Advance towards a zero-touch, zero-error central pharmacy

Performance-driven central pharmacy automation systems that improve safety, workflow, and inventory optimization.

Central pharmacy is the hub of care that patients and providers depend on. Roadblocks that surface there can influence all other areas of a healthcare system.

A manual and disjointed pharmacy inventory management system gets in the way of workflow efficiency—and safety. Not knowing the complete picture of medication inventory creates low accountability and a higher chance of errors, waste, and uncontrolled costs.

Transform your pharmacy to focus on clinically meaningful work

It starts with Omnicell pharmacy automation. Our robotic solutions automate everything from medication dispensing, sorting and packaging, to retrieval. This technology unites with an embedded layer of intelligence to deliver crucial, real-time pharmacy optimization and insights. Together, these tools and technology will free up clinicians for more patient-focused activities while transforming your central pharmacy into the smart, efficient, and accurate hub of care you need it to be.

A revolution in central pharmacy medication automation

Omnicell’s Central Pharmacy Dispensing Service is the cornerstone of the journey to a fully autonomous central pharmacy. It centers around groundbreaking pharmacy automation technology – the Omnicell XR2 system – and is surrounded by a comprehensive set of services designed to accelerate time to value realization and help you dynamically adapt over time to improve outcomes. 

The XR2 system helps eliminate errors during medication dispensing and improve inventory control. With fewer touch points needed, the high-speed XR2 automated pharmacy dispensing system frees up pharmacy staff for more clinically focused initiatives
