Mountain View, California

Omnicell, Inc. (NASDAQ:OMCL) today announced that CaroMont Health, one of the leading regional healthcare providers in North Carolina, has selected Omnicell’s comprehensive, industry-leading medication management platform to help enhance financial performance and operational efficiency. This includes leveraging Omnicell Performance Center to better track medication inventory and usage, as well as the addition of IVX Workflow automation to support sterile compounding in central pharmacy and XT Series Automated Dispensing Cabinets to help improve patient care on nursing floors. 

Today’s hospital pharmacists are often bogged down by manual, inefficient processes that keep them from contributing directly to patient care.  According to the American Society of Health-system Pharmacists (ASHP), 76% of a pharmacist’s time is spent on non-clinical activities.

“Leveraging automation and analytics across our system—from the central pharmacy to patient care areas—will allow us to better track medication inventory and streamline provider workflows, helping to ensure our patients are receiving the highest quality of care,” said Mark Chaparro, Director of Pharmacy, CaroMont Health. 

Omnicell solutions chosen by the health system include: 

Omnicell® Performance Center™, a cloud-based predictive intelligence suite of solutions supported by ongoing optimization services that leverages medication usage data to help improve patient and provider outcomes. 

IVX Workflow, an innovative workflow solution that helps improve dose accuracy while reducing cost of sterile compounding operations. 

XT Automated Medication Dispensing Cabinets, designed to improve workflow efficiency, medication accountability, and patient safety in patient care areas. 

“Omnicell is proud to partner with CaroMont Health to support their medication management strategy through solutions that will optimize hospital staff time and help enhance quality of patient care,” said Scott Seidelmann, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Omnicell.
