Helping Institutions to Further Improve Patient Engagement
Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today that its Lexicomp
Integrated Patient Education solution has been integrated into EmmiEngage™, a patient engagement platform offered by
Emmi™ Solutions. This integration will help foster patient's understanding of their medical care by allowing clinicians to direct patients to information on topics such as medications, conditions and procedures from beyond the point of care.
The Lexicomp Integrated Patient Education solution allows clinicians across the continuum of care to provide reliable information regarding medications, procedures, conditions, and healthy living as well as discharge instructions to patients and family members at the point of care through integration with their EMR/HIS or other healthcare applications. To accommodate the needs of an institution's system, multiple delivery options are available, including HL7 InfoButton, APIs, web services, and flat files. By integrating this content into Emmi Solution's patient engagement platform, clinicians can direct their patients to this same content after they have left the close care of clinical staff, offering consistency of information and helping to improve patient retention of healthcare instructions.
"As healthcare organizations seek the most efficient and effective ways to enhance patient education initiatives, the Integrated Patient Education solution coupled with a solution like EmmiEngage provides an innovative foundation for the future of healthcare delivery," stated David Del Toro, Vice President & General Manager, Clinical Drug Information, Wolters Kluwer Health, Clinical Solutions.
"We are excited to partner with Wolters Kluwer Health," said Devin Gross, CEO of Emmi Solutions. "Our mutual understanding of the importance of the engaged patient beyond the point of care will contribute greatly to patient knowledge, satisfaction and overall quality of care."
