IDEAL Health Consultants HIMSS EMRAM Support

HIMSS EMRAM is globally accepted as the best means of measuring a hospital’s digital maturity, with Stage 7 its highest level.

Many Trusts are now recognising the importance of advancing up the EMRAM scale to demonstrate best practices for quality and patient safety or simply to make the case for increased funding to expedite their journey to digital maturity. This is particularly relevant to the Global Digital Exemplar Trusts (GDEs), who have been set the challenge of reaching EMRAM Stage 7.
