Sitges, Barcelona 27-29 May 2018
During the HIMSS Europe & Health 2.0 Conference, a number of hospitals, organisations and individuals who are making a difference in the healthcare sector will be recognised for their success and their efforts. This year’s award categories are:
HIMSS Analytics Europe will award European hospitals that have achieved the highest scores on the EMR Adoption Model (EMRAM).
The EMR Adoption Model (EMRAM) is an eight-stage model that allows you to track your progress against other healthcare organisations around Europe and across the world. This eight-stage (0 – 7) maturity model measures the adoption and utilisation of EMR functions required to achieve a paperless environment that harness technology to support optimised patient care.
