year prior to the intervention to adjust for seasonal enrollment fluctuations. A one year return on investment was calculated by projecting health care and lost productivity cost savings compared to the campaign investment. Changes in referral sources were measured as a result of the campaign.

12 Janet Wells Media Campaign Television Coverage Area © 2006 WV DHHR / DTP Partial Coverage Control 34.9 percent of state’s population Another 16.9% of state’s population

13 Initial Janet Wells Media Campaign Analysis © 2007 WV DHHR / DTP For a non-epidemiologist and/or non-researcher: The counties exposed to the television ad campaign were deemed “Coverage Counties” - thus these populations were exposed to the ad campaign. Thus, making a few assumptions, those residents who were exposed to the campaign represented 43 percent of the State’s population. 57% were not exposed to the initial ads in counties received full exposure across the entire county area equal to a population of 633,233 residents. - 7 counties received partial coverage only, equal to a population of 307,483 residents.

14 Initial Janet Wells Media Campaign Analysis © 2007 WV DHHR / DTP For a non-epidemiologist and/or non-researcher: County-level quitline enrollment was collected for the time frame of the Janet Wells campaign (January 17 th thru April 15 th ) for Similar enrollment data from the year prior was obtained for comparison, and ratios were calculated for the coverage and non-coverage areas. Calculations were made to determine if enrollments were higher or lower, and for actual versus projected enrollments.

15 Initial Janet Wells Media Campaign Analysis © 2007 WV DHHR / DTP In counties where there was complete exposure, at minimum, they experienced almost a 16 percent higher enrollment than the prior year. Partial coverage counties experienced a 9 percent increase in enrollment because of the media campaign.

16 Initial Janet Wells Media Campaign Analysis Return on Investment © 2007 WV DHHR / DTP - In counties where there was complete or partial media exposure, at minimum, there were an additional 250 enrollees due to the campaign. - The WV Quitline experienced a six-month quit rate of 29 percent during this time frame. - At the time, the annual cost savings per quit smoker in WV was $4,884. $354,090. Estimated total annual cost savings of these 250 enrollees was $354,090.

17 Initial Janet Wells Media Campaign Analysis Return on Investment © 2007 WV DHHR / DTP A X B X C = Total Cost Savings Enrollees X Quit Rate X Cost Savings (per quitter) 250 X 0.29 X $4,884 = $354,090 $79,320 Total funding invested in the 2004 Janet Wells Campaign was $79,320 cost savings of $4.46 Thus, the 1-year return on investment was a cost savings of $4.46 for every dollar invested in the initial campaign.

18 Initial 2005 Janet Wells Media Campaign Coverage © 2006 WV DHHR / DTP It can be concluded that the Janet Wells Campaign had a dramatic effect to increase the number of individuals enrolling in and successfully quitting using the West Virginia Quitline.
