Advanced Services combine innovative technology, expertise, and intelligence intended to support business and clinical outcomes across all settings of care
SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Omnicell, Inc. (Nasdaq: OMCL) (“Omnicell” or the “Company”), a leading provider of medication management solutions and adherence tools for health systems and pharmacies, today announced that it will showcase the Company’s Advanced Services at this year’s American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Midyear 2022 Clinical Meeting and Exhibition, to be held December 5-8, 2022 in Las Vegas.
The ASHP Foundation Pharmacy Forecast 2022 recommends that practice leaders integrate the use of technology and data analytics to develop patient care models that optimize patient health outcomes.1 Omnicell’s Advanced Services combine technology, expertise, and intelligence, powered by a connected intelligent infrastructure, and are expected to enhance business and clinical outcomes across all settings of care, as part of the Company’s broader strategy to transform pharmacy care through a set of services built on a single cloud platform.
“Pharmacy represents one of the largest portions of healthcare spend and touches every patient in every setting of care.2 However, medication management is often riddled with problems, including disconnected systems and labor shortages, that may negatively impact outcomes,” said Scott Seidelmann, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Omnicell. “Our Advanced Services are designed to not only improve safety and patient care, but also to deliver tangible economic outcomes and a rapid return on investment for our customers, while keeping the patient at the center across all settings of care.”
