Determined to improve the amount of time spent by clinicians with their patients, Randall Lipps founded Omnicell in 1992. For more than 20 years now, the company has been improving how hospitals and health care facilities interact directly with their patients by managing the facilities’ supplies. The company was founded under the premise that when the supplies and medications of the facility is better managed, it would improve the standard of care of clinicians and spend more time with their patients.
Omnicell today is recognized as the leading provider of advanced comprehensive automation. Through its systems, it allows health care facilities to efficiently manage, dispense and acquire delivery medication and supplies. With the deployment of Omnicell’s systems, facilities will no longer face any instances of depleting their medications and having to wait for supplies to come in. From the patient’s entry to the hospital to any point within the facility until their long term care sites, the system of Omnicell is able to manage the medication needs of the patient without the clinicians spending more time doing it.
Every year since 2006, the company’s suite of advanced technology systems has been recognized by KLAS for its contribution to the healthcare system. In addition, the business also looks after the interest of its customers by providing them training and education program, analytics software and first class customer support. The key product lines of Omnicell include business analytics, medication management systems, central pharmacy automation, supply management systems and medication adherence packaging. The network of users of Omnicell’s systems includes 6,000 retail and institutional pharmacies that are connected with 2,800 acute care customers worldwide.
Headquartered in Mountain View, California, Omnicell is determined to improve the environment inside health care facilities. By deploying their systems, institutions are able to improve the efficiency of their operations, lower the cost of running the business and reduce errors in dealing with patient medications.
