Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Omnicell partner to develop centralized pharmacy services

Lebanon, N.H.-based Dartmouth-Hitchcock health system joined forces with Omnicell Performance Center to establish a centralized pharmacy service center at its main campus.

The Omnicell Performance Center combines a cloud-based predictive intelligence platform with optimization services. The performance center's team of supply chain and pharmacy experts will partner with Dartmouth-Hitchcock's pharmacy team to improve pharmacy services, including managing shortage and expiration risk.

Dartmouth-Hitchcock plans to move the centralized pharmacy service center to a centralized warehouse in 2019.

"As with other hospitals across the country, the main goal of our pharmacy is to ensure that medications are available to the patients who need them when they need them most," said Thomas J. Siepka, chief pharmacy officer at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. "The Performance Center helps us achieve this goal by showing us where our medications are being used so we can allocate them best throughout our health system."
