MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. and KNOXVILLE, Tenn., June 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Omnicell, Inc., (Nasdaq: OMCL) a leading provider of system solutions to acute healthcare facilities, and the University of Tennessee Medical Center today announced the successful implementation of SinglePointe(TM), a total automated patient-specific medication management solution. As a 581-bed not-for-profit academic medical center committed to providing exceptional care for its patients, the University of Tennessee Medical Center uses the SinglePointe solution as a way to store, manage and track patient-specific medications. The result is improved pharmacy and nursing efficiency, which in turn increases patient safety.

"At the University of Tennessee Medical Center, the SinglePointe solution increases efficiency and patient safety by providing a single point of access for patient specific medications that provides control and accountability as part of our cartless medication system," said Jim Hinkle, associate director of Pharmacy, University of Tennessee Medical Center. "As a result of this implementation, our staff members have an increased focus on patient care as seen with the decreased number of pharmacy returns."

First announced at the ASHP December 3, 2007 meeting in Las Vegas, attendees of the ASHP 2008 Summer Meeting and Exhibition, Washington State Convention and Trade Center, Seattle, June 8-11 are also invited to see the SinglePointe solution demonstrated first-hand. Hinkle will be joining Omnicell representatives June 9-10 in Seattle at Omnicell booth #420 and will be available to answer questions and share his impressions regarding the University of Tennessee Medical Center's implementation of the SinglePointe solution.

"With the use of the SinglePointe solution, the University of Tennessee Medical Center is taking a leap forward in medication management by providing a single point of access for all patient medications," said Richard Caldwell, senior product manager, Medication Systems, Omnicell. "In addition to providing storage and control for patients' home medications, the SinglePointe solution provides an intelligent, just-in-time restock process and automatic management of discontinued medications, transfer patient medications, and discharged patient medications. We applaud the hospital's leadership and dedication to its patients."
