RICHMOND HILL, Ont. – Mackenzie Health has been recognized by HIMSS Analytics for achieving Stage 6 on the HIMSS Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Adoption Model (EMRAM). Mackenzie Health is the first Canadian hospital with a full-suite Epic EMR and one of four Ontario community hospitals to have achieved this designation to date.
While approximately 32 percent of hospitals have received Stage 6 designation in the United States of America, only 1 percent of Canadian hospitals have achieved this level of functionality in their EMR (Q2 2017 data).
“We are extremely proud of our entire team’s pioneering efforts to be the first Canadian hospital with a full-suite Epic EMR to reach EMRAM Stage 6,” said Richard Tam (pictured), executive vice president and chief administrative officer, Mackenzie Health. “This designation is a testament to Mackenzie Health’s commitment to creating a world-class health experience and sets a new standard for how care is delivered in our community and at the health system level.”
