ATLANTA, March 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: STRM), provider of the Looking Glass® platform of integrated solutions, technology-enabled services and analytics supporting revenue cycle optimization for healthcare enterprises, today announced an agreement to provide new services and technology to long-time client Nebraska Medicine. Nebraska Medicine provides its patients with access to more than 1,000 physicians with a total of 661 licensed beds at its hospitals in Omaha and Bellevue, along with nearly 40 specialty and primary care clinics in Omaha and the surrounding area. Nebraska Medicine is the clinical partner for the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC).
The client agreed to leverage Coding Audit services from Streamline Health to assess the accuracy and completeness of its Inpatient, Outpatient, Pro-Fee and HCC coding efforts. Streamline Health's experienced Auditing staff will use the Company's Looking Glass® CORE (Coding Opportunity Report Engine) solution to help them randomly audit approximately 1500 records of Inpatient, Outpatient, Pro-Fee and HCC accounts over the next several weeks. Streamline Health's CORE technology will empower Nebraska Medicine coders with detailed reporting of all audit results, which the client will use to continue coder education and to enhance their overall accuracy and quality.
"We chose Streamline Health's Coding Audit Services to help us complete a random sample audit to evaluate the overall quality of full-time coding staff because we know the company well and have been using one of their Looking Glass solutions for the past 10 years," stated Judith Botts, Director of HIM, Nebraska Medicine. "Their Looking Glass CORE technology will enable us to provide customized education to our coders once the random audit is completed. This kind of hands-on learning will help us to improve the quality and accuracy of our coding staff going forward."
"We are pleased to expand our partnership with Nebraska Medicine to include Auditing Services," stated David Sides, President and Chief Executive Officer, Streamline Health. "They are a long-time client, and this sale of our Auditing Services into an existing client is exactly what we envisioned when we acquired Opportune IT last fall. Our investment in developing the Looking Glass CORE technology was a key factor in convincing Nebraska Medicine to choose us over the competition including their incumbent provider."
