Stage 7 electronic medical record adoption


Currently, Banner Health is among a small percentage of hospitals nationwide to achieve final stage of electronic medical record adoption.

Twenty-one Banner Health facilities have achieved Stage 7, the final stage in the adoption of electronic medical record (EMR) as acknowledged by HIMSS Analytics, a wholly owned nonprofit subsidiary of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society. HIMSS Analytics monitors and recognizes levels of EMR adoption and meaningful use in hospitals in the United States, Canada and other countries.

The Stage 7 recognition by HIMSS Analytics is a compelling example of Banner Health’s emergence as a national leader in health care. Banner Health’s 21 Stage 7 hospitals are among only 92 hospitals in the nation at this top level of EMR adoption. Banner is also recognized by Truven Health Analytics as a Top Five Large Health System in the nation and as a Top Leadership Team/Large System by HealthLeaders magazine.

Banner Health facilities that have achieved Stage 7 status include:

In order to obtain the final stage in the EMR adoption, hospitals must be paperless and be able to share clinical information with other health care facilities, networks, clinics, employers, payers and patients.  At this stage, health care organizations can store and analyze data which is used to improve clinical outcomes and patient experience.
