UC Health achieves HIMSS Stage 7 for EHR Adoption

HIMSS has recognized University of Cincinnati Health and the University of Cincinnati Medical Center with the Stage 7 Award of its EMR Adoption Model.

The EMR Adoption Model evaluates the progress and impact an EMR system has within a healthcare organization, and Stage 7 is the final stage, representing "an advanced patient record environment."

HIMSS also awarded UC Health the Stage 7 Ambulatory Award for 167 of the health system's network practices.

"UC Health has gone above and beyond the EMRAM Stage 7 criteria. They have already extended the closed-loop medication administration process to their infusion clinic and for interventional radiology cases. Combined with a strong population health program, the UC Health team is making a real difference in their community," said John H. Daniels, global vice president of healthcare advisory services group of HIMSS Analytics, in a statement.
