Omnicell launches new medication, supply platform for improved interoperability

Omnicell, an automation and business analytics software company, has launched its Unity enterprise platform.

The Unity platform provides medication and supply automation solutions for hospitals and health systems. The latest release includes enhanced interoperability between Epic's EHR and the Omnicell automated dispensing cabinet.

The latest release also allows for interoperability between the Omnicell Anesthesia Workstation and Codonics Safe Label System.

"In central pharmacy, we realized we needed complete integration between our medication order system and EHR to better serve our nurses and ensure they are spending the maximum amount of time with patients, as opposed to administrative tasks," said Nilesh Desai, director of pharmacy at Hackensack (N.J.) University Medical Center. "By developing interoperability with Epic, Omnicell has created a solution that helps us achieve this goal. Our nurses love the new integration which enables the remote management of medications through the health record, their single source of truth, helping to reduce errors and provide safer medication management processes."
