All hospitals that earned HIMSS Analytics Stage 7 in 2018

Each year, HIMSS Analytics assesses hospitals across the globe to determine the extent to which they've implemented various health IT functions.

HIMSS Analytics, a subsidiary of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, uses eight-stage benchmarking models for this task.

The group's three most established benchmarking models — the Adoption Model for Analytics Maturity, EMR Adoption Model and Outpatient EMR Adoption Model — all run from Stage 0 to Stage 7, with Stage 7 representing the highest designation.
