St. Vincent's Medical Center Extends Licensing Agreement With Streamline Health and Migrates to SaaS Model
CINCINNATI, Aug. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: STRM), a market leading provider of document workflow solutions for hospitals, announced today that St. Vincent's Medical Center has extended its agreement to utilize Streamline Health products and services through an agreement with Streamline Health's strategic partner, GE Healthcare. Under the terms of the seven-year agreement, the healthcare system will be converting from a licensing model to Streamline Health's software as a service (SaaS) model, and will upgrade to a new accessANYware version with additional HIM workflows.
St. Vincent's Medical Center is a 473-bed community teaching and referral hospital with a Level II trauma center. St. Vincent's provides a full range of inpatient and outpatient services with regional centers of excellence in cardiology, surgery, cancer care, orthopedics, diagnostics, women's and family services, behavioral health, senior health, and an array of specialized services.
By migrating to accessANYware v1.9, the medical center will move closer to their goal of ICD-10 compliance. accessANYware v1.9 provides key benefits in the final elimination of legacy hardware and provides multi-entity benefits allowing a medical center to manage facilities separately with unique governance. The upgrade will also provide the medical center with GE Inbox integration – allowing physicians to complete their charts from one location.
As part of the new agreement, the medical center will also deploy several additional Streamline Health products: Chart Completion Workflow, Coding Workflow, and Release of Information Workflow. The suite of workflows will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the HIM department by automating the routing of documents and allowing remote employees access to documents online.
