Novant Health is the first organization to be revalidated with Stage 7 Ambulatory Award

HIMSS Analytics revalidated 441 Novant Health clinics, located throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia with Stage 7 Ambulatory Awards.

Developed in 2011, the EMR Ambulatory Adoption Model (EMRAM) provides a methodology for evaluating the progress and impact of electronic medical record systems for ambulatory facilities owned by hospitals in the HIMSS Analytics Logic.
