The burden of chronic disease is overwhelming to patients and providers alike. Half of all adults have a chronic condition; a quarter of all adults have two or more chronic conditions. Leading chronic conditions include diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and asthma/chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Caring for these patients is challenging, especially for those with co-morbidities. The volume of patients who have to be seen, coupled with the lack of time clinicians can spend with them, can leave care teams feeling overwhelmed and dissatisfied. And patients may feel as if their clinicians are in too much of a hurry to answer all their questions.
The Emmi Chronic Care and Wellness Solution is a tailored package of interactive programs and printable patient education leaflets to help patients:
- Stabilize their chronic condition
- Prevent health crises that can lead to hospitalizations
- Better educate themselves about their illness
- Learn about healthy behaviors and make better decisions
- Deepen their relationship with health providers
What is the Emmi Chronic Care and Wellness Solution?
Collaborate with your chronic care patients to keep them healthy
Patient at Home
Patients receive a call reminding them to schedule an annual wellness visit.
Clinician: “I know learning that you have diabetes is a lot to take in all at once. You’ll be receiving some programs to review at home – take a look when you have time.”
Patients at Home
Patients receive an email or call giving them online access to these recommended Emmi programs. They can watch them on any computer, phone, or other device at their own convenience.
Benefits of Emmi
The Emmi Chronic Care and Wellness Solution can supplement the time patients spend with care teams through interactive multimedia programs, printable patient education leaflets, and outreach phone calls that help them understand their condition better. Patients can watch or read these messages when they want, as many times as they want.
