Most hospitals sit on the second-highest level of the EMR Adoption Model, an eight-stage roadmap developed by Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society subsidiary HIMSS Analytics.

The EMR Adoption Model, which runs from Stage 0 to Stage 7, measures the degree to which a hospital utilizes its EMR functions. Hospitals are scored on standards related to digital imaging, interoperability and data security, among other capabilities.

Here's how all 5,487 registered U.S. hospitals stacked up in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Stage 0: 1.4 percent

Stage 1: 1.5 percent

Stage 2: 1.8 percent

Stage 3: 12 percent

Stage 4: 10.2 percent

Stage 5: 32.9 percent

Stage 6: 33.8 percent

Stage 7: 6.4 percent
