Beaumont Health Selects Omnicell’s Medication Management Platform and Services to Support Improved Financial and Clinical Performance

Omnicell, Inc. (NASDAQ: OMCL) today announced that Beaumont Health, the largest health system in Michigan, has selected the company’s medication management platform to support eight hospitals across the system. New automation on hospital floors, as well as in anesthesia procedural areas and the central pharmacy, will help improve medication security and safety. Additionally, Performance CenterTM, which combines a cloud-based predictive intelligence platform with ongoing optimization services, will empower the health system to leverage medication usage data to help improve patient outcomes. 

According to the Healthcare Financial Management Association, a health system’s current business technology typically includes numerous proprietary databases for specific financial and clinical functions.  In an effort to consolidate these various data sources across the health system, leaders at Beaumont Health sought a solution that would offer a single, enterprise-wide IT infrastructure, making it easier to track medication and monitor usage across various facilities and make more strategic medication management decisions. 

Further, the addition of Omnicell® Analytics along with the XT Series Automated Dispensing Cabinets helps enhance safety and security of all classes of medications. The new cabinets also provide increased storage capacity, giving nurses improved access to medications while minimizing restocks from central pharmacy. Interoperability with the health system’s electronic health record enables remote medication queuing that allows nurses to spend more time at the patient bedside. 

“We’re always looking for ways to streamline our processes, enhance visibility and improve operations across our health system,” said Kathleen Pawlicki, BS, MS, FASHP, vice president, chief pharmacist at Beaumont Health. “Beyond helping to improve medication security at the point of care, working with Omnicell will help us make smarter business decisions in our pharmacy and across our hospitals, which will allow our clinicians to provide better care to our patients.” 

“The number of patients and staff included under the umbrella of Beaumont Health is astounding, yet the health system continues to deliver the highest quality of care to each patient,” said Nhat Ngo, executive vice president, Marketing, Strategy & Business Development at Omnicell. “Beaumont recognizes the importance of scalable, enterprise-wide solutions to support continued growth.  We will offer new efficiencies and cost savings to enhance Beaumont’s clinical offerings as the system transforms its medication management strategy from facility-based to enterprise-wide.”
