Report:Hospitals with Advanced EMR Systems Report Numerous Benefits

New research from HIMSS Analytics and The Advisory Board shows that hospitals with advanced electronic medical records (EMR) systems report achieving a broad range of benefits from their implementations, including clinical quality, patient safety and operational efficiencies.

The data collected for the report, EMR Benefits and Benefit Realization Methods of Stage 6 and 7 Hospitals, indicates that highly advanced EMR environments can produce substantial benefits for individual hospitals and the healthcare system as a whole. The survey is the first to report results from hospitals that have achieved Stages 6 or Stage 7 on the EMR Adoption Model (EMRAM)SM , providing unique insight into how ERM systems are working for hospitals further along the development track.

The study collected data from 33 chief information officers (CIOs) at Stage 6 or Stage 7 EMRAM hospitals from throughout the country.
