Patient education for you and your family

Knowing what to expect brings peace of mind

The more active you are in your care, the healthier you will be. That’s why we’re partnering with you and your doctor to give you as much information as possible about your health and the procedures your doctor recommends for you.

What is Emmi®?

Preparing for a surgical, diagnostic or medical procedure can be overwhelming, Saint Raphael’s offers a unique, online educational resource called the Emmi® program. An Emmi program translates complex medical procedures into easy-to-understand information, and helps educate you on what to expect before, during and after your surgery or other medical procedure. Knowing what to expect can help you feel more comfortable and may even lead to a faster recovery.

Emmi programs are entirely web-based, so you can view them at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home – or from any computer with an Internet connection. You can also share them with friends or loved ones anywhere in the world. 

If you are scheduled for an upcoming procedure or have a chronic condition, your doctor will give you an access code to view the Emmi program that’s right for you. Use the access code to activate the program online at:
