Accountable care is fast becoming a healthcare requirement, and patient education is an important part of any accountable care effort. Emmi Solutions has been providing patient engagement products for the last decade, and early this year it made all its Web-based products accessible on mobile devices. Physicians can recommend information for patients, and patients can access that information on their iPads, iPhones, and Android devices, explains Emmi Solutions CEO Devin Gross.
Physicians can use Emmi's products to follow up with patients after office visits, providing information on preventative or treatment options and help with medical decisions. Patients can view or read the material when and where they want to.
About 10% of people currently use Emmi products through mobile devices, Gross says, but he expects that number to increase.
