Welcome to Emmi Solutions! Here at the Orthopedic Institute at Jersey City
Medical Center, we want our patients to be empowered and take control
of their healthcare. Our job is to provide you with the tools and information
to do just that. Once you are scheduled for surgery and perhaps even during
your stay here, you will be assigned a personalized computer-based interactive
education program. You can watch it at home, or on any computer, tablet,
or smart phone.
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, you can watch an Emmi program to help you prepare for your
upcoming procedure or manage your chronic condition.
Emmi® programs answers frequently asked questions and you can view the program
in the comfort of your own home or anywhere that has internet access.
During your hospital stay, your nurse can assign you an
Emmi® module that goes over your procedure, your condition, your stay in the
hospital, and your discharge. Laptops are available on every unit and
will be brought to you so that you can watch your
Emmi® module at the bedside. 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 at the end. .
In addition, you will get a special access code so that not only can you
watch the program here during your hospital but you can watch it at home,
or send the link to family and friends who you would like to be involved
in your care.
