MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Omnicell, Inc. (NASDAQ:OMCL), a leading provider of medication and supply management solutions and analytics software for healthcare facilities, will demonstrate the interoperability of its automated dispensing systems with an array of other medical systems in the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase at the 2013 HIMSS Conference and Exhibition in New Orleans. Omnicell has also been selected to participate in the Intelligent Hospital™ Pavilion, which provides a practical overview of how diverse technologies, including medical devices and systems, can interoperate to improve patient care.
Omnicell will also showcase its G4 Unity platform at HIMSS booth 8141, including the debut of an enhanced version of its Controlled Substance Management System (CSM), which supports healthcare facilities requiring inventory accountability of medications stored on open shelving within secured vault environments. The CSM system also supports the management of controlled substances in secured dispensing cabinets and refrigerators.
CSM extends medication accountability beyond the loading dock by providing automated, electronic ordering to medication distributors and the Drug Enforcement Administration's Controlled Substance Ordering System (CSOS). The agnostic CSM ordering system gives users the freedom to change distribution vendors and helps to reduce the time spent on the medication ordering process. An independent study showed use of CSM reduced time spent preparing distributor orders by up to 83 percent and reduced time spent preparing CSOS orders for issue by up to 90 percent. 1For the third consecutive year, Omnicell will participate in the HIMSS 2013 Interoperability Showcase. Attendees will see a demonstration of the interoperability of Omnicell's automated dispensing systems with an array of other medical systems in an Intensive Care Unit scenario highlighting the coordination of patient care as evidenced by the movement of patient data across the hospital.
