McLane Children’s Hospital and Clinics physicians have a new way to help parents and their children get ready for hospital procedures, to learn what to expect when they get to the hospital, or to manage a child’s chronic condition. It is a little like homework on a website, with content delivered at the convenience of the patients and their families.

Emmi programs are online tools that take complex medical information and make it simple and easy-to-understand. The content can be viewed and repeated at a pace making it easy for families to follow. McLane Children’s staff have started using Emmi, and like the results.

Most programs run from 10 to 20 minutes long. Here is a link to see a sample.
