CINCINNATI, Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq :STRM ), a leading provider of document workflow solutions for hospitals, today announced that a Florida-based medical institution will implement Streamline Health's Audit Compliance for the Enterprise Solution (AuditACE™) and Financial Screening Workflow Solution. The addition of these workflow solutions dramatically enhances the institution's ability to successfully address federal and state government reimbursement audits and charity care assessments. The two new workflows represent an expansion of the institution's existing suite of Streamline Health solutions. The two new workflow solutions are expected to be installed and operational in early 2011.
"Going forward we believe that audit compliance will become a highly important component in a hospital's day-to-day operations," said J. Brian Patsy, president and chief executive officer of Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. "It will have a direct impact on the ability of medical institutions to manage their cash flow by retaining federal reimbursement income that is rightfully theirs. AuditACE is designed to permit medical institutions to justify reimbursement claims to the appropriate agencies of federal and state governments, as well as private payers in a very comprehensive and timely basis. As the payers become increasingly active in auditing healthcare providers to justify reimbursement claims, we believe our solutions will prove to be extremely valuable."
Mr. Patsy continued, "We are pleased to provide these mission-critical solutions to the hospital market. Our Florida-based customer has taken an important step in proactive audit compliance and charity care assessment to increase efficiency across the spectrum of care. We are confident these integrated workflow solutions will enhance efficiencies and improve business performance, while generating a measureable return on investment."
