Ascension Health Hospital Awards Streamline Health Contract to Ensure OSHA Compliance
Date:12/10/2009

CINCINNATI, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: STRM) a leading provider of document workflow solutions for hospitals, today announced that St. Vincent's Medical Center in Bridgeport, Connecticut, has selected Streamline Health to provide a workflow solution to ensure compliance with OSHA Voluntary Protection Programs. The Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) promotes effective worksite-based safety and health. St. Vincent's Medical Center is a 473-bed teaching and referral hospital and is a member of Ascension Health, the nation's largest Catholic and nonprofit health system in the United States comprised of 38 hospitals covering 500 locations in 19 states and the District of Columbia.

"In selecting Streamline's Contractor Management Workflow, we will now be able to optimize what had been a very manual, labor-intensive compliance process," said Berwyn Kelley, MBA, Director Materials Management, St. Vincent's Medical Center. "In addition, we will now have complete transparency with automated workflow triggers to alert us when a contract has expired or if a contractor is out of compliance. Streamline was the only vendor that provided a complete process optimization solution addressing our compliance needs for both our vendors and our contractors, plus we wanted a proven ASP delivery model with subscription-based pricing. Ease of use and rapid speed to value are equally important and were key determinants as well."

Streamline's innovative Contractor Management Solution uses a highly configurable rules-based workflow engine, combined with industry leading document management and workflow capabilities. The configurable solution is designed to fit the customer's unique compliance process needs, as opposed to forcing the customer to fit a hard-coded solution. The result is smart technology that delivers rapid and successful adoption as well as a quick return on investment.

"We are pleased to have this opportunity to work with St. Vincent's Medical Center on this important compliance initiative that we believe will become a best practice throughout Ascension Health," said J. Brian Patsy, President and CEO of Streamline Health.
