Streamline Healthcare Solutions (Streamline) and Alameda County Health Care Services Agency (HCSA) have finalized a partnership to provide the next billing and managed care software solution for HCSA’s Behavioral Health Care Department (ACBH). The Streamline SmartCare software solution will integrate billing, managed care, and various other data processes into a single system. ACBH values a vendor that provides a full array of functional areas within a single application/database resulting in increased efficiencies and ease of use.
Karyn L. Tribble, PsyD, LCSW, Director at Alameda County Behavioral Health Care Services commented, “We look forward to a strong partnership that supports our Agency goals to provide resilient services to our communities. This is a major system update with a software solution that will allow us to better coordinate with our providers and improve quality of services for our community-based organizations (CBOs) and Fee-For-Service (FFS) providers.”
“We are very excited to partner with Alameda County and enter the California County market. Streamline got its start working with Prepaid Inpatient Health Plan (PHIP) entities in Michigan, and we are very familiar with the unique needs of those acting as direct providers while also managing an external network of providers. We feel our unified web-based solution is an ideal fit for California Counties looking for current technology that will meet their needs well into the future.” Javed Husain, Co-CEO, Streamline Healthcare Solutions.
