Omnicell Showcases Outcomes-Centric Innovation at ASHP Midyear 2023

Robotics, Smart Devices, Software, and Expert Services Designed to Drive Enhanced Outcomes for Healthcare Providers Across the Care Continuum

Omnicell’s Advanced Services offerings provide varying combinations of robotics, smart devices, software, and expert services that are designed to deliver outcomes in each setting of care where medications are managed. These comprehensive offerings have helped many healthcare facilities reduce manual workflows and waste, improve inventory visibility, and allowed staff to focus on higher value tasks. These Advanced Services offerings are available for point of care, central pharmacy dispensing, IV compounding, inventory optimization, specialty pharmacy, and outpatient digital pharmacy services.

“Surrounding technology with actionable data and expert services has been pivotal in realizing value and ROI for our pharmacy operations,” said Arpit Mehta, PharmD, MPH, MHA, CPEL, Director of Pharmacy at Allegheny General Hospital. “We are able to make critical medication management decisions based on data-driven insights to improve patient safety, enhance efficiency, and ultimately realize significant cost savings.”

Advanced Services Overview

Omnicell’s full suite of Advanced Services offerings are designed to help healthcare pharmacies across the continuum of care to move closer to achieving the Autonomous Pharmacy, an industry-defined vision to replace manual, error-prone activities with automated processes that are designed to be safer and more efficient. These include:

Point of Care Service - Market leading automation designed to drive nursing and pharmacy efficiency offers expertise to improve solution adoption and optimization, and provide data-driven performance optimization, enabling nurses to spend less time on manual tasks and more time with patients.

Central Pharmacy Dispensing Service – Combining advanced robotic dispensing technology, dispensing optimization, and onsite and remote experts, this comprehensive offering is designed to help reduce medication dispensing errors and waste, improve accuracy, streamline workflows, and allow pharmacy labor resources to concentrate on higher value tasks.

IV Compounding Service - This powerful solution combines robotic technology, analytics tools, and onsite and remote experts all designed to help optimize IV accuracy and sterility while reducing waste. This solution has helped many health systems minimize outsourcing costs and OR drug waste and gain supply chain control through in-house IV compounding operations.

Inventory Optimization Service – Combining predictive and prescriptive analytics with clinical expertise for optimization support, this offering is designed to provide end-to-end inventory insights to enhance efficiency and reduce medication waste, expirations, shortages, and stockouts.

Specialty Pharmacy Services - This turnkey service is designed to help health systems establish, manage, and optimize an entity-owned specialty pharmacy helping to increase specialty growth and improve cost savings, improve access to Limited Distribution Drugs, and increase physician utilization for targeted disease states.

Outpatient Digital Pharmacy Services - A full suite of solutions provides pharmacies of all types with clinical and financial automation and a digital omnichannel patient engagement platform designed to improve efficiency and patient medication adherence.

“As pharmacy technology becomes more sophisticated and enhanced by machine learning and AI, we believe health systems need the resources that will allow them to realize the full potential of their medication management infrastructure to enhance outcomes,” said Randall Lipps, chairman, president, chief executive officer and founder of Omnicell. “Our Advanced Services offerings are designed to provide leading-edge technology along with the insights and optimization recommendations to help deliver clinical, financial, and operational goals, all supported by certified clinical and pharmacy experts.”
