EMMI: Online Patient Education

Demo EMMI Online Patient Education

Ask your UC San Diego Health doctor about EMMI, our online patient interactive education system.

Used by many prestigious medical institutions around the country, EMMI can help you have a better understanding and level of comfort about a surgical procedure you may be facing. You’ll learn how a procedure works, what to expect when you go home, what to do before and after surgery, the risks, benefits and alternatives. You’ll have the opportunity to identify questions as you think of them, and print a handy reminder sheet to bring to discuss with your doctor during your pre-op visit.

Our hope is that you will be more knowledgeable and confident throughout your treatment process. This is just part of the UC San Diego Health advantage.
