What we do
HIMSS Analytics® offers various services in the field of eHealth, which can be divided into three categories:
HIMSS Analytics® relies on a broad range of methods and on the many years of specialist experience of our employees, members and partners. In the conceptual design of models and studies we cooperate with the relevant subject matter experts and trust in an appropriate mix of technology users, policy makers and industry representatives.
For example, the EMR Adoption Model (EMRAM℠) is developed with input from senior executives and technical experts from leading hospitals, health IT vendors and other industry associations.
New models and studies are first tested in pilots, often with organisations from different countries. The data collection is carried out in numerous ways (online, by telephone, face-to-face, in workshops, via social media, among other methods) and is conducted by trained interviewers and industry experts.
Thanks to our perennial market presence we have developed personal relation-ships and hold contacts with relevant decision makers in the field of health IT in multiple countries. Data processing and analysis is carried out by trained personnel and interpretation of findings is done by industry experts from HIMSS or from specific partners.
What differentiates us?
HIMSS is an independent, neutral association that doesn’t subordinate itself to any particular body or organisation. The non-profit character of HIMSS removes us from having to meet any economic interests of corporate owners, although we think economically..
As a global-thinking, locally adaptive organisation, we bring expertise from numerous countries in any cooperative project, enabling our partners and cus-tomers to share knowledge and compare. We are also represented in numer-ous countries through offices or local representatives and thus have the necessary regional knowledge and market context. HIMSS is actively supporting similar digitisation projects in several countries including the US, Denmark, Australia and Singapore. To learn about the project success of our customers, contact your local HIMSS Analytics representative.
We are the world’s largest health IT membership organisation and the leading health IT knowledge organisation. HIMSS was established 55 years ago in the United States and has had offices in Europe for over 10 years. We have proven our expertise in numerous projects and continuously collected new experiences to expand our knowledge. In Europe alone, we have IT infrastructure information and process knowledge from more than 2,500 hospitals. Among them are more than 50 technologically advanced facilities with whom we are in a particularly intensive exchange: through personal contact on the spot, at events and congresses, in conference calls and regular communications. We know what we are talking about.
The various fields of activity in which HIMSS is active allow us to look at certain issues from different angles. Evaluations and market analyses can be dis-cussed in HIMSS media and at HIMSS events. The other ways are by initiating a workshop, a discussion or an article, a research project, a market report or a thematic analysis. We bring people and ideas together; we will promote the exchange and the network culture.
