Nine European Hospitals Receive Awards in Rome

HIMSS EuropeThe analytics unit of HIMSS Europe awarded nine European hospitals with a Stage 6 Award during an awards ceremony at the annual CIO Summit, taking place in Rome from 6 - 7 October.

The awarded hospitals are: Galway Clinic with 146 beds, Azienda Ospedaliera of Vimercate with 527 beds, Zaans Medisch Centrum with 290 beds, Izmir Tire Devlet Hastanesi with 232 beds, Rize Devlet Hastanesi, Rize with 293 beds, Mersin Erdemli Devlet Hastanesi with 159 beds, Bursa Dörtçelik Hastanesi with 350 beds, Croydon University Hospital with 518 beds and Polyclinique de la Clarence with 205 beds.

It is the first time that hospitals in the UK and Ireland receive an EMRAM Stage 6 Award. There are now three Stage 6 hospitals in Italy, nine in France, eleven in the Netherlands and five in Turkey. In total there are fifty-two (52) hospitals in Europe recognized with the Stage 6, and two hospitals with the Stage 7, one in Germany and one in Spain.

The European EMR Adoption Model (EMRAM) has been adapted to meet the unique needs of European Healthcare Institutions as a methodology for evaluating the progress and impact of electronic medical record systems in hospitals. Tracking their progress in completing eight stages (0‐7), hospitals can review the implementation and utilization of information technology applications with the intent of reaching Stage 7, which represents a superior electronic patient record environment.

Stage 6 & 7 hospitals provide best practices that other healthcare organizations can study as they strive to use EMR applications to improve patient safety, clinical outcomes and patient care delivery efficiency.

Rainer Herzog, Managing Director, HIMSS Europe "At this year's CIO Summit we are happy to award not only the largest number of Stage 6 hospitals to date, but also hospitals from a range of countries, including two "newcomers" - Ireland and UK. Especially noteworthy is that four of eight award recipients are from Turkey, which reflects the great commitment of the Turkish health authorities to embracing new technologies for the betterment of healthcare."
