What is Emmi®?
Emmi is a web-based program that takes complex medical information and makes it simple and easy-to-understand. Using a soothing female voice and animation, Emmi helps you prepare for your upcoming procedure or manage your chronic condition.
Often you’ll have questions that you may think aren’t important, or you may have forgotten them as you walked out of the doctor’s office. Maybe you were too embarrassed to ask. Emmi answers frequently asked questions and you can view the program in the comfort of your own home or anywhere that has internet access. You can even share Emmi with friends or family members.
We believe that you, the patient, are the most important member of your health care team. That’s why we offer this free program, which takes you step-by-step through your upcoming procedure (or condition), including:
- Your condition
- Why your doctor has recommended surgery
- What to expect before surgery
- An overview of your procedure
- What to expect after surgery
- Risks and benefits
So, think of Emmi as a friend, a teacher who listens and then provides guidance and coping strategies.
How does it work?
Each Emmi program takes about 20 minutes to watch. You can view them as many times as you like. As you watch the program, you can also write notes and questions that you can print out and bring with you to your next appointment.
Getting Started is Easy!
