Omnicell's OmniLinkRx Honored With KLAS Award For Medication Order Management Systems


MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Omnicell , Inc. (NASDAQ: OMCL), a leading provider of medication and supply management solutions and analytics software for 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 2011 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Services report. This is the third consecutive year that OmniLinkRx has received this award.

OmniLinkRx automates communication of medication orders between nursing and the pharmacy, improving efficiency and productivity for both departments. OmniLinkRx can also be used as a complement to Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE) installations. By integrating easily and coexisting with the rest of the pharmacy information system, OmniLinkRx helps eliminate interruptions caused by lost, misplaced or illegible paperwork that can often delay patient therapy. OmniLinkRx allows for faster order time, reduced time spent processing and verifying medication orders, elimination of paper management, and improved pharmacy support to nursing units.

OmniLinkRx was rated highest in overall satisfaction for medication order management systems and in the KLAS "buy again" category, 94 percent of hospital executives polled said they would buy OmniLinkRx again.

"Since 1998, KLAS has been committed to helping healthcare providers make decisions based on candid peer feedback," says Adam Gale, KLAS president. "Best in KLAS rankings mark those vendors who best keep their promises in their market segments for offering a combination of superior products, strong service, and high customer value. We hope these ratings continue to help providers find transparency from their vendors in making purchasing decisions."

Omnicell also received a KLAS ranking for the OmniRx® automated dispensing system for six consecutive years. From 2006 to 2009, OmniRx was awarded as the Product Leader in automated dispensing systems. In 2010 and 2011, OmniRx was awarded the "Best in KLAS" distinction for Automated Medication Dispensing Cabinets (over 200 beds) as well as Category Leader for hospitals under 200 beds. In 2010 and 2011, Omnicell was also awarded Category Leader for Pharmacy Automation Medication Carousels for its WorkflowRx™ and carousel. In 2011, Omnicell received yet another KLAS Category Leader award for its Anesthesia Workstation, the first time this market segment was eligible for KLAS distinction.

"We are pleased that our customers continue to validate our technology and service as illustrated by the consistent KLAS rankings in so many market segments," said Marga Ortigas-Wedekind, Omnicell vice president, global marketing and product development. "We are honored to receive the third consecutive KLAS award for OmniLinkRx and to be recognized by our customers and KLAS as the industry leader in medication order management systems."
