As a company that has been exclusively focused on medication and supply dispensing automation, Omnicell recognizes that our products must meet the demands of the hospital IT environment. That means keeping up with the latest hospital information technology standards and ensuring smooth, secure interoperability with your facility’s clinical information systems.
Omnicell Delivers the Latest Technology
Omnicell was the first automated dispensing cabinet (ADC) company to adopt the Windows® 7 operating system. We continued our trend of firsts by certifying our automated dispensing system against EHR Privacy and Security standards as defined under Stage 1 Meaningful Use criteria.
Our G4 Unity solutions also use the latest Intel® Core™ multiprocessor platform. In addition to assuring long-term support, these technologies and certifications improve reliability, security, and responsiveness of the Omnicell system, and enable enhancements such as:
- Daily automatic defragmentation of the hard drive without any disruption to user experience.
- Support for encrypted file transport (FTPS) and web communication (HTTPS) to securely protect transmitted data.
All G4 cabinets are domain-ready to meet your hospital IT requirements, and the universal eBox (electronics) used across the Omnicell product line ensures efficient service and maximum uptime.
Choice in Server Platform
The enterprise-class OmniCenter® server manages the day-to-day operations of your Omnicell automated medication and supply dispensing systems throughout your facility, and gives managers access to inventory use and other essential reports.
Centralized control—Servers reside within your organization’s data center, which ensures centralized support and controls, and leverages existing power and environmental investments.
Comprehensive data storage—Holds up to seven years of data, ensuring convenient access to historical information needed for audits.
Choice of architecture—Available in physical or virtual platforms (VMware certified).
Supports multiple sites—Manages the transaction volume of any size institution, from a long-term care facility to a large, acute care hospital or integrated delivery network (IDN). Multiple facilities can be supported on the same server and on a single database or isolated databases, minimizing the amount of hardware that hospital IT staff need to maintain.
Remote access—OmniCenter Remote Access (OCRA) allows access from any PC connected to the hospital’s network, giving great flexibility to users.
Focus on Interoperability and Security
Our interoperable, standards-based systems effectively complement other vendors' hospital information technology solutions. Our systems are able to share clinical information between disparate systems to eliminate redundant data entry and enhance reporting capabilities. In addition, our products can be automatically patched using Microsoft’s WSUS server.
To help you achieve greater operational efficiency and seamless connections with other healthcare information technology (HIT) systems, Omnicell has a dedicated integration services team. Our experts in HL7 interface development will facilitate a smooth integration of Omnicell solutions with your your financial, ADT, materials management, medical records, and pharmacy information systems.
Remote System Monitoring
Ensuring maximum uptime is important to us. Our service teams can proactively monitor and troubleshoot your Omnicell systems’ performance remotely and are often able to resolve the issue directly, so you don’t have to get involved or wait for someone to arrive on-site.
