Patient Education

Woman on computerWelcome 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.
