HIMSS Analytics has unveiled its Infrastructure Adoption Model (INFRAM), a new IT maturity model that measures a health system's technical infrastructure prior to implementing electronic medical record (EMR) software.

INFRAM identifies specific infrastructure benchmarks for organizations to reach before they go live with EMR systems, according to the organization. It focuses on five technical subdomains: mobility, security, collaboration, transport, and data center.

Similar to HIMSS Analytics' Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM), INFRAM is an eight-stage model ranging from 0 to 7. It's designed to enable healthcare IT leaders to map the technology infrastructure capabilities required to reach their facility's clinical and operational goals while adhering to industry benchmarks and standards, HIMSS Analytics said.

The final INFRAM stage -- stage 7 -- guides healthcare organizations toward optimized information integration, contextualization, and orchestration for delivering local and virtualized care processes.
