Advance towards a zero-touch, zero-error central pharmacy
Performance-driven central pharmacy automated medication dispensing solutions that improve safety, workflow, and inventory optimization.
Central pharmacy is the hub of care that patients and providers depend on. Roadblocks that surface there can influence all other areas of a healthcare system. Manual and disjointed processes get in the way of workflow efficiency—and safety. Not knowing the complete picture of medication inventory creates low accountability and a higher chance of errors, waste, and uncontrolled costs.

A revolution in central pharmacy medication management
Omnicell’s Central Pharmacy Dispensing Service is the cornerstone of the journey to a fully autonomous central pharmacy. It introduces groundbreaking technology—the Omnicell XR2 system—that automates medication management to help eliminate errors during medication dispensing and improve inventory control. With fewer touch points needed, the XR2 system frees up the pharmacy for more clinically focused initiatives.
The XR2 supports both cartless and cartfill distribution strategies through unit dose and multidose dispensing capabilities. Complemented by Omnicell carousels and packagers, which can store medications and produce unit doses for XR2, the system helps you achieve a complete, seamless, uninterrupted refill process in your central pharmacy.

This automation gives you greater peace of mind about the security of controlled substances in your facility.
