Letter to Our Customers About the Aesynt Acquisition
I am excited to let you know that the completion of the Aesynt acquisition was announced January 6, 2016. As a result, Omnicell is now uniquely positioned to offer customers an unprecedented choice of medication management technology, including central pharmacy, point-of-care, IV compounding, medication adherence solutions, and a growing capability in analytics.
We believe customers will experience significant benefits from the combination of our two teams. For example, integrating our product development groups is expected to lead to some exciting breakthroughs and the opportunity to accelerate innovation in our industry.
At present, there will be no changes to your current contacts in the field organization such as sales representatives, service technicians, or technical support representatives. Our highest priority is customer satisfaction, and we do not intend to make any changes that would adversely affect customers.
I am excited about the strong potential of the combined entity, and I hope you share our enthusiasm as we continue our commitment to improve health care for everyone. Our press release provides additional details on the acquisition.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Randall A. Lipps
Chairman, President, CEO and Founder
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
