EMMA- If you are a poly-pharmacy patient (i.e. taking 4 or more prescription medications), managing your prescription medications is difficult.

Only EMMA® meets the regulatory requirements for Remote Medication Management. Moreover, only EMMA® can manage the dangerous medications such as narcotics, anti-depressants, sleeping pills and other controlled substances.
