Glens Falls Hospital Selects Omnicell Medication Management Solutions to Support Improved Quality of Care and Patient Experience

New Medication Management Systems Support Ongoing Innovation and Collaboration between Nursing and Pharmacy

Omnicell, Inc. today announced that Glens Falls Hospital will implement Omnicell’s solutions for medication management to help improve workflows for pharmacy and nursing at its 300-bed facility in Glens Falls, New York. The partnership will support Glens Falls’ mission to maximize efficiency, support best practice clinical workflows and focus on patient care initiatives by providing reliable, automated systems for effectively managing medications throughout the hospital.

As the United States healthcare industry transitions to a value-based reimbursement model, enriching the patient experience while reducing time spent on manual processes becomes critical. Implementing Omnicell solutions will help enhance hospital patient safety while reducing hours spent on menial tasks, leaving more time for patient care.

“During our recent selection process for an automated dispensing system, we recognized the importance of having a partner who could insure interoperability with our EMR system as well as provide efficiency, quality, and safety within our workflow,” said Nancy Huntington, Pharmacy Director at Glens Falls Hospital.

Glens Falls will be implementing Omnicell® XT Series Automated Dispensing Cabinets for the safe and efficient dispensing of medications on hospital floors.  The XT system features seamless interoperability with the hospital’s existing Cerner electronic health record system, which creates greater efficiency for nursing by removing redundant tasks during medication administration.  The hospital will be adding the XT Anesthesia Workstation™ in operating rooms to allow for secure storage and timely access of medications, and Central Pharmacy Manager software to support automated management and increased visibility of medication inventory. To help prevent drug diversion, which can have serious patient safety consequences, Glens Falls will also be implementing Controlled Substance Manager, a system that integrates with the automated dispensing cabinets, and Omnicell Analytics, web-based software that provides insights into potential drug diversion activity.

“We were honored to be chosen by Glens Falls in its decision to upgrade medication management solutions throughout the hospital,” said J. Christopher Drew, president of North American Automation and Analytics at Omnicell. “Their forward-thinking stakeholders in pharmacy, nursing, and IT were searching for reliable, innovative solutions, and we are excited to be able to offer them products in our portfolio that will serve their needs.  We look forward to continuing to partner with Glens Falls to solve additional challenges in the future.”
