Siemens

  • Interoperability | Omnicell

Product Overview

Omnicell offers direct integration between our automated medication dispensing cabinets and the Siemens Sorian® electronic health record (EHR) to improve medication management workflow. 

Closed-Loop Dose Accountability

Imagine having the confidence of knowing that a medication was actually administered to the patient—in the right dose and time period—rather than simply knowing that it left the dispensing cabinet. Determining this information often requires tedious analysis of data from multiple reports. 

With our Closed-Loop Dose Accountability solution for Siemens users, there is a much easier way. By linking data about medications issued from the Omnicell automated dispensing cabinet with medication administration records in the Med Administration Check™ system, pharmacy can easily identify variances between medications dispensed from the cabinet versus medications documented as administered and/or wasted.

Benefits

  • Increased vigilance of controlled substances
  • Saves nurse and pharmacy time spent tracking variances
  • End of shift report identifies outstanding waste for nursing
