Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital achieves HIMSS Stage 6 recognition

Innovative use of MEDITECH Expanse EHR and data optimization enhances patient outcomes at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital.


Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital (Holland Bloorview) was recently awarded two prestigious Level 6 validations from the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), recognizing its use of digital technology to enhance the outcomes of the families it serves. 

Holland Bloorview was recognized with Level 6 validations in the HIMSS Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM) and the HIMSS Adoption Model for Analytics Maturity (AMAM). EMRAM measures clinical outcomes, patient engagement, and clinician use of EHR technology. AMAM measures a healthcare organization's analytics capabilities.

The collective efforts, talent, skills, and perspectives of the team have led to this achievement.”

Providing both inpatient and outpatient services, Holland Bloorview focuses on combining world-class care, transformational research, and academic leadership in the field of child and youth rehabilitation and disability. 

“Congratulations to Holland Bloorview on this impressive achievement,” said MEDITECH Sales Director Nick Palmieri. “This industry recognition is a testament to their digital sophistication and continued efforts to leverage Expanse in new ways for enhanced outcomes.”
