Automated Dispensing Cabinets that Enable Smarter, Safer Medication Management

Managing medications is a critical part of patient care—you can't afford to waste time or make mistakes. Omnicell® XT Automated Dispensing Cabinets create a smarter, safer process for getting the right medication to the right patient, helping to improve the patient medication and healthcare experience.

  • Increase medication safety and security through metal locking lid drawers and features like an integrated Medication Label Printer with barcoded labels
  • More efficiently manage inventory with up to 30% greater capacity compared with similar ADC units on the market
  • Easily expand or modify the automation system as your needs change
  • Remove redundant workflow through advanced integration between the ADC and electronic health record (EHR) systems
  • Ideal for acute and long-term care sites, XT offers more cabinet choices than other automated dispensing systems and includes a range of supply cabinets.

Automated Dispensing Solutions with Nurse-Friendly Innovations

  • Unique automated dispensing solution for managing controlled substances without the need for countbacks at the ADC
  • Automated method for managing patient-specific medications—30% decrease in missing doses
  • Remote cabinet access for more efficient med passes—54% reduction in cabinet removal time—and increased safety due to fewer interruptions1

Integration Between Omnicell Automation and Intelligence Solutions

Unlike other automated dispensing systems that simply provide reports to sift through, the XT Automated Dispensing System is enhanced by a layer of data intelligence—Omnicell Essentials. The cloud-based Essentials dashboard quickly reveals medication inventory and drug diversion issues, pointing you to areas that need attention.

For pharmacies using our premier Omnicell One™ intelligence solution to improve inventory management, a unique workflow application is available for Omnicell XT Automated Dispensing Cabinets that helps optimize par levels and expiration date management.
