Greater Hudson Valley Health System Adds New XT Series to Expand Omnicell Partnership

Long-time Customer Upgrades Medication Management Technology Across Three Hospitals

Omnicell, Inc. today announced that the Greater Hudson Valley Health System, headquartered in Middletown, N.Y., will be upgrading its existing Omnicell® Automated Medication Dispensing Cabinets to the new XT series automated medication dispensing system across its three facilities. Along with this upgrade, the health system will begin using Omnicell Analytics, a software solution designed to prevent and proactively detect drug diversion. The system will also expand its use of Anywhere RN™ Remote Medication Management Software across all three hospitals. These improvements will help the health system continue its efforts to provide high-quality care. 

The Greater Hudson Valley Health System is comprised of three facilities, Orange Regional Medical Center, Catskill Regional Medical Center-Harris, and Catskill Regional Medical Center-Callicoon. GHVHS has partnered with Omnicell since 2010, utilizing the Company’s automated medication dispensing system to maximize inventory, enhance safety, and increase medication security. In order to further improve hospital workflows and remain current with medication safety technology, GHVHS has made the decision to replace their existing G4 cabinets with Omnicell’s newest technology offering, the XT Automated Medication Dispensing Cabinets.

“We all share in the responsibility to support our superb clinical teams to deliver on the ‘eight rights’ of medication administration,” said Brian Tew, CIO & vice president of Professional Services at the Greater Hudson Valley Health System. “The XT platform will further our goals of improving interoperability and efficiency so that patient-focused care remains central to everything our people do on a daily basis.”

“My team and I decided to upgrade our existing solutions to the XT series because it provides us a safer solution with more capacity, without requiring an entire workflow change to our hospital staff,” said Maria Russo, RPh, MPA, PharmD, director of Pharmacy at Orange Regional Medical Center. “With the new technology, we plan to identify functionalities in the cabinets and software that will benefit our current workflow and work closely with Omnicell to provide additional training and skills to our staff.”

Along with new automated dispensing cabinets, GHVHS is introducing Omnicell Analytics, a drug diversion software solution that flags anomalous medication dispensing activity in real time. GHVHS is also expanding its use of Anywhere RN—a workflow solution that gives nurses the ability to review and select medication orders from virtually any hospital workstation. This solution, which reduces the time nurses need to spend at the dispensing cabinets, has already been implemented at Orange Regional Medical Center, and now will be available at all hospital facilities. These two initiatives further demonstrate GHVHS’ dedication to medication safety.

“The Greater Hudson Valley Health System has continuously demonstrated their commitment to safety and patient welfare by optimizing pharmaceutical care,” said J. Christopher Drew, president of North American Automation and Analytics, Omnicell. “We are excited they chose to install the XT medication dispensing system in all of their facilities as they continue to be a leader in quality care.”
