The 2019 edition of e-Health Week is the ninth event hosted by HIMSS in Dubai and was held under the patronage of the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP), the Department of Health, the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and the Emirates Health Informatics Society and supported by the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA).

The EMRAM – developed by HIMSS Analytics in 2005 – has eight stages (0 – 7) that measure a hospital’s implementation and utilization of information technology applications. Reaching Stage 6 is a result of focus, good direction, a steadfast commitment from leadership and ranks these facilities as some of the most digitally mature hospitals worldwide on the global EMRAM and O-EMRAM scales.
