ATLANTA, Aug. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: STRM) and South Shore Hospital today announced the sale of Streamline's new cloud-based automated pre-bill code auditing technology, Streamline Health® eValuator™ to Chicago-based South Shore Hospital. In addition, the new contract also includes pre- and post-bill DRG auditing services.
With eValuator, Streamline Health is leading an industry movement to improve healthcare providers' financial performance by moving mid-to-late revenue cycle interventions upstream, optimizing coding accuracy for every patient encounter prior to bill submission. By improving coding accuracy before billing, providers can reduce revenue leakage, mitigate overbill risk, and reduce denials and days in A/R. This enables providers to turn unpredictable revenue cycles into dynamic revenue streams.
"When Streamline Health approached us with this idea to analyze all our patient records after coding but before billing, we were intrigued, to say the least," stated Donald McGruder, Chief Information and Revenue Integrity Officer, South Shore Hospital. "Whether doing coding in-house or outsourcing, we felt we needed to adopt Streamline Health's workflow for the assurance it would provide. The idea of using eValuator to screen every coded record for potential errors in real-time before billing made perfect sense. We are pleased to be a 'Charter' member client for eValuator. I don't think it will be long before every hospital will look to improve their coding accuracy by checking their work before billing instead of long afterwards."
"We are targeting a handful of early adopters of new technology to join our 'Charter' member program to get our new eValuator technology off the ground and Donald McGruder and South Shore Hospital represents the kind of forward-thinking organization that sees the benefits of reviewing all coded patient records before they are billed," stated David Sides, President and Chief Executive Officer, Streamline Health. "We really appreciate South Shore stepping up to be one of our 'Charter' members and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with this new client."
