NYU Langone Health Expands Strategic Partnership with Omnicell for Automated Medication Management Solutions

Omnicell, Inc. (NASDAQ: OMCL) today announced that NYU Langone Health in New York has chosen the Company’s automated medication management platform to help improve patient outcomes at its new inpatient hospital, the Helen L. and Martin S. Kimmel Pavilion. The addition of Omnicell® XT Automated Medication Dispensing Cabinets, Omnicell XT Anesthesia Workstation™, and Omnicell XT Controlled Substance Manager in the state-of-the-art facility builds on the health system’s long-time relationship with Omnicell. NYU Langone is ranked in the top 20 Best Hospital Honor Roll by U.S. News and World Report.1

In a recent survey 87 percent of registered nurses agreed that they are playing an increasingly important role in patient management and care coordination.2 In order to help improve nursing workflow efficiency and elevate nurses’ roles in patient-facing interactions, NYU Langone collaborated with Omnicell to develop an innovative medication management strategy that places medications in secure storage drawers and is integrated into the Omnicell software platform and the hospital’s electronic health record. Helping support the needs of patients and staff, the patient-specific medication storage device is located near the patient bedside and is intended to further enhance efficiency and allow nurses to spend more time with each patient.

Complementing this technology, NYU Langone selected Omnicell XT cabinets, which incorporate the latest hardware technology and smart software features to help improve medication safety. These cabinets are integrated with the XT Controlled Substance Manager, which provides perpetual inventory management and an automated audit trail for controlled substances to help the pharmacy comply with regulatory standards while increasing efficiency.

“The ability to create a new building from the ground up has allowed us to incorporate the most advanced automation infrastructure to support excellent care,” said Mark Pollard, vice president of operations at NYU Langone. “Through our partnership with Omnicell, we were able to create a technology strategy with customized solutions that best fit our patient-focused goals, ultimately creating a facility that puts patients at the center of care.” 

To help maintain safety in the operating suites, the health system chose the XT Anesthesia Workstation, which securely stores medications and supplies needed for a full day of cases. The automated system also tracks inventory used and gives anesthesia providers instant access to medications while cutting hours of manual documentation for the pharmacy. 

“Over the years, we have continued to be impressed by NYU Langone’s dedication to delivering the highest level of care to their community. The new facility offers a rare opportunity to apply best practices they have developed for patient care to all areas of the hospital,” said Scott Seidelmann, chief commercialization officer at Omnicell. “We are proud to support NYU Langone’s commitment to innovation and vision for positive patient outcomes through our automated medication management solutions.”
