Oak Brook, IL – After a comprehensive evaluation process, North Central Behavioral Health Systems (“NCBHS”), based in LaSalle, Illinois, has selected Streamline’s SmartCare™ as its next Electronic Health Record (EHR) solution. NCBHS values a fully web-based, automated solution that can meet the needs of its mental health and substance use services across seven counties in Illinois.
