About Omnicell

About Us

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.

Omnicell Today

At Omnicell, we’re inspired to create safer and more efficient ways to manage medications and supplies across all care settings. By automating what are often disconnected, manual, and at times dangerous processes, we’re helping to improve clinical and financial outcomes, allowing caregivers to focus on what’s most important—the patient.

We work with healthcare providers to drive operational efficiency by removing tedious tasks and waste.
Regardless of distribution model, our solutions automate manual processes—including ordering, receiving, stocking, and picking medications.

Leveraging a unified platform, our inventory management solutions and services give visibility to opportunities to optimize workflows, monitor inventory, and reduce costs. Our solutions allow healthcare providers and pharmacies to:

  • Ensure safety and efficiency in patient care areas
  • Increase central pharmacy efficiency and compliance
  • Support safe, accurate IV compounding
  • Keep medications secure, yet accessible in surgical/specialty areas
  • Gain real-time inventory visibility and manage diversion
  • Improve medication adherence in post-acute facilities and at home

Omnicell has been recognized with a top KLAS award every year since 2006.
