A report from HiMSS Analytics looked at the Thomson Reuters’ 100 Top US Hospitals and correlated the data with the HiMSS Analytics Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM). Findings concluded that those with higher EMRAM ratings were also ranked higher on the Thomson Reuters report.

EHR Adoption Rates Higher Among Top Ranked Hospitals Researchers found that:

21% of Thomson Reuters' top 100 U.S. hospitals in 2010 were at Stage 5 or higher of EMRAM, compared with nearly 9% of all U.S. hospitals; and

14% of Thomson Reuters' top 100 U.S. hospitals in 2009 were in Stages 5 to 7 of EMRAM, compared with 6% of all U.S. hospitals (Monegain, Healthcare IT News, 4/18).

John Hoyt -- executive vice president of HIMSS Analytics -- in a statement said, "The very strong correlation between Thomson Reuters' 100 Top Hospitals and hospitals at higher levels on the EMRAM model shows the benefits of deploying advanced clinical applications in the delivery of health care in the U.S. hospitals."
