Organizations are investing significant amount of both capital and operating funds on electronic medical record systems.  These investments are expected to yield improvements in operations, outcomes, job satisfaction and patient engagement.  This discussion explores the link between the EMR investments (EMRAM) and the often overlooked technology investments (INFRAM) that are needed.

The HIMSS Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM) measures clinical outcomes, patient engagement and clinician use of EMR technology to strengthen organizational performance and health outcomes across patient populations.  The internationally applicable EMRAM incorporates methodology and algorithms to score a whole hospital, including inpatient, outpatient and day-case services provided on the hospital campus.                

Healthcare organizations cannot build or improve upon other capabilities required to deliver quality care without a sound infrastructure. If an organization is working with weak infrastructure, they may struggle with digital transformation.
