Founded From the Heart
When his daughter was hospitalized at birth, Randall Lipps observed much inefficiency in the way hospital supplies were managed, and he saw that it prevented nursing staff from spending more time directly caring for patients. He founded Omnicell, Inc. in 1992 on the premise that better management of supplies and medications would improve a hospital’s standard of care by allowing clinicians to spend more time with their patients.
Mr. Lipps has served as Omnicell’s Chairman since the company’s founding, and in 2002 he assumed the additional position of President and Chief Executive Officer, taking a more active leadership role in the company’s operations.
Omnicell, Inc. Today
Omnicell is recognized as a leading provider of comprehensive, technologically advanced automation that enables healthcare facilities to acquire, manage, dispense, and deliver medications and supplies more effectively. By focusing on improving the distribution process, we have helped more than 2,700 hospitals reduce medication errors, improve efficiency, and decrease costs.
Omnicell’s automated hardware/software systems for medication dispensing include solutions from the point of entry into the hospital through the central pharmacy, nursing unit, operating room, and patient bedside – as well as in long-term care sites. Our supply management systems promote greater cost control and charge capture for payer reimbursement, and improve management and reordering of inventory. Omnicell products range from high-security, closed-cabinet systems and software to open-shelf and combination systems in the nursing unit, cath lab, and operating room.
