Automated Dispensing Cabinets
Considered the most important pharmacy technology used today, automated dispensing cabinets play a critical role in medication safety and nurse efficiency.
It’s the ongoing dilemma. Anesthesia providers need instant access to medications, but pharmacy wants tighter control. With Omnicell medication workstations designed for the operating room you can have both.
Disparate healthcare systems create disjointed workflow and extra steps for caregivers. In order to increase efficiency and prevent errors, healthcare providers increasingly need interoperability between systems.
Arrangement Transitions Sales and Service of Former Aesynt Products to Omnicell
Mountain View, California
Omnicell, Inc., (NASDAQ: OMCL) a leading provider of medication and supply management solutions to healthcare systems and pharmacies, today announced it has reached an agreement with McKesson Canada under which direct sales of Omnicell’s former Aesynt® products will transition from McKesson Canada back to Omnicell. These products include central pharmacy robotics, AcuDose-Rx® automated dispensing cabinets and analytics. McKesson Canada will transition service of these products back to Omnicell as current customer support contracts expire.
“McKesson Canada will honor all existing customer contracts to ensure a smooth transition in partnership with Omnicell,” said Jean-Philippe Blouin, vice president Technology Solutions at McKesson Canada. He added, “McKesson Canada will continue to be the exclusive distributor of PACMED® and PACVision® in both the hospital and retail pharmacy market in Canada.”
“Omnicell has over 20 years of experience serving the Canadian market and we look forward to expanding the scope of our sales in Canada,” said J. Christopher Drew, president, North American Automation and Analytics at Omnicell. “Omnicell is committed to providing a smooth transition for the current customer base and delivering the same high quality of service they have been receiving from McKesson Canada.”
Omnicell currently sells and services automated dispensing systems, pharmacy automation, and analytics products via a direct sales force in Canada. Moving forward, Canadian customers will benefit directly from Omnicell’s entire portfolio, including its new XT Automated Dispensing Cabinets introduced last December.
