HIMSS 2013 iHIT Study - Executive Summary

Health information technology (HIT) has the ability to provide enhanced access to the clinical information needed to support patient care. Since the iHIT Study was last released in 2006, organizations have become increasingly sophisticated in technological solutions in place at their organization. According to the HIMSS Analytics Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM)SM, at the end of 2006, less than one-quarter of U.S. hospitals (22 percent) had achieved EMRAM Stage 3 or higher on the EMRAM model; by the end of 2012, more than three-quarters of U.S. hospitals (77 percent) had achieved a minimum of EMRAM Stage 3.[1] EMRAM Stage 3 represents an important threshold because it represents the minimum level at which organizations begin to use key nursing applications such as clinical documentation and clinical decision support with error checking.
