Opportunity for Improvement
Accumen’s engagement within the regional lab structure was already in a good position but leadership acknowledged that even better results could be achieved because of our partnership.
With many labs under different leaders without common datasets there was a system-wide level of “unknown:unknown”. What was working? What wasn’t? What could be measured and how to do that with consistency and rigor? Those were just a few of the questions that the team came to the table looking to solve.
“As a leader in the healthcare space we had taken on the initial hurdle of eliminating the unnecessary transfusions on our own and saw progress.”
Our Work’s Impact
Accumen is the Plan
Over the term of this engagement, Accumen took a results-driven approach which lead to being a trusted member of the team. The cost savings spoke for themselves in many ways and when it came time to plan for the next step in optimization, Accumen was seen as a partner.
The cost savings achieved in the lab has moved them into the most competitive position regionally and created even more opportunities to scale and grow. As that growth continues, Accumen looks to continue to support the lab as they drive productivity forward and cost per test down.
