Newswise — DURHAM, N.C. – Duke Health has become the first health care institution in the U.S. to be awarded the highest honor for analytic capabilities by HIMSS Analytics, a global healthcare IT market intelligence, research and standards organization.
The Adoption Model for Analytics Maturity (AMAM) is an international model that progressively measures and advances an organization’s analytical capabilities across 8 stages of maturity (Stage 0 – Stage 7). Duke Health achieved Stage 7, indicating an ability to leverage predictive, personalized and prescriptive analytics across our care environments.
“I am extremely proud of this recognition, because it underscores the multidisciplinary teamwork needed to deploy advanced analytics solutions that serve our patients, our physicians, and our community," said Jeffrey Ferranti, M.D., vice president and chief information officer, professor of pediatrics and medical informatics. “These solutions require a tight partnership between clinicians, operational leaders, informaticians, and statisticians. Our journey to AMAM Stage 7 allowed us to foster these relationships, and build the collaborative teams necessary to improve health through analytics.”
“Duke Health continues to lead health care with their innovative and progressive Analytics Center of Excellence (ACE) as well as promoting a strong analytics culture that both enable and drive data driven decision making for the betterment of care.” – James E. Gaston, MBA, FHIMSS, Sr. Director, healthcare Advisory Services Group, HIMSS Analytics.
Duke is the only health system in the country to achieve Stage 7 status for all three domains of inpatient, outpatient and analytics excellence. Duke Health received Ambulatory O-EMRAM Stage 7 in June 2016 and Acute EMRAM Stage 7 in January 2017.
