Schneck Medical Center Selects Omnicell G4 Platform For Automated Medication Management

Stocks in this article: OMCL

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Omnicell, Inc. (NASDAQ: OMCL), a leading provider of medication and supply management solutions and analytics software for healthcare facilities, today announced that Schneck Medical Center will implement the new fourth generation Omnicell G4 medication management solutions for pharmacy, nursing and perioperative care areas. The hospital chose Omnicell not only for the G4 technology platform, but also its modular approach to upgrades that allows Schneck to stay current with technology without the disruption of whole product replacement. Schneck expects to complete the installation in November 2011.  

"The Omnicell solutions offer state-of-the-art medication management solutions with improved data access and reporting features over those offered by our previous system," said Justin Brown, director of pharmacy at Schneck Medical Center. "At Schneck, we pride ourselves in leading the way with innovative technology and recognize that the Omnicell G4 platform offers industry-defining technology to help improve workflow and enhance patient safety."  

The G4 platform offers an intuitive user interface across the products and a single unified database across automated medication dispensing cabinets, helping to decrease the risk of human error and improve pharmacy workflow. With Schneck's previous medication management solution, pharmacy staff had to contact the vendor directly when reports were needed. With enhanced reporting capabilities in the G4 platform, Schneck will now have immediate access to data on medication usage and tracking.

Schneck will implement several new solutions from the Omnicell G4 platform, including:  

"Omnicell worked closely with Schneck Medical Center to identify their needs for medication management and Omnicell's unique financial business model includes flexible product upgrades to protect the hospital's long-term technology investment," said J. Christopher Drew, Omnicell senior vice president, field operations. "We are excited about this new partnership with Schneck and share their commitment to providing the highest levels of effective, safe patient care."
