A Unique Engagement Approach and Updated Company Brand Highlight How to Effectively Empower People in their Health and Wellbeing

September 16, 2015 – Chicago, IL – Emmi Solutions, provider of superior patient engagement solutions for healthcare provider and payer organizations, is presenting at Stanford’s Medicine X conference taking place on Sept. 25-27. The conference, held at the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge, brings together innovative thinkers to exchange ideas, learn about emerging technologies, and inspire human-centered approaches to empowering people to become active participants in their health and wellbeing.

Geri Lynn Baumblatt, executive director of patient engagement for Emmi, will discuss, “Creating a Participatory Healthcare Future: Designing Emotionally-Intelligent Multimedia Decision Aids” at 11:10 a.m. Pacific time on Sept. 27. She will share insights around Emmi’s approach to supporting shared decision making, including combining an intimate understanding of people with behavioral science expertise and human-centered design to create decision aids that empathize, explain and empower people to make informed preference-sensitive treatment decisions.

This approach is central to the company’s newly launched refreshed brand. Along with shortening its communicative name to Emmi, they are unveiling a new visual identity and key messaging that emphasizes their superior approach to patient engagement, including a new tagline (Expertly Designed to Drive Results), a new services descriptor (Empowered People | Improved Relationships | Healthier Populations) and an updated logo. The company’s new website will go-live the week of Oct. 26.


Empowered People | Improved Relationships | Healthier Populations


“We have always viewed patient engagement as an opportunity to empower people to take a more active role in their health and, by extension, improve performance and outcomes for our clients. But, in recent years, that term has become overused and even misused. So, we determined now was the time to more effectively communicate our deep-rooted commitment to, and differentiated approach for, enabling our clients to empower people to become not only partners and participants in their care, but ultimately owners of their health and wellbeing”, says Devin Gross, Emmi’s chief executive officer.

“Fundamentally, Emmi understands people and what is required to drive meaningful and sustainable behavior change, which is applied in our multimedia solutions,” says Geri Lynn Baumblatt. “I’m excited to share how we connect with people in ways they understand and can relate to, while fostering an emotional connection between our clients and the people they serve over time.”

Ultimately, any patient engagement solution provider must be able to demonstrate a return on engagement for the sponsoring healthcare organization. Through its tracking and reporting functionality, Emmi consistently proves its ability to improve operational and financial performance, scale population health management, enhance quality care transitions, and improve the patient experience.
