Meeting Demand for Elective Procedures

Providers need to be ready for pent up demand for elective procedures. Managing patients efficiently and safely becomes the key challenge. Failing to meet patients’ perioperative questions can run to $1 million a year from cancelled surgeries.

Give your patients the tools to help them understand what to expect

Patients and families who are properly informed and prepared are more likely to have realistic expectations of their hospital stay or outpatient experience, a more cooperative relationship with their caregivers, and a more positive feeling about the hospital or surgery center. Emmi can play a key role with preparation, education, and expectation-setting by providing:

  • Interactive multimedia programs that explain the patient’s surgical journey
  • Printable patient education leaflets to support surgical preparation and discharge care instructions
  • Post-discharge calls to track patient recovery progress and report concerning symptoms to care team
I think that this is one of the best informative programs that there is for people considering bypass! I am thankful that my Dr. required us to do this program. This helped me understand a lot more about my surgery and what to expect in the weeks and months to come. It also gave helpful ideas and insights into food and the changes that will take place after I return to eating food. Thanks for the security that my decision was the right one for me.
