Uniquely positioned at the intersection of data and insight, HIMSS' research and analytics arm, HIMSS Analytics is a global healthcare IT market intelligence, research and standards organisation that collects, analyses and distributes essential health IT data.
The largest and most robust healthcare dataset
HIMSS Analytics offers the largest and most robust healthcare IT dataset in the world, built through information curated from lasting relationships with healthcare providers and collection from policy makers and research organisations around the world. Entirely distinct from patient data, this information relates to products, costs, metrics, trends and purchase decisions.
A roadmap for effective EMR adoption and usage
HIMSS Analytics has created the EMR Adoption Model (EMRAM), an eight-stage model that allows you to track your progress against other healthcare organisations around Europe and across the world. The model measures the adoption and utilisation of EMR functions required to achieve a paperless environment that harness technology to support optimised patient care.
A strategic framework to guide continuity of care implementation
Created to help optimise outcomes for health system and patient alike, the Continuity of Care Maturity Model (CCMM) outlines the progressive capabilities healthcare organisations need to possess in order to seamlessly coordinate patient care across a continuum of care sites and providers. This global maturity model addresses the convergence of interoperability, information exchange, care coordination, patient engagement and analytics with the ultimate goal of holistic individual and population health management.
