Omnicell Launches Pharmacy Locator to Connect Consumers with Pharmacies Supporting Medication Adherence Technology

Omnicell, Inc., (NASDAQ: OMCL), today announced the availability of the web-based Find-A-Pharmacy tool, which helps connect consumers and their families with pharmacists committed to improving the health of their patients through better medication adherence. By offering SureMed® by Omnicell® multiple medication adherence blister cards, pharmacists are helping patients greatly reduce the complexities of managing and taking multiple medications daily. Currently over one million people use SureMed to help successfully remain in compliance with physician-recommended therapy. The SureMed blister cards organize complex medication regimens by time of day and day of the week, making it easy for patients to know what to take and when.

More than 30 million Americans take multiple medications on a daily basis and many find great difficulty in remaining adherent. The Find-A-Pharmacy tool connects patients to the nearest pharmacy that offers SureMed multimed blister cards, providing access to resources that help address the challenges of medication adherence.

Non-adherence costs the U.S. health care system over $105 billion annually, emphasizing the vital need to forge this connection in combatting this public health issue. In an era of coordinated care, patients must rely on both their primary care physicians and pharmacists to ensure proper adherence to recommended therapies. The FAME Study demonstrated that Omnicell multimed adherence packaging has a significant impact on adherence and clinical outcomes, when used as part of a comprehensive pharmacy care program. Pharmacists are uniquely suited to engage with patients and confirm their adherence each month at the point of refilling.

The Find-A-Pharmacy tool has been integrated into the Omnicell website to offer a convenient source for consumers to connect with pharmacies committed to medication adherence packaging solutions. At launch, Find-A-Pharmacy will include over 900 physical and mail-order pharmacies across 49 states. As a pharmacy resource, the platform effectively brings the patient to a pharmacy that offers an adherence program. This tool will likely enable pharmacies to strengthen their customer loyalty based on quality care and improve patient outcomes through effective medication adherence solutions.

"As an independent pharmacy chain that takes pride in our dedication to our customers, our priority is to provide resources that position the patient to improve their health," says Alpesh Patel, R.Ph, president, Benzer Pharmacy. "At Benzer, our passion is working directly with each patient and forming a personal relationship as we help them accomplish their clinical goals of adherence and easier medication management. Our greatest reward is seeing customers come back every month to work with our pharmacists to stay healthy and independent. As we expand to over 20 states this year, the Find-A-Pharmacy tool lets patients and families looking for adherence solutions and pharmacist support know we're in their area."

"Pharmacists play an integral role in the lives of patients when it comes to adherence; they speak directly to the patient about medication regimens, they build a relationship with these patients, and also provide physical tools that support medication adherence, such as the SureMed blister cards," says Troy Hilsenroth, vice president and general manager, Medication Adherence Division of Omnicell. "The Omnicell Find-A-Pharmacy platform showcases and supports the pharmacies that are committed to providing the best possible care to their patients by implementing tools that will promote adherence once they leave the pharmacy. By providing the nearest location of adherence pharmacies, consumers will have access to the resources they need to improve their own health."
