HIMMS 7 AwardHIMSS Analytics Stage 7 hospitals are considered to be completely paperless. In 2005, HIMSS launched the EMR Adoption Model to track adoption of EMR applications within hospitals and health systems. The EMRAM scores hospitals in the HIMSS Analytics Database on their progress in completing eight stages, with the goal of reaching Stage 7– the pinnacle of an environment where paper charts are no longer used to deliver patient care.
