Erlanger Health Systems recently picked Omnicell, Inc.'s medication management and workflow solutions to further the organization's goal of being an industry-leading health system.
"This project was not just about evaluating technology – it reflected how deeply we care about the community we serve and the responsibility we have to ensure best clinical practices are carried out," Allen Broome, director of pharmacy at Erlanger Health System, said. "We had the opportunity to redesign exactly how we wanted our medication processes to work."
The selection and incorporation of Omnicell technology will help with not only patient safety but also operational efficiency. Omnicell's complete solution provides medication security within the acute care field.
"It has been a pleasure to support Erlanger as they evaluated all their options before partnering with us," J. Christopher Drew, Omnicell executive vice president of sales and marketing, said. "While already considered one of the nation's most respected health systems, undergoing the decision process speaks to the high standards Erlanger holds itself to. This implementation is just the beginning, and we look forward to supporting the Erlanger mission of excellence for a long time to come."
The Omnicell solutions that Erlanger fit to its unique needs include: automated medication dispensing cabinets; WorkflowRx; medication carousel; controlled substance manager; anesthesia workstation; Pandora analytics; Anywhere RN; and SinglePointe.
