HIMSS recently launched the Community Care Outcomes Maturity Model (C-COMM) which moves beyond traditional outpatient clinics and is designed to address a more comprehensive array of non-acute care settings in the community, measuring foundational elements of digital maturity to improve care delivery and outcomes.

The majority of the world’s citizens seek health services within their communities. With the C-COMM, you’ll optimise the continuation of care for care recipients and populations outside the walls of the acute care setting and ensure all care documentation is available online to the clinical team when and where they need it.

If you are interested in the C-COMM maturity model, or the HIMSS Analytics wider capabilities, make contact at MedInfo 2023 with Andrew Pearce ([email protected]), Vice President Analytics & Global Advisory Lead, HIMSS.

New Non-Acute Care Roadmap: HIMSS Digital Maturity Model Strategy C-COMM will measure digital maturity of care delivery across all community based environments, such as primary care, virtual care and telehealth, maternal and child wellness, and mental health. C-COMM also provides a strategic roadmap to build a person centric health ecosystem, for digitally connected, safer care for our entire life span. C-COMM is a modernized rendition of the Outpatient Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model, which measured digital maturity of outpatient clinics.

The majority of the world’s population seek their health services outside the traditional hospital setting. C-COMM is an important addition to the HIMSS Analytics suite of digital transformation maturity models, and a critical success factor for health systems to provide consumer friendly, convenient, digitally connected access to healthcare services, with improved patient engagement and experience, at home or in our communities.

C-COMM also significantly improves health equity for vulnerable populations and supports the HIMSS vision of every human, everywhere, realising their full health potential,” said HIMSS President & CEO Hal Wolf.
“C-COMM leverages data and digital transformation of community care to improve health outcomes for all non-acute care delivery environments via the digitally connected health ecosystem, focusing on wellness, illness prevention, and the use of technology to help manage chronic disease at home, keeping patients out of hospital.

“As healthcare systems experience increasingly stretched workforce and financial resources, a C-COMM informed digital care strategy improves provider efficiency, productivity and access to valuable information when making treatment decisions with the patient and family”.

C-COMM advances the HIMSS mission to realize to reform the global health ecosystem through the power of information and technology. It joins the HIMSS suite of Analytics Maturity Models, which provide strategic frameworks for healthcare organizations to build their digital health connectivity, capability and capacity.
