Omnicell® IVX Workflow is an all-in-one device designed for easy placement within laminar airflow (LAF) hoods or isolators. It supports best practices in aseptic technique by providing step-by-step instructions to guide technicians in preparing IV doses according to set protocols—safely, accurately, and repeatedly. 

IVX Workflow is powered by Omnicell® IVX Cloud, a fully web-based software suite designed to manage all aspects of IV compounding workflow operation across a hospital or health system. IVX Cloud enables management of orders throughout the IV compounding process, with capabilities including:

  • Comprehensive formulary management, including access to Omnicell's cloud-based formulary database for specific gravity data, cGMP beyond use dating (BUD) studies, and consumable configuration
  • Flexible workflow design to create risk-based workflows
  • Remote pharmacist checking
  • Robust reporting and analytics to drive optimization and efficiency
  • Integration with pharmacy and hospital information systems

IVX Cloud will also be integrated with Simplifi 797®, providing hospital pharmacies with a comprehensive solution to address safety, quality and compliance across compounding operations. A turnkey quality management solution from Wolters Kluwer, Simplifi 797 simplifies, streamlines, and automates USP < 797 > and USP < 800 > compliance processes and cleanroom operations, enabling a measurable reduction in resources required to comply with USP standards. It leverages expert content to provide best practice tools and resources—risk management and quality assurance practices, comprehensive policies and procedures, staff training and evaluations—to elevate staff competencies and keep staff and patients safe.

"The launch of IVX Workflow and IVX Cloud is another example of Omnicell's commitment to innovation, developing new technology to address our customers' most critical challenges," said Rob Seim, president, Global Automation and Medication Adherence. "We continue to focus on opportunities, across the continuum of care, where we can leverage our broadening portfolio to positively impact the future of healthcare."

Omnicell will be showcasing the IVX Workflow and IVX Cloud solutions at the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) 52nd Annual Midyear Clinical Meeting & Exhibition in Orlando, December 3 through 7. To learn more, visit
