MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.

Omnicell, Inc. (NASDAQ: OMCL), a leading provider of medication and supply management automation, analytics software, and medication adherence solutions for healthcare organizations, today announced that Sentara RMH Medical Center, part of Sentara Healthcare in Virginia and northeastern North Carolina, has chosen to enhance control, efficiency and safety of its medication management processes with Omnicell’s newest central pharmacy automation, part of the company’s industry-leading platform.

 Recognized for being on the leading edge of employing the latest technologies to continually improve patient care, Sentara RMH will leverage Omnicell’s XR2 Automated Central Pharmacy System to help increase pharmacy efficiency, improve medication costs, and free up staff for more clinically-focused activities.

 “As we look to streamline our pharmacy operations, XR2 provides the ability to downsize our equipment needs, while increasing productivity for our pharmacy staff,” said Jamin C. Engel, Pharmacy Manager, Sentara RMH Medical Center. “XR2 also supports efficiency on the patient floor.  We’re able to place medications in patient rooms, allowing nurses to maximize their time with patients by locating medications more quickly and efficiently.”

The XR2 system is designed to meet the unique and evolving needs of pharmacy operations through scalable technology that automates and streamlines critical workflows for storing, managing, and dispensing patient medications. The system uses robotic technology to eliminate numerous manual tasks, freeing up time for more value-added work.

“As technology and digital health continue to evolve, it is important to work with partners like Sentara to build solutions that not only support safety and efficiency in clinical care, but also improve job satisfaction,” said Nhat H. Ngo, executive vice president, Marketing, Strategy and Business Development at Omnicell.
