At The Methodist Hospital System and Methodist Cardiovascular Surgery Associates (MCSA), we believe the more active role you take in your care, the healthier you will be. Most medical decisions are ultimately in your hands and we want to give you as much information as possible about your health. For this reason, we are proud to offer free, unique, educational programs called Emmi.

What are Emmi Programs?

Emmi is a series of web-based programs that make complex medical information easy to understand. They use a soothing female voice, animation and easy-to-read text, to help you prepare for your upcoming procedure or manage your chronic condition.

Getting Started is Easy!

Each Emmi program takes about 20 minutes to watch. You can view them as many times as you like. As you watch the program, you can also write notes and questions that you can print out and bring with you to your next appointment.
