How the Cloud Can Elevate Healthcare and Medication Management

Michael Korthuis
VP of Engineering, Omnicell

Data intelligence is nothing new to healthcare. Providers, government, and payers all are leveraging technology to improve efficiency, compliance, affordability, and ultimately patient care. And while some healthcare entities are still hesitant to move data into the cloud — that’s exactly where it needs to be to maximize its potential impact.

On Nov. 10, join me for a non-technical discussion about how cloud infrastructure can positively impact your pharmacy operation in a session titled, “How the Cloud Can Elevate Healthcare and Medication Management,” as part of Omnicell Illuminate 2020.

Medications are one of the highest budget line items for health systems, and over 10% of overall healthcare spend. So, it stands to reason that hospitals want to closely manage their medication inventory to reduce costs and free up budget for staff and further investment. The richness of cloud-based data allows doctors, nurses, and pharmacists to view lab results or consult on medication notes, improving collaboration between healthcare teams regarding treatment plans that can now happen securely with a single click.

The health system pharmacy is a key department where cloud-based data and technology can have a significant impact.  Having visibility into your medication inventory through a cloud-based solution allows for the precise tracking and tracing throughout the entire medication supply chain and lifecycle — from the wholesaler to the nurse’s glove to the patient.

During this session, we’ll be focusing on:

  • Insights on why it makes sense to harness the power of the cloud
  • Confidence in why the cloud is safe and secure for healthcare
  • Understanding what’s possible when you migrate pharmacy data to the cloud

You’ll come away with a confident understanding that a cloud-based solution — with predictive and prescriptive analytics, identification of diversion risks, and real-time data — is the most intelligent approach to medication management.
