We're on a mission...

to engage and empower millions of people to quit smoking.


By better serving those who want to quit, and better engaging those who aren’t yet ready.




Our Approach

Pivot

Pivot combines innovative mobile-sensor technology with the best evidence-based clinical strategies, and delivers them via a simple, accessible smartphone app. There are four main components designed to engage, raise awareness, and help users achieve long-lasting change.

A Vento Device

Mobile breath sensor

The Bluetooth-enabled Pivot Breath Sensor is an educational and motivational tool that measures carbon monoxide (a chemical in cigarette smoke) in the breath, helping users see how smoking affects their carbon monoxide levels. *

The Online Dashboard

Personal dashboard

As users log their cigarettes and take breath samples, the Pivot app displays these and other metrics to help users raise their awareness of their smoking behaviors and track changes in real time.

Evidence-based

Tailored, evidence-based content

Pivot’s curriculum delivers established, evidence-based counseling and quit strategies recommended by the medical community and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It does this via a smartphone app that uses activities and interactions that are tailored to the user’s schedule and needs.

Evidence-based

Personal coaching

Users receive personalized support and feedback from health coaches trained in smoking cessation, to help them develop the motivation, confidence, and skills they’ll need for lasting change. This support begins on day one and lasts for the duration of the year-plus program.

The Pivot Journey

Pivot’s unique six-stage program is designed to engage smokers earlier than other cessation plans, without pressuring them to quit. It begins by helping them become more aware of their smoking and more confident in their ability to do something about it. Then, for those who decide they’re ready, Pivot helps them build and execute a quit plan, with one-on-one coaching support until their quit is stable.
