Omnicell's Medication Management Automation Portfolio To Be Featured At The American Organization Of Nurse Executives 2018 Conference

Solutions to Improve Nurse Workflow and Patient Safety on Display in Booth #1403

Mountain View, CA /PRNewswire/ - Omnicell, Inc., (NASDAQ: OMCL), a leading provider of medication and supply management solutions and adherence tools for healthcare systems and pharmacies, will feature its award-winning platform of solutions at the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) 2018 conference, taking place April 12-15 in Indianapolis at the Indiana Convention Center. Omnicell's industry-leading medication management platform leverages automation and predictive analytics to simplify nurse workflows and reduce medication errors to help improve patient safety.

A clinical study highlighted that Omnicell® systems significantly increase nursing workflow efficiency, as evidenced by a 40 percent reduction in time from initial order to first dose administration of antibiotics.1 Omnicell's solutions help to maximize nurses' time, allowing them to spend more time with patients and increase job satisfaction rates.

Omnicell's workflow solutions and analytics tools will be on display at AONE 2018 in booth #1403. Solutions available in the booth for demonstration include:

  • XT Series Automated Medication Dispensing Cabinets, which help improve workflow efficiency, medication accountability, and patient safety through the latest hardware technology and smart software features. The XT automated dispensing system includes innovative functionality that improves how nurses manage medications, such as:
    • Software that lets nurses perform medication management tasks away from the cabinet via their computer workstation, which has saved at least 15 minutes per nurse during the morning med pass.2
    • A system for automating management of patient-specific medications within the dispensing cabinet, promoting patient safety and efficiency for nurses.
    • Controlled substance dispenser that eliminates the need for tedious narcotic counts at the cabinet that slow nurses down.
  • Interoperability with key electronic health record (EHR) systems that lets nurses perform many cabinet functions within the EHR and automatically identifies variances between medications dispensed from the cabinet versus medications documented as administered and/or wasted, saving significant time.
  • Omnicell Analytics, an easy-to-use, web-based diversion analytics software that transforms real-time data into actionable insight to help detect potential drug diversion more efficiently.

"At Omnicell, we understand the vital role nurses play in contributing to patient care, especially the impact their time at the bedside has on patient outcomes and satisfaction," said That H. Ngo, executive vice president, marketing, strategy, and business development at Omnicell. "We're excited to attend AONE 2018 and showcase how we work with nurses to maximize their time and positively impact care."
