Lucile Packard Children's achieves HIMSS Stage 7 Award

HIMSS has recognized Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford and Stanford Children's Health in Palo Alto, Calif., for advancements in a digital environment by giving them the Stage 7 Award on the EMR Adoption Model scale.

The hospital received the Stage 7 Award, and all 167 of its network practices received the Stage 7 Ambulatory Award.

Stage 7 is the highest level a hospital can reach in HIMSS' EMR Adoption Model. In the second quarter of 2015, just 3.7 percent of U.S. hospitals achieved Stage 7.

"Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford and Stanford Children's Health have definitely earned their recognition as an HIMSS Analytics Stage 7 organization for both acute care and ambulatory care," said John P. Hoyt, executive vice president of HIMSS Analytics. "As a leader in serving the greater San Francisco and Northern California region, they have uniquely utilized the deployment of a comprehensive, enterprisewide EHR to lead clinical transformation and begin the development of a continuity of care record. This leading enterprise has also begun to mine their wealth of data for not only direct patient and population health improvement, but also to continue their high level of excellence in providing peer-reviewed, published research for the worldwide children's health community."
