Improve workflows, care and performance 
through the autonomous pharmacy.

Omnicell solutions offer workflow automation, data intelligence, and expert services that enable caregivers everywhere to focus on improving patient outcomes.

Accelerating the Evolution of Pharmacy

Designed to address clinical, operational, and population health challenges, the autonomous pharmacy can help clinicians safely and securely deliver the right dose to the right patient at the right time across the care continuum.

As clinical process engineers who care passionately about health and wellness, we’re dedicated to building the world’s first zero-error, fully automated medication management platform that empowers care professionals to deliver improved patient care, clinician satisfaction, and pharmacy performance.

Nodes on the Network

On-demand data about all of your medication and supplies, all the time.

A goal of the autonomous pharmacy is to transform each unit dose of medication and each medical supply item to a digital node on your network.

As medication moves from central pharmacy to point of care, pharmacists, nurses, and physicians use connected devices and integrated systems to access detailed information and easy-to-understand data insights.

An Opportunity for Radical Change

The autonomous pharmacy is a direct response to escalating challenges in medication and supply management across the continuum of care.

Healthcare leaders struggle with patient safety issues, staffing and operational inefficiencies, nonadherence, controlled substance monitoring, and a rapidly changing care landscape. Consolidation, vertical integration, regulation, staff shortages, and demands on the system from chronic disease have brought us to a critical point.

These challenges, compounded by error prone and manually intensive workflows, drive up cost while keeping pharmacists, nurses, and physicians from focusing on what matters most – positive health outcomes through safe and effective medication therapy.

Medication-related problems account for 40% of hospital readmissions.
Medication nonadherence is estimated to cost over $300 billion a year.
75% of pharmacy time is spent on non-clinical activity.

Omnicell customers around the world are responding to industry challenges by initiating change management and digital transformation strategies. These healthcare institutions are already experiencing the benefits of their autonomous pharmacy journey.

“I define the autonomous pharmacy as one in which pharmacy technicians manage automated, intelligent systems to run the practice of medication storage, preparation, and distribution... In turn, pharmacists are free to focus on the clinical aspects of patient care and also use intelligent systems to improve outcomes.”

“[Omnicell's Controlled Substance solution] closes the loop because it’s tracking what’s happening in the pharmacy and on the units. It’s full-circle...The unexpected surprise was how simple it is to use. It’s secure, has a small footprint, and it couldn’t be more intuitive. It just does what it’s supposed to do.”
