Date:9/27/2010

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Omnicell, Inc., (Nasdaq: OMCL) a leading provider of medication management systems to acute healthcare facilities, today announced Deaconess Health System's selection of Omnicell's OmniRx® automated medication dispensing systems and SecureVault™ controlled substance security system to improve the safety and efficiency of the medication management process across the health system network. Deaconess chose to replace its current vendor with Omnicell for its clear solutions upgrade path that combines a solid long-term investment with a high level of efficiency, customer service and patient safety.  

Deaconess Health System is a leading, award-winning system of five acute care facilities in southwestern Indiana. Deaconess' use of electronic health records (EHR) has been rated among the top two percent of hospitals in the U.S., for their progress in implementing a paperless medical record. It is one of only 133 hospitals nationwide to be awarded Stage 6 Certification by HIMSS Analytics, a subsidiary of the Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).

"Omnicell's best-in-class solutions allow clinicians to focus on delivering high levels of patient care, while providing the hospital with medication surveillance and actionable reporting tools," said Joyce Thomas, director of pharmacy, at Deaconess Health System.  "Omnicell solutions will give us the scalability to grow while maintaining a high level of medication safety and high security as we grow to serve more patients in our local communities."  

Omnicell solutions are designed to be easily integrated and interoperable with Deaconess' already existing IT network including the EPIC electronic health records system.  Deaconess Hospital is already in the process of integrating Omnicell solutions at the point-of-care, highlighting the company's customized implementation process.  

"Deaconess is well known in the Midwest and nationwide for its commitment to technology that enhances the patient care experience," said J. Christopher Drew, Omnicell senior vice president, field operations. "We are providing Deaconess with upgradeable solutions to maintain a standard of excellence in medication management and patient safety that will continue well into the future."
