ATLANTA, March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: STRM), a leading provider of transformational data-driven solutions that help healthcare providers reduce exposure to risk, enhance clinical, financial and operational performance and improve patient care, today announced Norman Regional Health System, a client of Streamline Health for the last five years, has renewed its contract for Streamline Health's suite of business analytics solutions as well as its Solution Optimization Services.
The 324-bed, Norman, Oklahoma healthcare organization will continue to use Streamline Health's data analysis and reporting system and accounts receivable and denials management solutions for the next three years. The organization says the solutions package gives it a complete global view of its financial performance.
In addition to the technology, Norman Regional was the first user of Streamline Health's Solution Optimization Services (SOS), which became available to all Streamline clients last year. SOS gives healthcare providers access to subject matter experts for help with both tactical issues and long-term strategic planning. Services include revenue optimization, business process improvement, data-based employee performance incentives, and data monitoring.
Meegan Carter, Vice President of Revenue Cycle at Norman Regional, said she's found SOS extremely beneficial. "For healthcare organizations like ours that don't have a deep well of analysts and need better insights into cash flow, SOS is invaluable," said Carter. "The combination of sophisticated technology with Streamline Health's subject matter experts has helped us to develop additional metrics to manage the AR and cash flow of our organization."
Carter and her team considered other vendors before making the decision to renew. Ultimately, they renewed with Streamline Health because its solutions easily incorporate both clinical and financial data.
Robert E. Watson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Streamline Health, said he is gratified by Norman Regional's renewal and excited to see the benefits SOS will bring to other Streamline customers in 2014. "We are committed to providing advanced solutions and optimized services to healthcare organizations around the country to help them face the numerous challenges of today's changing healthcare environment," he said.
