In March, HIMSS Analytics kicked off their Certified Consultant Training program at the HIMSS Innovation Center. HIMSS Analytics Certified Consultants work with providers and health systems to navigate the various maturity models offered by the HIMSS Analytics Advisory Services.
These training sessions provide consultants with the opportunity to become experts on the various models created by HIMSS Analytics to test the maturity of health IT systems within clinical settings. These models include the Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM), Adoption Model for Analytics Maturity (AMAM) and Continuity of Care Maturity Model (CCMM).
James E. Gaston, Senior Director, Healthcare Advisory Services Group with HIMSS Analytics led the training session and walked consultants through the elements of each maturity model and the related validation processes. Each model ranks organizations on a stage 0-7 scale, based on their compliance with a number of metrics designed to measure an organization’s technology and process capabilities. This data collection provides organizations with a benchmark to understand their current capabilities and determine a strategy to advance its technology, analytics, and/or care coordination.
