Streamline Health CEO steps down


Streamline Health Solutions, a provider of transformational data-driven solutions to help healthcare providers, has reshuffled its leadership.

The chief executive officer (CEO), Robert Watson, is leaving the company to become president of NantHealth. He will remain on Streamline’s board of directors.

David Sides, executive vice president and chief operating officer (COO), has been appointed as president and CEO.

Sides, a former Cerner executive, was hired as EVP and COO in September 2014 to oversee operations solutions development and client services. He had previously served as CEO of iMDSoft a provider of clinical information systems and electronic medical records for critical perioperative and acute care organizations

"I'm more excited today about our prospects for the future than I was when I joined the company back in September,” said Sides. "Of the many opportunities I was offered last summer I found Streamline to be the most compelling. The company is just now beginning the third year of its five-year strategic plan and from my perspective it's all about execution. The primary assets have been assembled and the Looking Glass platform implemented. As president and CEO I will continue to focus my energies on executing against our plan going forward."

Jon Phillips, chairman of the board of Streamline, added: "We are pleased to have David Sides on board as president and CEO. David and Bob have a long and successful history of working together and will continue to do so with Bob remaining on our board of directors and in his new role as president of NantHealth."
