Omnicell’s Dubai center, the first of its kind by a leading medication and supply automation provider, was opened in May 2011.  Since that time, several training sessions for students from six countries have been held.

“Because of our permanently-staffed Dubai office and training facility, Omnicell is well situated to provide state-of-the-art training for the leading hospitals across the region and ensure our customers are able to take advantage of the best available technologies for medication and supply automation.  We conduct training using only our latest available technology, the G4 platform,” said Gary Ervin, Omnicell vice president of international operations.  “Omnicell is committed to delivering our award-winning solutions, quality and customer service for our customers throughout the Middle East, tailored to meet local healthcare requirements.  We have a consistent philosophy worldwide to provide only the best technology and customer support experience possible.”

Omnicell automation solutions are recognized with top honors by the leading independent rating agency, KLAS, based on extensive interviews of U.S. healthcare executives.  For example, Omnicell has achieved the top KLAS distinction six years in a row for the OmniRx® automated medication system as well as “Best in KLAS” distinctions for its Pharmacy Automation Medication Carousels and the KLAS Category Leader award for its Anesthesia Workstation.  In customer surveys, Omnicell has been consistently recognized for its innovation and long-term customer satisfaction.

Omnicell’s leading automation technologies will be on display during its third year of exhibiting at Arab Health at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Center, the region’s premier healthcare exhibition, from January 23 to 26.  Omnicell will feature its recently introduced G4 medication automation platform on a single unified medication database, the Savvy Mobile Medication System and the newly designed Anesthesia Workstation.  Also featured is the new integrated Medication Label Printer, a unique Omnicell solution that supports accurate medication administration with patient-specific labels that are efficiently printed at the mediation cabinet.
