During his speech, HIMSS President H. Stephen Lieber said, “In terms of the information technologies usage in healthcare services, Turkey proceeds to the European leadership. We continue showing Turkey as example all around the world. Turkey comes just after Spain and the Netherlands in the 6th and 7th digital hospital area in Europe. This situation and the high number of hospitals awarded with 6th level have placed Turkey in the same category with the leading countries of Europe in terms of EMRAM. I am proud of being here today and of celebrating this great success with those who directed the country to this strong leadership position”.
