Digital Imaging Adoption

Jointly developed by HIMSS Analytics® and the European Society of Radiology (ESR), the Digital Imaging Adoption Model (DIAM) helps to evaluate the maturity of IT-supported processes in medical imaging in both hospitals and diagnostic centres.

This eight-stage maturity model drives your organisational, strategic and tactical alignment towards imaging-IT maturity. With its standardised approach, it enables regional, national and international benchmarking.

Participants will receive a gap analysis with detailed action items for future investment decisions. In addition, DIAM provides an authoritative basis for presentation to the management level.

Digital Imaging Adoption Model (DIAM)


"There are two important aspects about the DIAM assessment that radiology departments need to keep in mind. First, the detailed GAP analysis shows potential deficits in the implemented IT-infrastructure, such as security aspects within patient identification. Second, bearing the model in mind, it is helpful to plan further IT projects on a strategical level, focusing on precision medicine or patient involvement, for instance. There is guidance on relevant topics for this kind of development, which might also be very helpful in negotiations with administration."
