25/10/2012 – HIMSS Analytics Europe announced that it will be awarding EMRAM Stage 6 & 7 awards to hospitals from France, Spain and the Netherlands at its annual CIO Summit taking place in Mallorca, November 18-20, 2012. The winners will be receiving their awards at the Awards Dinner on November 19th.
The European EMR Adoption Model (EMRAM) has been adapted to meet the unique needs of European Healthcare Institutions as a methodology for evaluating the progress and impact of electronic medical record systems in hospitals. Tracking their progress in completing eight stages (0-7), hospitals can review the implementation and utilization of information technology applications with the intent of reaching Stage 7, which represents a superior electronic patient record environment.
“Stage 6 & 7 hospitals provide best practices that other healthcare organizations can study as they strive to use EMR applications to improve patient safety, clinical outcomes and patient care delivery efficiency,” said Uwe Buddrus, General Manager, HIMSS Analytics Europe.
