Contrary to conventional wisdom, new research from the HIMSS Analytics Database (derived from the Dorenfest IHDS+ DatabaseTM) has identified both general medical/surgical hospitals, and academic medical centers, that have successfully implemented almost fully automated or paperless electronic medical records as measured by HIMSS Analytics' Electronic Medical Records Adoption Model (EMRAM).
Hospital Size Doesn't Matter For EMR Sophistication, Says HIMSS Analytics White Paper, USA
Although the size of the hospital appears to have little impact on the successful implementation of an electronic medical records system, things are much different in the ambulatory (physician) space. Unfortunately, smaller physician offices are still at a disadvantage when it comes to successfully implementing EMR software, as compared to their larger practice peers. More needs to be done to help these smaller ambulatory care settings successfully use healthcare information technology.ReplyDelete
