Accumen Partners with SSM Health – Saint Louis University Hospital to Optimize Comprehensive Patient Blood Management Program

SSM Saint Louis University Hospital implements new program to optimize patient outcomes, drive better blood utilization and reduce healthcare costs

Accumen Inc. is pleased to announce a new partnership with SSM Health – Saint Louis University Hospital (SLUH) in a multi-year agreement to implement a Comprehensive Patient Blood Management program (cPBM). The partnership will continue to enhance the quality of care and improve patient outcomes.

SSM Health SLUH is an academic hospital that has been serving the St. Louis community for more than 80 years. The hospital is a part of SSM Health, a Catholic, not-for-profit health system that services the comprehensive health needs of communities across the Midwest. Since 2015, SSM has partnered with Saint Louis University Hospital, bringing together two top St. Louis institutions that provide quality care. The hospital values the sacredness and dignity of each person and values compassion, respect, excellence, stewardship, and community.

Forming a partnership with Accumen unites two organizations that value high-quality patient care. Accumen will assist with implementation of this national patient safety initiative. At the heart of Accumen’s cPBM vision, is a patient-centered model that optimizes evidence based transfusion practice, improves recognition and management of anemia, and implements strategies to minimize bleeding and blood loss.

“Accumen is proud to partner with SSM Health to implement a Comprehensive Patient Blood Management program (cPBM) that results in improved stewardship of a precious, scarce, and expensive resource, while ultimately improving the quality of care,” said Joseph Thomas BSN, RN, National Director of Patient Blood Management at Accumen.
