Springhill Medical Center Selects Omnicell Medication Automation Solutions









MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Omnicell, Inc. (NASDAQ:OMCL), a leading provider of medication and supply management solutions and analytics software for healthcare facilities, today announced that Springhill Medical Center selected Omnicell as its exclusive provider for medication management solutions throughout its 252-bed hospital in Mobile, AL.  In addition to transitioning to Omnicell's automated medication solutions, Springhill is also using the industry-leading Pandora® business analytics solutions from Omnicell.  Prior to installing Pandora, Springhill was utilizing a much more labor intensive method of managing their healthcare data.

As the leading, family owned medical center in its region, Springhill Medical Center is committed to using state-of-the-art technology. As such, Springhill selected Omnicell's G4 platform for its forward-thinking approach to managing pharmacy and nursing workflow. For example, the Omnicell G4 platform offers improved interoperability with the hospital's electronic health record (EHR) system. In addition, Omnicell's Anywhere RN™ remote medication management system allows nursing staff to remotely access Omnicell cabinets from virtually anywhere in the patient care area, increasing time spent at the bedside and helping to improve patient satisfaction.

 "In order to be Mobile's best health care provider, Springhill recognizes the need to implement the most modern and efficient technologies," said Jeff St. Clair, President and CEO, Springhill Medical Center. "In our competitive review of medication automation systems, we found that Omnicell's advanced technology is unparalleled in the market. Omnicell's interoperability, user-friendly interface and forward-thinking approach to medication management set them apart in our search. We believe the move to Omnicell will provide us with the medication automation tools needed to continue to build our reputation as a leading medical center."

Springhill is implementing the following Omnicell solutions: 

  • OmniRx ® G4 Automated Medication Dispensing Cabinets (ADCs), including the integrated Medication Label Printer that allows nurses to print patient-specific labels right from the ADC during medication issue. The ADCs, which are used throughout the nursing floors, also include the Touch & Go G4 biometric ID system, designed with state-of-the-art biometric technology to improve efficiency and security.
  • Anywhere RN™ offers nurses a flexible approach to the medication administration process designed to positively impact nursing workflow and patient safety. It is a web-based application designed specifically for nurses that provides real-time remote access to the Omnicell cabinet from virtually any computer or workstation in the patient care area.
  • Pandora® Analytics provides insight into clinical operations, helping to identify potential diversion, ensure compliance and monitor nursing processes such as medication administration.

"Springhill Medical Center is an exceptional facility where patients can expect to receive an outstanding level of care," said J. Christopher Drew, executive vice president, field operations. "Omnicell is proud to begin our relationship with this hospital, and shares in Springhill's mission to provide clinicians with the technologies they need to provide state-of-the-art patient care. We are excited to continue to provide them with the advanced solutions needed to successfully manage medications and provide an optimal environment for both patients and their providers."
