August 16, 2012

GREENWICH, CT and CINCINNATI, OH – August 16, 2012 – Streamline Health Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ: STRM), a leading provider of enterprise content management and business analytics solutions for health care organizations, completed a $12 million growth equity investment led by Great Point Partners (“GPP”) of Greenwich, CT. As part of this investment, the company issued convertible preferred stock that can be converted into common stock on a one for one basis at $3 per share, and warrants to purchase common stock. In addition, the company issued convertible notes, which, upon shareholder approval, will convert into the same series of convertible preferred stock.

“We chose Great Point Partners for their expertise and deep network in the health care information technology (HCIT) space. GPP’s expertise will be of great assistance with our growth plans going forward,” said Robert E. Watson, President and CEO of Streamline Health.

Rohan Saikia of Great Point Partners said, “As a growing, highly scalable and well-positioned, leading provider of health care information technology solutions, Streamline Health exemplifies the very type of company that Great Point Partners seeks for investment. We’re pleased to partner with Streamline Health and support their growth into new and adjacent markets.”

This transaction closed only two weeks after GPP closed another HCIT investment in Connecture, an online health insurance process automation software solution. “We have been active in both the provider-focused and managed care information technology sectors. You will see us play an active role here in the years to come,” added Brett Carlson from Great Point.

Streamline Health Solutions also announced the acquisition of New York City-based Meta Health Technology, Inc. (“Meta”) a leading provider of health information management solutions for hospitals, clinics, physician group practices and long-term care facilities across the U.S. and Canada. Meta has a pending release of a computer-assisted coding (“CAC”) solution which, combined with Streamline Health’s current offerings, will place Streamline Health at the core of addressing the complexities of the ICD-10 transition.
