CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) client Hendrick Health System, located in Abilene, TX, has achieved the prestigious Stage 7, the highest level attainable, on the HIMSS Analytics Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM). This award recognizes Hendrick Health System’s adoption of technology to optimize patient care in a seamless patient record environment using a single Electronic Health Record (EHR) throughout the enterprise.
The HIMSS Analytics Electronic Medical Record Adoption Models use a methodology that measures progress and cumulative capabilities of EMR systems within organizations. According to HIMSS Analytics, there are eight stages (0-7) that measure a hospital or medical group implementation and utilization of information technology applications. The final stage, Stage 7, represents the most advanced patient record environment. The validation process to confirm a group has reached Stage 7 includes a site visit by an executive from HIMSS Analytics and former or current chief information officers to ensure an unbiased evaluation of the Stage 7 environments.
