Solutions to Advance Collaboration and Standardization Between Five Facilities in Recently Established Health System
July 28, 2016
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.
Omnicell, Inc. (NASDAQ: OMCL) today announced that Rochester Regional Health (“Rochester Regional”), a five-hospital health system in western New York, has selected the Company’s medication automation solutions for its hospital floors and operating rooms to promote the highest level of patient care. Formed in 2014, Rochester Regional is currently installing Omnicell® automated medication dispensing systems in two of its five hospitals that collectively serve over 1,300 beds, with plans to implement the automation into all five facilities by 2018.
As Rochester Regional continued to consolidate its members into one cohesive health system, decision makers sought to simplify workflows for pharmacists and nurses and to help support standardization of processes that will benefit patients across the health system.
After conducting a thorough evaluation that involved stakeholders from each of the five facilities, as well as representatives from pharmacy, nursing and the C-suite, Rochester Regional found that Omnicell solutions would best support its long-term goals as it further integrates and streamlines operations in the coming years.
“Patient care and patient safety are paramount at all Rochester Regional Health facilities,” said Emily O’Banion, Rochester Regional Health Senior Vice President, Integrated Health Care Delivery. “The Omnicell solution allows us to achieve our goals of standardization of medication processes and is closely aligned with our electronic medical record system.”
“We are excited to join Rochester Regional as they continue to develop their unified position as a leading health system in the western New York region,” said J. Christopher Drew, President, North American Automation and Analytics for Omnicell. “By partnering early in the health system’s history, we embrace the opportunity to support both operational and clinical excellence as they continue to offer leading patient care across their hospitals.”
