Are EMRAM Stage 7 Nurses More Successful?

Are EMRAM Stage 7 Nurses More Successful?

A 2020 KLAS-HIMSS Analytics Collaboration

Authored by:  Bryant Wood and Connor Bice, 02/06/2020 | Read Time: 4 minutes

Health information technology is a commonly cited source of clinician frustration and burnout. But what about clinicians at organizations that have reached the peak of EHR adoption—HIMSS EMRAM Stage 7? Do their clinicians report more or less EHR frustration? In 2019, KLAS (in cooperation with HIMSS Analytics) examined this question as it relates to physicians. This 2020 follow-up explores how an organization’s EMRAM stage impacts EHR satisfaction among nurses.To conduct the analysis, KLAS analyzed the Arch Collaborative survey responses of over 34,000 nurses from hundreds of individual hospitals. Throughout this report, responses from the nurses are grouped by organization, with each organization designated as either Stage 7, Stage 6, or Stage Not Validated, depending on the publicly available information from HIMSS Analytics.
