CINCINNATI, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: STRM), a leading provider of document workflow solutions for hospitals, today announced the General Availability of its new accessANYware 5.0 Enterprise Document Workflow Software Suite. Version 5.0 represents the ground up re-architecture and modernization of the Company's flagship document workflow solutions.

Streamline Health's initial customer implementation of Version 5.0 went live in a production environment earlier this month at a major international medical institution, supporting an enterprise master patient index of over 4 million patients across multiple facilities. The Company's enterprise document workflow software suite supports health professionals and health systems as they shift progressively from a paper intensive environment towards electronic health records.

The accessANYware 5.0 solution is Streamline Health's fifth generation document workflow platform, continuing a history of innovation since the Company's inception in 1989. Built as a service-oriented architecture upon the industry-leading Microsoft .NET® framework, this major release incorporates many enhancements and benefits to current and new customers, particularly in the areas of ease of use, configurability, supportability, reliability and scalability.

Highlights include:

  • State-of-the-art service-oriented architecture;
  • Unparalleled integration capabilities with the leading clinical, financial, and administrative systems;
  • A built-in workflow designer allowing customer modifications without code changes;
  • An enhanced, flexible, role-based security framework to manage compliance;
  • A personalized user Interface to precisely provide the needed information;
  • Multi-language support, including initially French and English.

"Streamline Health has been a pioneer in the development of healthcare document workflow for the last 20 years," said J. Brian Patsy, president and CEO of Streamline Health. "But by listening and incorporating the forward-thinking ideas of our customers, many of whom represent the largest and most advanced healthcare document management installations in North America, we are able to substantially raise the bar with this re-architecture of our flagship product. We are confident we have delivered a new platform that will allow our customers to achieve comprehensive integrated document workflow solutions that will measurably enhance operating efficiencies across their entire organizations in the most cost-effective manner possible. This is an important component in effectively 'bending the cost curve' down in healthcare going forward. We are dedicated to becoming a meaningful competitor in this critical business segment."
