The Omnicell XT Controlled Substance Manager (CSM) improves management of narcotics throughout the hospital. It integrates with the Omnicell® Automated Dispensing Cabinet and provides perpetual inventory management and an automated audit trail, including controlled substance inventory log, to help the pharmacy comply with regulatory standards while increasing efficiency.
New XT Series Cabinet Increases Capacity
The new Omnicell XT Series Automated Dispensing Cabinet offers greater capacity, so you can maximize narcotic storage in a small footprint. Its advanced fingerprint bioID system helps reduce the risk of diversion in the pharmacy.
XT Controlled Substance Manager extends medication accountability beyond the loading dock by providing automated, electronic ordering and receiving to medication distributors and the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Controlled Substance Ordering System (CSOS).
In addition to providing true closed-loop accountability for dispensing controlled substances, the intuitive purchasing platform:
- Supports system-wide inventory demands, arming pharmacy with vital information to make smarter purchasing decisions
- Makes it easier to optimize inventory levels and saves time during the order preparation process
