At O’Connor Hospital our patients are the most important members of our health care team, and we want them to have the best and safest experience possible. That is why we have collaborated with Emmi Solutions to help our patients learn more about their health conditions with free, online, interactive videos that take complex medical information and make it simple and easy to understand.
Patients can watch Emmi programs anywhere that they have access to a computer, electronic tablet or mobile device, and share the information with family, friends or anyone who may be involved in their care. Health topics include: asthma, diabetes, low back pain, depression hypertension, coronary artery disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and stroke among others. Each program is about 25 minutes long and most programs are also available in Spanish.
Basically, the healthcare professional talks to the
patient about his or her health condition and which Emmi program to view. The patient is then provided with a unique access code specific to his or her procedure or condition to view the video.
