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.
