Central Pharmacy Manager

Product Overview

With our Central Pharmacy Manager software, guesswork and manual data entry for orders is a thing of the past. This pharmacy management system provides real-time inventory data, tracks usage, and helps optimize inventory levels. You can better coordinate the flow of medication between wholesalers, the central pharmacy, nursing units, and satellite pharmacy sites.

Build Better Workflow With Central Pharmacy Management Software

Central Pharmacy Manager creates an automated pharmacy with best practice workflows:

Pharmacy Carousels—Integration with the carousel consolidates medication storage and streamlines picking and stocking processes  

Pharmacist Verification—To enhance patient safety, pharmacy verification automates the manual process of validating items prior to leaving the pharmacy

Prioritized Picking Queue—Pick transaction types can be ranked and color-coded by priority based on facility preferences

Automated Wholesaler Ordering—Significantly reduces time spent on ordering and receiving, and enables smarter purchasing decisions based on actual usage

Shared Database With Medication Dispensing Cabinets

To simplify operations and ensure a consistent user experience, Central Pharmacy Manager and Satellite Pharmacy Manager share a database with Omnicell automated dispensing cabinets (ADCs) and other systems on the Unity platform, via the OmniCenter® server.
