Wellforce Selects Omnicell's Medication Management Automation and Diversion Prevention Solutions
Automated medication management helps verify that the right patient receives the right medication at the right time, and it can also help keep hospital and patient costs down by reducing unaccounted for medications in the hospital. A recent study shows medication spending in hospitals increased by 23.4 percent annually from 2013 to 2015, making it more important than ever to ensure medications are secure in the inpatient setting.1
Both hospitals will be updating their automated medication distribution systems in the patient care areas. The goal is to improve patient safety and streamline provider workflows in the medication administration process. The facilities will also be using Omnicell Analytics, a drug diversion analytics platform that uses prescribing and medication administration data to help proactively prevent and identify drug diversion in the hospital.
"As we work together to evaluate how new solutions and technologies will support our existing and future members of the Wellforce network, patient safety will always be our central focus," said
"We are excited about the opportunity to support Wellforce's commitment to providing excellent care at lower costs, and are inspired by the personalized level of care the system's hospitals and physicians deliver to their patients," said
