HIMSS: Compuware, DMC to discuss Stage 6 EMR achievement
The Detroit Medical Center (DMC) and technology company Compuware will discuss the challenges the organization faced in getting to Stage 6 EMR adoption at the HIMSS 2010 Conference in Atlanta on March 3 at 1:00 pm.

The session will feature Mike LeRoy, DMC’s senior vice president and CIO, who will highlight DMC’s IT journey to achieving Stage 6 of HIMSS Analytics’ EMR Adoption Model, Compuware said. In addition, DMC will detail how end-to-end application performance management using Compuware’s EHR Service Delivery played a role in this accomplishment by improving clinician adoption and productivity, the Detroit-based company stated.

According to HIMSS Analytics, DMC is the largest U.S. healthcare system to reach Stage 6 of the EMR Adoption Model. In order for a hospital to be at Stage 6, full physician documentation must be implemented for at least one patient care service area and a full complement of radiology PACS systems must be implemented, providing full digital medical imaging to physicians, Compuware stated.

Compuware will showcase EHR Service Delivery at HIMSS10, March 1-4 in Atlanta at booth #4608.
