HIMSS Analytics now is tracking the progress of ambulatory electronic health records adoption in addition to its long-standing 0-7 scale of EHR adoption in hospitals.

The firm’s Ambulatory EMR Adoption Model is tracking information technology capabilities for more than 28,000 ambulatory facilities that are part of a hospital or delivery system. Of the 9,247 facilities that have reported data to HIMSS Analytics, 48 percent are at paper-based Stage 0, 34 percent are at Stage 2, 1.2 percent are at Stage 6 and none have reached Stage 7.

HIMSS Analytics also will offer the service, which can be adapted to include independent practices, in Canada, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. More information is at himssanalytics.org.
