Rapid Growth Allows Accumen to Impact Hospital and Health System Clinical Laboratories and Patient Care

August 9, 2016

SAN DIEGO, August 9, 2016 – Accumen, Inc. is gaining momentum with hospital and health system clinical laboratories by accelerating client aspirations to achieve laboratory excellence through improved quality, cost, and enhanced patient care and outcomes. As an innovative, results-driven company, Accumen has grown in number of clients, continued to develop advanced technology and services solutions, and is attracting great talent to support all things lab. Recently, Accumen refreshed its brand identity and logo, and launched a new website that brings visuals and content inline to reflect the mission, vision, and value of offering end-to-end laboratory solutions.

Accumen as a healthcare transformation company is positioned for growth well beyond its current achievements of assisting clients with management of more than $700 million in annual lab spend and initiating efforts to reduce the number of patients exposed to transfusions by 21,000 and reduce blood acquisition costs by 36% in just 12 months.

In just the past few months, Accumen acquired Chi Solutions, forming a combined partnership that has served nearly 500 clients with hundreds of active benchmarked hospital laboratories across the US; announced partnerships with health systems across the country including Parkview Health System and Mercy Health System, while strategically aligning with leading industry organizations like the Society for the Advancement of Blood Management (SABM), which researches the positive impact of innovative Patient Blood Management Programs and educates professionals and the public, and Planetree, a global leader in advancing patient-centered care. Accumen has also been increasing capacity by acquiring talent that includes the brightest and the best laboratory professionals in the country.

“The opportunity is great to impact outcomes, revenue, and care with more than seven billion laboratory tests performed in the U.S. each year. We recognize that a high performing lab is a critical, strategic component of the hospital’s value-based care model. It is an exciting time to lead a team that combines the best talent, processes, and technology to create unprecedented value for the healthcare industry,” says Jeff Osborne, CEO.

Using a trusted partnership approach, Accumen and Chi provide health systems with flexible offerings to accelerate lab value at a point of need and untapped opportunity in the areas of consulting, execution, utilization, and outreach. From complete lab excellence transformation, to extensive benchmarking, enterprise blood utilization patient safety programs, revenue growth through outreach, and targeted consulting expertise across the lab, the offerings span all things lab.
