Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model Directory » Concepts

The Electronic Medical Record Adoption Method (EMRAM) is an eight-step process that allows healthcare organizations to analyze their level of EMR adoption, chart their accomplishments and track their progress against other healthcare organizations across the country. Each of the stages is measured by cumulative capabilities and all capabilities within each stage must be reached before moving to the next stage. All lower-level stages must be completed before a higher level will be considered completed. There is also an ambulatory, A-EMRAM, specific to outpatient services. (Source: himssanalytics.org)
