Sutter Health’s Memorial Medical Center in Modesto, Calif., as well as its Palo Alto Medical Foundation clinics throughout the Bay Area, have been recognized with Stage 7 awards by HIMSS Analytics.

Stage 7 represents attainment of the highest level on the Electronic Medical Records Adoption Model (EMRAM), which is used to track EMR progress at hospitals and health systems. During the fourth quarter of 2014, only 3.6 percent of the more than 5,400 U.S. hospitals in the HIMSS Analytics Database received the Stage 7 Award, and only 6.21 percent of the more than 30,000 ambulatory clinics in the HIMSS Analytics™ Database received the Stage 7 Ambulatory Award.

The Sutter Medical Network— serving patients and their families in more than 100 Northern California cities and towns—includes many of California’s top-performing physician organizations as measured annually by the Integrated Healthcare Association, according to a HIMSS press release. “Sutter Health’s EHR implementation is a star example for California and the west coast. The healthcare network expertly involves its medical staff to drive clinical transformation across its hospitals and care centers—all enabled by a comprehensive EHR system. Its care centers consistently use the EHR technology, showing strong system governance and well-delivered education,” John P. Hoyt, executive vice president, HIMSS Analytics, said in a statement.

Sutter Health will be recognized at the 2015 Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition on April 12-16, 2015, in Chicago, Ill.
