In 2005, HIMSS Analytics developed the electronic medical record adoption model (EMRAM) to measure the degree to which hospitals have improved their electronic medical record systems and facilitated progress toward paperless workflows.

EMRAM measures the use of information technology applications according to eight stages, from 0 to 7, in which Stage 7 is the highest rating and indicates that a hospital has achieved excellence in electronic patient record keeping.
