DIAM - Digital Imaging Adoption Model
DIAM - Digital Imaging Adoption Model is a
project for supporting imaging departments in planning and
implementing their IT strategies which has been jointly
developed by Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society
(HIMSS) Analytics in Europe and the European Society of Radiology
(ESR) and launched at ECR 2016.
The model is the first of its kind worldwide and comprises ten
focus areas essential to the digitisation in imaging IT. These
areas include patient engagement, personalised medicine and
clinical documentation, amongst others.
Similar to the HIMSS Analytics EMR and Continuity of Care
Adoption Models, DIAM has 8 stages, with Stage 0 indicating low
maturity and Stage 7 representing advanced maturity. One
significant difference is that the highest three stages in DIAM
reflect specialised branches that can be achieved separately.
A dedicated DIAM Coffee and Talk Session was
organised at ECR 2018, which attracted many attendees from various
countries and fields.
