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.
Streamline Controlled Substance Monitoring
How do you figure out if all the controlled substances removed from the automated dispensing cabinet were actually administered to patients or were wasted? Determining this information often requires tedious analysis of data from multiple reports.
With our Closed-Loop Dose Accountability solution for Siemens users, there is a much easier way. By linking data about medications issued from the Omnicell automated dispensing cabinet with medication administration records in the Med Administration Check™ system, pharmacy can easily identify variances between medications dispensed from the cabinet versus medications documented as administered and/or wasted.
