Boston Software Systems and Customers to Demonstrate Effective Workflow Automation at Muse International

Presentations Will Illustrate Cost-Effective and Time-Saving Solutions for Managing Critical Processes in Healthcare Organizations

SHERBORN, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 16, 2005 -- Boston Software Systems, the leader in workflow automation technology to the healthcare market, today announced Product Manager Thom Blackwell will host three workshops focusing on ways healthcare providers can streamline, optimize and manage workflow at the 2005 MUSE International Conference at the Las Vegas Hilton, May 31 - June 2, 2005.

Thom Blackwell will demonstrate how Boston Software Systems' workflow automation and integration tool, Boston WorkStation, is enabling hospitals to increase patient safety, save time and cut costs by automating processes and monitoring employees. By streamlining mundane tasks, such as registration and the re-keying of information, healthcare organizations are not only able not to save FTEs, but ensure the right information is properly delivered.
