The National Institutes of Health’s Clinical Center, the clinical research hospital at NIH, has the distinction of being the first federal medical facility to receive a Stage 7 Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM) Award from HIMSS Analytics.

EMRAM is a methodology for evaluating the progress and impact of electronic medical record systems for hospitals, which includes eight stages (0-7) that measure a hospital’s implementation and utilization of IT applications. The NIH Clinical Center joins an elite group of 2,200 hospitals out of 32,000 in the HIMSS Analytics database that have reached Stage 7 certification for inpatient care—the highest attainable level, which measures the extent to which an organization has adopted the use of EMRs to care for patients and improve their health outcomes.
