Omnicell is First to Demonstrate Automated Dispensing Cabinet Interoperability at HIMSS11 Showcase
Date:2/17/2011

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Omnicell, Inc., (Nasdaq: OMCL) a leading provider of medication management systems to healthcare facilities, will demonstrate its interoperable standards-based technology solutions during the HIMSS11 Interoperability Showcase. The Showcase is part of the 2011 Annual HIMSS Conference and Exhibition and is held in collaboration with Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE). The Showcase will be located in Hall E of the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from February 20-24, 2011.

Omnicell will join the Connected Demonstration area at the Showcase that includes connected clinical health IT products to illustrate how the use of interoperable standards-based systems improve patient care. This is the first time automated dispensing cabinets will be featured in the pharmacy domain area of the showcase. Omnicell will also be presenting on the topic of Medication Management in a Hospital Inpatient Setting. The track will feature Omnicell's automated dispensing cabinet interfacing with a leading healthcare information system (HIS) vendor and a HL7 integration software company. The HL7 integration software vendor will process patient admissions by sending events such as admits, transfers and discharges to Omnicell. The HIS will act as both the computerized prescriber order entry (CPOE) and pharmacy information system (PIS). Medication orders will be processed and verified by CPOE. Omnicell will then receive all verified medication orders, allowing drugs to be dispensed from the cabinet. Omnicell will communicate all drug dispenses back to the PIS.

"Omnicell is excited to be part of the interactive Interoperability Showcase exhibit where we will demonstrate how our medication management systems can effectively complement other vendor solutions in the hospital inpatient setting," says Marga Ortigas-Wedekind, Omnicell vice president, global marketing and product development. "We are delighted to be the first automated medication system to demonstrate interoperability in the pharmacy domain area of the Showcase."

Omnicell products will also be demonstrated at HIMSS11 in the Omnicell booth #3801. Omnicell will display its automated dispensing cabinets along with the Anywhere RN™ remote cabinet communication capability, the Savvy™ mobile medication system (MMS) and the PandoraVIA™ 2.0 analytics software.

Anywhere RN provides nurses with the option to remotely access an Omnicell automated dispensing cabinet from any hospital computer or workstation as well as the Savvy mobile medication system. Anywhere RN increases the nurses' ability to access a patients' medication in a safer and more efficient manner, allowing clinicians to focus on patient care.

Savvy integrates Omnicell's automated dispensing cabinets with the secure mobile medication system to safely transport medications to the bedside. The unique Savvy MMS provides efficient workflow support, saving nursing time and minimizing the risk of interruptions to enhance patient safety.  

PandoraVIA 2.0 analytics software includes improved drug diversion detection, customizable user options and new inventory management controls among other features designed to improve medication safety and regulatory compliance in hospitals.
