DIAM: A strategic roadmap to digital imaging maturity


HIMSS Analytics: Digital Imaging Adoption Model (DIAM) | Philips certified partner

Complex and continuously evolving, the environment of hospital imaging departments and imaging centers have a distinct need to deliver medical imaging securely, through the right channel, with the right context, at the right time to the right person. Numerous changes from the move to value-based care and increased use of mobile devices impact the way we use digital imaging.

The HIMSS Analytics Digital Imaging Adoption Model (DIAM) is an eight stage (0-7) model that provides guidance for imaging and IT experts to identify and adopt the right digital strategy and improve health outcomes for patients. To guide organizations along the way, HIMSS Analytics Certified organizations, like Philips, have been professionally trained on the HIMSS Analytics Maturity Model(s). These Certified organizations are able to effectively educate and guide organizations as they progress through the maturity model stages.
