Porter-starke services chooses SmartCare to optimize clinical service delivery and outcomes

Kalamazoo, MI – [September 26, 2017] Streamline Healthcare Solutions announces a new partnership with Porter-Starke Services of Valparaiso, IN to implement a centralized electronic health record (EHR) and billing system to improve service delivery and business processes.

“Porter-Starke Services is a comprehensive community mental health center that offers an array of inpatient, outpatient, residential, and integrated care, as well as home and community based mental health and addictions services. With this variety of services, it is critical to have software that supports clinical service delivery in an effective and efficient manner, helping us to use our resources appropriately and deliver value to our clients and payers. We need software that will help us evaluate and improve the care we provide, demonstrate the outcomes of care, and provide information that we can use to illustrate the impact of our services to funders, our community, and other stakeholders. As an organization, we participate in a variety of payment systems currently and expect healthcare payment systems to continue growing and changing. Having software that allows us to comprehensively manage our business and meet the needs of our staff, our community, and our clients is essential. All of these reasons contributed to our decision to select Streamline.” Aileen Wehren, VP of Systems Administration

Porter-Starke Services operates a comprehensive scope of services throughout Northern Indiana. Moving to an integrated EHR and billing system across its operations will offer Porter-Starke Services the opportunity for more seamless, integrated care and transparency into their operations.

“We are excited to partner with Porter-Starke Services. We believe strongly that our comprehensive web-based EHR, which supports all levels of care and the most complicated payer rules, will be a great asset to them. Our mission is to empower their users to deliver the highest quality care. And SmartCare’s ability to deliver clinical insight at the point-of-care to any staff at any time ensures we can deliver on that mission.”David Ryland, Co-Founder/Co-CEO, Streamline Healthcare Solutions.
