Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Adoption: Your Hospital's EMR Score
Case Study of Health Care Providers with Electronic Health Records - HIMSS Analytics
HIMSS Analytics, the authoritative source on EMR adoption trends, devised the EMR Adoption Model to track EMR progress at 5,000+ hospitals and health systems as they work toward creating a paperless patient record environment. HIMSS Analytics supports improved decision making for healthcare organizations and healthcare IT companies by collecting and analyzing healthcare organization data.
These Analytics relate to IT processes and environments, products, IS department costs, IS department management metrics, healthcare delivery trends and purchasing related decisions. HIMSS Analytics is a wholly-owned, not-for-profit subsidiary of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).
