Watch an EmmiDecide Clip on Chronic Low Back Pain
Helping people take an informed step in their right direction through shared decision making, EmmiDecide® is a suite of online, interactive decision aids that help improve preference-sensitive decision making. In a comforting, conversational way, the programs walk people through treatment options associated with a condition or procedure, increase knowledge, reduce decisional conflict and help balance values and choice.
And, by driving shared decision making, EmmiDecide facilitates more meaningful conversations between patient and provider. As individual interactions with EmmiDecide programs are documented and tracked, clinicians can easily assess the patient’s questions and treatment concerns.
Shared decision making helps people choose treatments that match their personal preferences. For example, people suffering with chronic hip, knee or back pain report that they are leaning toward less invasive treatment options after participating in shared decision making.1
