Hartford HealthCare Signs Agreement With Streamline Health® For AccessAnyWare™ Enterprise Content Management Solutions SaaS Delivery Model Will Help the Organization Control Costs
ATLANTA, May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: STRM), a leading provider of SaaS-based enterprise content management, business analytics, computer assisted coding (CAC), and clinical documentation improvement (CDI) solutions for healthcare providers, today announced that Hartford HealthCare Corporation signed an agreement to replace their existing content management solution with AccessAnyWare™ within the health system.
Connecticut-based Hartford HealthCare's network includes three community hospitals and a tertiary care teaching hospital with more than 1,100 licensed beds. The system was recently named by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) as one of the 106 new Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). The healthcare network will be using AccessAnyWare with HIM workflows, CompletionWare™ and ReleaseWare™, all integrated with the EHR, in order to achieve greater efficiencies within the health information management (HIM) department. Additionally, Streamline Health's solutions, will allow Hartford's clinicians to quickly access critical patient data and complete deficiencies from a single user interface within the EHR.
By integrating the organization's paper documents, record management, and online chart completion within their EHR system, Hartford will achieve a true enterprise workflow, which will increase patient safety, improve quality of care, and reduce operating expenses. Additionally with the SaaS delivery model offered by Streamline Health, Hartford will eliminate costs for service, support, maintenance and hardware that are associated with locally installed applications.
"The reality for most healthcare organizations is that manual paper-based processes still exist, and in order to effectively communicate and improve efficiencies throughout the enterprise, the documents must be digitized and accessible from within the EHR. AccessAnyWare will help us accomplish this, " stated Luis Taveras, Senior VP and Chief Information Officer, Hartford HealthCare. "The additional cost savings that we will achieve with the SaaS delivery model will be an added benefit to the entire organization."
"We are excited to have Hartford HealthCare as a new AccessAnyWare client using our proven suite of health information management solutions," said Robert E. Watson, President and Chief Executive Officer, Streamline Health. "Once integrated with their EHR, our solutions will help facilitate communication between the disparate departments and information systems within their organization to improve coordination of care, a key performance measure for an ACO."
