Southern Illinois Healthcare Partners With Emmi Solutions

Integrating Patient Engagement Technology for a Better Healthcare Experience

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Sep 10, 2014) - Southern Illinois Healthcare has partnered with Emmi Solutions, a leader in outcomes-driven patient engagement, to drive further innovation around improving their patients' health outcomes, experience and wellness. Southern Illinois Healthcare, a three-hospital sytem based in Carbondale, Ill., has long been a proponent of integrating technologies that support their mission of providing the best care possible in and outside the four walls of the hospital. Their care staff are now able to prescribe Emmi Solutions' interactive web-based programs to patients that are personalized to their needs and viewable at any time.

"Technology should be an enabler and an intuitive part of the healthcare process," said David Holland, CIO at Southern Illinois Healthcare. "We chose Emmi Solutions because their programs and expert approach to implementation take into consideration how our doctors and nurses operate day-to-day while also supporting our mission of maintaining a patient-centered care model."

"Healthcare consumers are increasingly seeking personalized care and communication," said Devin Gross, CEO of Emmi Solutions. "Southern Illinois Healthcare is a prime example of an organization responding to this preference; our design and integration capabilities are a natural fit for their advanced workflow and technology infrastructure."

Emmi® programs and interactive call campaigns provide empathetic, understandable and actionable information to foster patient action and make care conversations more impactful. Emmi programs utilize simple language and compelling visuals to make sense of complex medical information. Select programs act as decision aids to support shared decision making by capturing goals and preferences and explaining risks and benefits associated with treatment options. The web-based programs can be shared with family and friends, guiding individuals to have meaningful conversations about their treatment wishes with all involved in the process.
