Truven Health Micromedex Solutions Provide Patient Education Resources to Enhance Emmi Solutions Platform: Ann Arbor-based Truven Health Analytics today announced a new partnership with Emmi Solutions, a leader in outcomes-based patient engagement. Truven Health Analytics has been selected to be the preferred provider of patient discharge instructions, which is a section of the content in the Emmi patient education library, used to support patient engagement across every stage of care. Integrating Micromedex Patient Education resources, including Micromedex CareNotes patient discharge instructions into the Emmi® platform, which has the ability to prescribe, track, and store patient interactions, will help providers meet meaningful use criteria and regulatory guidelines. CareNotes patient-specific educational materials support hospitals’ goals for Meaningful Use attestation and HCAHPS improvement and, delivered via the Emmi platform, are designed to increase loyalty and hospital preference by providing clinically consistent, patient-centered information when and where patients need it. By integrating a single source of evidence-based education across multiple channels, including the EHR, hospitals can promote clinical consistency across the care continuum through tools that are convenient, easy-to-use, and efficient for clinicians, patients, and consumers. These instructive and educational resources also help organizations address patient health literacy and retention challenges and increase patient understanding and participation in their own care. Micromedex CareNotes provides patient discharge instructions as well as education handouts and engagement resources for the entire continuum of care, including pre-care and inpatient education, as well as discharge education for Diagnosis and Condition, Medication, Laboratory Tests, and more. The EHR-ready resources are designed to work in vendor-specific information systems to help clinicians increase efficiency, educate patients and family members, and improve patient outcomes. CareNotes documents are written at a 5th to 7th grade reading comprehension level and are available in up to 15 languages, which help hospitals reach Joint Commission, Core Measures, and Meaningful Use standards.
