Solution suite to provide a common technology infrastructure for Policy, Compliance, Risk, SOX, Internal Audits and IT Governance programs for the healthcare leader

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) November 12, 2009 -- MetricStream, Inc. (“MetricStream”), the market leader in the enterprise-wide Governance, Risk and Compliance (“GRC”) solutions, today announced that Amedisys, Inc. (NASDAQ: "AMED" “Amedisys”) has selected MetricStream for an integrated enterprise-wide GRC platform and solution suite for managing its risk and compliance efforts.

Headquartered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Amedisys is one of America's leading home health and hospice nursing companies, operating 508 Medicare-certified home health agencies and 61 Medicare-certified hospice agencies in 38 states within the United States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico as of September 30, 2009.

Increasing regulatory mandates and oversight in the healthcare industry is compelling companies to streamline and synergize processes related to policy and procedure management, compliance management, risk management, internal audits, quality of services and operations, incident tracking, corrective action plans and regulatory reporting. By adopting MetricStream as the technology infrastructure, Amedisys will be able to continue to automate the reporting of its risk and compliance information.

“We are pleased to have Amedisys as a customer and look forward to working with them towards their goal of bringing additional automation to their risk and compliance efforts,” said Gaurav Kapoor, CFO and General Management at MetricStream. “The selection by Amedisys of MetricStream illustrates our continued leadership in GRC and the compelling value we deliver for healthcare companies.”
