Patient engagement solution for post-acute care released
Emmi has announced a suite of solutions for the post-acute market that support better care transitions and community discharge, the Chicago-based company said.
Care teams can use the Emmi platform to prescribe programs for a patient, receive reports that track progress and select activity related to a patient's health status. Its features include multimedia and interactive voice response calls, which can integrate into an electronic health record.
“Post-acute organizations need a way to engage with patients to improve their quality of care and reduce the likelihood they will return to the hospital. However, staffing challenges make it difficult for patients to receive the kind of one-on-one motivation they need,” said Melissa Purvis, MSN, a post-acute nursing executive and one of the program advisors. “To help reduce avoidable readmissions, patients need a digestible form of education that supplements their interactions with busy staff during post-discharge follow-up.”
