Accumen Partners with Deaconess Health System to Improve Patient Outcomes

Deaconess Health System Implements New Program to Continue Commitment to Quality

SAN DIEGO, CA February 06, 2017 Accumen Inc. is pleased to announce a new partnership with Deaconess Health System in a multi-year agreement to implement a Comprehensive Patient Blood Management (cPBM) program. The partnership will strive to enhance the quality of care and improve patient safety and outcomes.

Deaconess Health System is a premier provider of healthcare services in more than 40 locations including six hospitals, as well as more than 20 primary care locations and multiple specialty facilities. The organization was established in 1892 and has been led by the mission to advance the health and well-being of the community with a compassionate and caring spirit.

Although healthcare has changed tremendously over the health system’s 125-year history, Deaconess has always upheld the principles of compassionate care, quality caregivers, and a commitment to service and medical science. Deaconess has continually been able to grow and improve the quality of life for its patients.

In partnership with Accumen, Deaconess will apply a patient-centered approach to drive less blood utilization, reduce overall blood spend, and align physicians, the health system, and blood providers on expectations and objectives. This partnership will allow for the creation of better patient outcomes and fulfill the missions of both organizations.

“Accumen is eager to begin making a positive impact and driving improved patient outcomes through our partnership with Deaconess. We are proud to have the opportunity to collaborate with another health system that is committed to providing the highest level of patient safety, quality of care, and cost saving initiatives,” said John Thomas, Vice President and General Manager at Accumen.
