FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SAN DIEGO, March 20, 2017 – Accumen Inc. has announced its newest lab excellence strategic partnership with Kingman Regional Medical Center (KRMC). The engagement will create opportunities to deliver better patient outcomes, enhance the quality of care, and optimize cost efficiency through implementation of Accumen’s Comprehensive Patient Blood Management program (cPBM), integrated lab supply chain, and test menu optimization initiatives.
KRMC is the largest healthcare provider in northwest Arizona and remains as the only not-for-profit hospital in Mohave County. As a 235-bed multi-campus healthcare system, over 1,800 team members, including 280 physicians and allied health professionals provide care along with more than 250 volunteers. KRMC is committed to offering a full range of medical services that help to meet health and wellness needs of a growing community.

KRMC is part of the Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association (AzHHA), a statewide collaborative of organizations and leaders devoted to building better healthcare for the patients, people, and communities of Arizona. Accumen and AzHHA are committed to creating value in healthcare, which ultimately leads to healthier communities. This partnership will focus on improvements in the lab, more specifically introducing a patient-focused cPBM program and improving integrated lab supply chain for cost containment.
