SAN DIEGO, CA January 4, 2016 Accumen Inc. is pleased to announce its newest partnership with Detroit Medical Center (DMC) in a three-year, multi-facility engagement that will create world-class opportunities for improving patient outcomes, enhancing quality of care, and optimizing cost efficiency through comprehensive patient blood management (PBM).
DMC is the largest healthcare provider in southeast Michigan and serves more than 3,000 affiliated physicians in five hospitals in the Detroit market.

Both organizations are tirelessly pursuing better results for patients to create healthier communities.
