Award Presentation Recognizes the Use of Advanced Technology to Improve Patient Care

BANGKOK, Thailand, August 13, 2018 – InterSystems, a global leader in health information technology, today announced that HIMSS Analytics® has awarded Bangkok Hospital Hua Hin EMRAMSM Stage 6, an international benchmark for the use of advanced technology to improve patient care.
 
Bangkok Hospital Hua Hin is part of The Bangkok Dusit Medical Services (BDMS) Group, the largest private hospital provider in Thailand with 26 hospital branches across the country. The hospital relies on the InterSystems TrakCare® electronic medical record (EMR) system to help it meet the highest standards for care and operational efficiency.
 
HIMSS Analytics developed the EMR Adoption Model (EMRAM) in 2005 as a methodology for evaluating the progress and impact of electronic medical record systems for hospitals. Located in the resort town of Hua Hin, Bangkok Hospital Hua Hin is only the third hospital in Thailand to achieve EMRAM Stage 6.
 
According to HIMSS Analytics, reaching Stage 6 is a result of focus, good direction, and a steadfast commitment from leadership. Stage 6 institutions have established clear goals for improving safety, minimizing errors, and prioritizing information technology (IT) implementations.
 
“The staff at Bangkok Hospital Hua Hin did a great job demonstrating how they are quickly moving towards a paperless EMR environment. They are beginning to effectively use technology to drive improvements in care processes for their patients,” said John Daniels, Global Vice President, Healthcare Advisory Services Group for HIMSS Analytics.
 
“The journey to better healthcare by adopting EMRAM is very important for Bangkok Hospital Group to improve outcomes for patient care and better services for patients’ overall satisfaction,” said Poramaporn Prasarttong-Osoth, M.D., CEO for Bangkok Hospital Hua Hin.
 
Weerasak Pongpattanapan, M.D., Hospital Director for Bangkok Hospital Hua Hin added, “Achieving EMRAM Stage 6 is a major landmark in the transformation of Bangkok Hospital Hua Hin. It enhances accurate communication and generates structured data to guide future medical practice.”
