"HITECH is achieving its intended result of encouraging increased implementation and meaningful use of electronic health records among hospitals ." - John Hoyt, EVP, HIMSS Analytics
HIMSS Analytics measured the sophistication of hospital EHR systems by conducting surveys and comparing reported data against its Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model. Overall, 104 facilities -- or 1.8% of U.S. hospitals -- have earned Stage 7 status, while 430 facilities -- or 7.3% of U.S. hospitals -- have earned Stage 6 status, according to the analysis.
