FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SAN DIEGO, CA, November 14, 2017 – Accumen Inc. is pleased to announce the addition of Tom Fountain to its team as Chief Technology & Strategy Officer. Mr. Fountain’s, hands-on experience makes him an ideal choice to partner with hospitals and health systems committed to transforming the clinical laboratory with change that is sustainable and delivers higher quality in patient care.
Mr. Fountain will work side-by-side with clients to align Accumen’s Technology™ solutions including Accumen Performance Suite™ (APS™), an innovative, cloud-based technology that is purpose-built for hospital and health system laboratories to provide real-time, actionable insights to deliver better quality of care with greater speed and efficiency.
