Honored for EMR Sophistication, HIMSS Analytics Announces Stage 6 Hospitals
Date:2/26/2009

Only 42 out of the more than 5,000 US hospitals tracked by HIMSS Analytics has achieved this recognition for implementation of the electronic medical record

Chicago (Vocus) February 26, 2009 -- As the country moves to transform healthcare with the passing of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, 42 US hospitals recognized as a Stage 6 by HIMSS Analytics serve as role models in healthcare IT adoption for other healthcare systems just beginning this process. Achieving electronic medical record sophistication, these hospitals have achieved significant advancement in their information technology capabilities as measured by the EMR Adoption Model (EMRAM).

HIMSS Analytics developed the EMRAM in 2005 as a methodology for evaluating the progress and impact of electronic medical record (EMR) systems for acute care delivery environments. With an almost paperless environment, Stage 6 hospitals are positioned to successfully address many of the expected industry transformations, such as HIPAA Claims Attachment, pay for performance, and government quality reporting programs. There are a total of 8 stages (0-7) on the EMRAM with the goal of reaching Stage 7 - operating in an environment where paper charts are not used to manage the delivery of patient care, and clinical data is used for performance improvement and analytics of care delivery.

"Only 0.5 percent of hospitals (tracked through the HIMSS Analytics Database) have achieved Stage 6 capabilities," said Mike Davis, executive vice president, HIMSS Analytics. "The hospitals we rank as Stage 6 have implemented advanced clinical applications that improve patient safety and care delivery outcomes." The list includes hospital systems and single hospitals with a total of 42 hospitals at the Stage 6 level.

The hospitals will be honored at HIMSS09 at the first ever Stage 7 Awards reception on Monday,
