January 12, 2010– Omnicell, Inc. (Nasdaq: OMCL), a leading provider of medication system solutions to acute healthcare facilities, today announced that the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital has chosen Omnicell as its primary vendor for automated medication management solutions.
“To effectively manage and promote safety of medications for our patients, we need a system that can account for and monitor medications from the pharmacy to the nursing station to the point-of-care. Omnicell is helping us meet this need,” said Karol Wollenburg, vice president and apothecary-in-chief at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.
Omnicell’s solutions will provide the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital — the nation’s largest not-for-profit, non-sectarian hospital — with an advanced automated dispensing system that integrates with the existing infrastructure. The Omnicell solutions will allow the Hospital to shift to a highly efficient medication management model in order to improve nursing and pharmacy workflows while increasing medication surveillance.
Omnicell’s SinglePointe™ software enables clinical staff to monitor and control medications throughout the hospital and pharmacy environments, which in turn helps to reduce preventable medication errors. SinglePointe is a proprietary software solution that creates a secure and easy way to stock all of a patient’s medications within a single safe location — the cabinet.
