Wolters Kluwer helps health organizations empower and educate health consumers with free COVID-19 video by Emmi

Video designed for hospital websites, patient and member portals and social sharing.

Wolters Kluwer, Health is helping health consumers stay healthy and informed about COVID-19 with trustworthy information through an easy-to-understand video, Understanding COVID-19 and How to Stay Safe. The video makes Emmi’s® proven behavioral design and multimedia patient engagement expertise available to any organization globally using current, evidence-based information about coronavirus from UpToDate®.

“It can be overwhelming for individuals to figure out how to protect themselves and their loved ones with all of the conflicting information and, at times, misinformation about COVID-19, with the additional challenge that guidelines and recommendations are continually changing as we learn more about the virus,” said Denise Basow, MD, CEO, Clinical Effectiveness at Wolters Kluwer, Health. “By creating this Emmi video, our objective was to offer a trustworthy and easy-to-access resource clinicians and hospitals can confidently share with their patients, knowing that the content is reviewed by the UpToDate editorial team.”
