Omnicell's OmniLinkRx Honored With KLAS Award for Product Leadership

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Omnicell, Inc., (Nasdaq: OMCL) a leading provider of system solutions to acute healthcare facilities, today announced that KLAS, a prestigious third-party healthcare evaluation firm, awarded Omnicell's OmniLinkRx® with the Category Leader distinction for Medication Order Management Systems in the 2009 Top 20 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Professional Services report. OmniLinkRx received this award in the first year the product was eligible for consideration.

"Regional Health consists of five hospitals; three of these are Critical Access Hospitals and two are Sole Community Hospitals. Using OmniLink as our order management hub has allowed us to provide 24/7 pharmacy services to all five hospitals," said Dana Darger, director of pharmacy at Rapid City Regional Hospital. "Orders can now be handled from any one of the five hospitals at any time. OmniLink has greatly improved our ability to provide safe and effective patient care to all of our patients all of the time."

OmniLinkRx automates communication of medication orders between the nursing and pharmacy, improving the efficiency and productivity for both departments. By integrating easily with the rest of the pharmacy's information system, OmniLinkRx eliminates the delays caused by lost, misplaced or illegible paperwork which often leads to delayed patient therapy. OmniLinkRx allows for faster order time, reduced time spent processing and verifying medication orders, the elimination of paper management, and increased service to the nursing units.

"For more than a decade, the Best in KLAS awards have recognized healthcare technology companies that set the standard for delivering the best experience to providers," said KLAS President Adam Gale. "The Best in KLAS distinction honors more than just a good product or service. It represents a commitment to meeting customer expectations in every phase of the buying process – from the sales presentation to implementation to ongoing service and support."

Omnicell's OmniRX® medication dispensing cabinet system has also been honored by KLAS with the Category Leader distinction for Medication Dispensing – Decentralized for the last four consecutive years (2006-2009).

"Omnicell prides itself on delivering products that our customers appreciate and that improve patients' standard of care," said Marga Ortigas-Wedekind, Omnicell vice president, global marketing and product development.  "To be honored as Category Leader by KLAS for Medication Order Management System is extremely gratifying since this is based on our own customers' satisfaction and feedback. The KLAS results provide an excellent measurement of our success in achieving our goal of providing solutions that our customers value."
