Patient Education

Patient Education
In order to educate our patients, Houston Methodist is proud to provide access to web-based multi media patient education programs, called Emmi. These user-friendly programs educate patients about upcoming surgical procedures and chronic conditions. Emmi programs support our mission of providing a unique patient experience. Patients appreciate the opportunity to review Emmi programs at their own pace and in the comfort of their own homes. You can also share the programs with family and friends who assist in your care.

There are currently over 100 Emmi programs available with new programs continually being created.
