- Duke Health is the first US institution to reach Stage 7 on the HIMSS Analytics Adoption Model for Analytics Maturity (AMAM), a companion to the popular EMRAM framework from HIMSS gauging electronic health record and health IT maturity.
“Duke Health continues to lead health care with their innovative and progressive Analytics Center of Excellence, as well as promoting a strong analytics culture that both enable and drive data driven decision making for the betterment of care,” said James E. Gaston, MBA, FHIMSS, Sr. Director, healthcare Advisory Services Group, HIMSS Analytics.
Stage 7 status indicates an organization’s ability to leverage predictive, personalized and prescriptive analytics across care environments.
Duke is the only health system in the country to reach a Stage 7 status for all three domains of inpatient, outpatient, and analytics excellence.
“I am extremely proud of this recognition, because it underscores the multidisciplinary teamwork needed to deploy advanced analytics solutions that serve our patients, our physicians, and our community," said Jeffrey Ferranti, MD, vice president and chief information officer, professor of pediatrics and medical informatics.
“These solutions require a tight partnership between clinicians, operational leaders, informaticians, and statisticians. Our journey to AMAM Stage 7 allowed us to foster these relationships, and build the collaborative teams necessary to improve health through analytics.”
