Emmi and Healthwise forge alliance

Emmi Solutions, a provider of healthcare communication solutions, has forged a strategic alliance with consumer health information and programs provider Healthwise, combining their offerings for the hospital market.

By CBR Staff Writer

Emmi claims that the new product offering, called Emmi + Healthwise, gives hospitals and clinicians information and tools they can prescribe to patients to empower them to take an active role in their care and help them make better health decisions throughout their lives.

Emmi + Healthwise takes Emmi Solutions’s content and a selection of Healthwise Information Therapy services including information on medical procedures, wellness, discharge instructions and chronic disease self-management, and builds them into the Emmi Solutions communications platform.

Emmi has said that the combination creates an engaging and interactive multimedia experience that allows clinicians to prescribe and manage the delivery of consistent, vital health information. The platform also allows for the tracking of information received by patients, which can help hospitals meet quality and regulatory requirements and mitigate risk.

Don Kemper, founder and CEO of Healthwise, said: Emmi + Healthwise will empower patients and support the broad effort to improve our healthcare system. By providing a three-way collaborative communication solution-between consumers, their hospitals and their physicians, we are engaging and motivating the most underutilized resource in this healthcare crisis – patients.
