Welcome to Cypress Health Innovation

Operating since 2009, Cypress Health Innovation, LLC provides turnkey solutions for professionals who treat tobacco dependent individuals. The information available on this site was designed primarily for clinicians and administrators who conduct their activities in hospitals, clinics, or other healthcare-related institutions or agencies, although our programs may be adapted to other business environments as well.

We specialize in training professionals and helping organizations develop the necessary structure to deliver evidence-based treatment methods to help clients quit the use of tobacco products. The scope of services ranges from single site clinics to multi-site integrated operations.

Currently, Cypress Health is not providing direct services, however all previously provided services remain available via the ACT Center at The University of Mississippi Medical Center:
