We are very excited to announce that Riverside Medical Center has achieved Stage 7 on the HIMSS Analytics Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM)! The HIMSS Analytics EMRAM incorporates methodology and algorithms to automatically score hospitals around the world relative to their (Electronic Medical Record) EMR capabilities. This eight-stage (0-7) model measures the adoption and utilization of EMR functions towards achieving a near paperless environment that harnesses technology to support optimized patient care. Only about 350 hospitals worldwide have achieved Stage 7.

Choosing to pursue Stage 7 was not taken lightly knowing it would be a multi-year journey that could not be done alone. But knowing that it was the right thing to do in order to help best serve you, our patient, we knew this was the right decision.  We have already seen results of how we’ve been able to improve the care and experience we deliver. One example of our accomplishments is included in the linked article highlighting our use of bedside robotics to enhance care provided to patients that had suffered a stroke.

We have been tremendously fortunate that our team at Riverside has been able to work alongside several partners on this journey, including Cerner Corporation – our EMR platform provider. It was the combination of strength in numbers with our partners and good old fashioned hard work that help get us here.

The future is bright for our hospital and we could not be more excited to continuing to provide you with the best possible care.
