Mercy Selects Emmi Solutions to Support and Educate Patients

Patient Engagement Technology to Transform Care Approach

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Nov 11, 2014) -  Mercy, the fifth largest Catholic health care system in the U.S., has selected Emmi Solutions, a leader in outcomes-driven patient engagement, to empower patients in their healthcare decisions and improve preventative care. Mercy has a long history of employing technology to improve care delivery, besides being one of the first to put in place an integrated electronic health record (EHR) across multiple states, Mercy's analytic tools and other efforts aimed at improving patient care have also placed it on the American Hospital Association's "Most Wired" list.

"One of our main priorities is delivering essential information while still providing a high quality patient experience to people in and out of our facilities," explained Pam Holt, director of Patient Education at Mercy. "We've worked with Emmi Solutions before and they're making a measurable difference in improving our patients' satisfaction and knowledge."

"Emmi Solutions enables our teams to have more impactful relationships with our patients but also easily integrates into our existing clinical systems and workflows," said Janet Pursley, vice president of Care Management at Mercy. "Their consultative approach to implementation also helps ensure successful use of their programs across our entire system."

Aligned with Mercy's mission to provide optimum care to their community, Emmi® interactive programs and calls enhance doctor-patient relationships by providing understandable and actionable information at times the patient wishes to receive it. Emmi programs utilize simple language, compelling visuals and empathetic narration to help people make sense of complex medical information. The web-based programs can be shared with family and friends, guiding individuals to have meaningful conversations about their treatment with all involved in the process.
