Omnicell Unveils Tissue Center Solution - Industry's First Integrated Tissue Tracking and Compliance System
Date:3/9/2009

Omnicell Tissue Center solution allows hospitals to electronically and efficiently manage and document their control of tissue specimens

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Omnicell, Inc. (Nasdaq: OMCL) a leading provider of system solutions to acute healthcare facilities, today introduced its Omnicell Tissue Center solution, which is the first in the industry. Debuted with the latest release of Omnicell OptiFlex(TM) 10.0 advanced supply chain management software, the Tissue Center helps hospitals increase efficiency of their tissue tracking processes and comply with regulations and recommendations issued by the Joint Commission and Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN).

Omnicell will be demonstrating the Omnicell Tissue Center in booth #478 at AORN, March 14-19, 2009, Hyatt Regency McCormick Place, Chicago.

"The Omnicell Tissue Center brings a flexible and integrated solution to hospitals for managing tissue ordering and receiving within the broader materials management arena," said Suzanne Alexander-Vaughn, supply product manager, Omnicell. "It's a complete solution - order, receive, transfer, store, issue, document and report."

The Omnicell Tissue Center solution includes bar code and touch screen technology to increase ease-of-use and accuracy versus systems reliant more on keyboard entry. The tissue tracking solution is implemented with the option of open or closed cabinet management and FlexLock, a remote locking mechanism, with TempCheck which monitors refrigerator temperature continuously.

A 600 bed medical facility, located in Alabama, with 35 operating rooms and specialties in cardiovascular medicine and surgery, orthopedics, neurology and neurosurgery, has installed an Omnicell Tissue Center solution to reduce consumption and inventory, increase charge capture and improve overall efficiency and productivity. Omnicell OptiFlex 10.0 is increasing the return-on-investment for this facility while increasing efficiency in materials management and specialty areas.

Hospitals are under increasing pressure to implement and demonstrate effective tissue management. Joint Commission standards designed to help reduce infections in tissue and implant recipients require hospitals to upgrade their tissue storage and issuance processes. In addition, the AORN has guidelines that address the importance of carefully tracking the tissue identification banks, licensing agencies and registration information, as well as the name of the recovery or distribution center. The newly released Omnicell Tissue Center solution helps hospitals comply with these standards and improve patient safety by enabling hospitals to electronically and efficiently manage and document their control of tissue specimens.

For more information about Omnicell OptiFlex 10.0 with its unique tissue tracking features, please attend the "Tissue Issues" symposium on Tuesday, March 17, from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place. You may also visit www.omnicell.com or call 1-(800) 850-6664.
