(Nasdaq: STRM), a market leading provider of document workflow solutions for hospitals, announced today that two of its clients, Texas Health Resources and a major health system in North Carolina, contracted with Streamline Health to implement new connections to their Epic software. Texas Health Resources, which began the beta phase of integration earlier this year, plans to go live in third quarter 2011 with links to HIM Deficiency Management, followed by the EpicWeb/EpicCare Link portals at a later date.
