NEW YORK, Jan. 2, 2018

NEW YORK, Jan. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Emmy is excited to announce partnerships with leading ambulatory surgery centers in New York City, including Gramercy Surgery (Manhattan and Queens locations), Manhattan Surgery Center and Midtown Surgery Center.

Ambulatory surgery centers are health care facilities focused on providing same-day surgical care, including diagnostic and preventive procedures. New York State requires that patients who undergo procedures involving anesthesia have someone to accompany them home after ambulatory surgery.

Emmy is a platform that allows those who require temporary assistance a way to maintain their independence and privacy. Since our launch in September, we've partnered with 20 healthcare providers in NYC to ensure their patients have a trusted individual to accompany them home after ambulatory procedures. We help our partners cut down on waste from last minute cancellations, reduce patient discharge times, and generate new revenue from patients who would otherwise delay procedures due to lack of accompaniment. Additionally, our built-in platform notification system allows us to serve as a healthcare logistics tool, deploying multiple reminders so a patient never misses a follow-up appointment.
