Three Saudi Arabian hospitals achieve EMRAM Stage 7

Three Saudi Arabian hospitals in the Mouwasat group have achieved the highest level of the HIMSS Analytics Electronic Medical Records Adoption Model (EMRAM).

The hospitals in Qatif, Damman and Riyadh were validated at Stage 7 of the eight-stage model EMRAM model, which scores hospitals from 0-7 relative to their inpatient electronic medical records (EMR) capabilities.

During the assessment it was noted that protected PCs in every ward are refreshed every five minutes to ensure patient summary reports, allergy notifications, problem and medication lists are available. A comprehensive set of dashboards and visual displays are available in most areas of the hospital including the pharmacy.

The hospitals have also created clinical decision support routines, which present clinicians with potential diagnoses generated by an algorithm that considers lab results, medication, and vital signs. 


Mouwasat has demonstrated its ongoing commitment to improving patient safety and quality of clinical care through the effective use of EMR technology.


Mouwasat Hospital Al Khobar achieved EMRAM Stage 7 in September 2020.  The two remaining hospitals in the Mouwasat group are validated at Stage 6 and working towards Stage 7.
