New software service optimises inventories of medication and medical supplies

Omnicell : 11 June, 2008  (New Product)
Omnicell has introduced its Executive Advisor Software Service, which is a tool is designed to help healthcare facilities maximise operational efficiency and decrease the cost of carrying excess inventory of medication and medical supplies.
Available in a single, low monthly subscription fee, Executive Advisor Software Service provides healthcare facilities with a snapshot of operational metrics generated from Omnicell automation systems along with recommendations delivered directly to the desktop.

'At The MED, the Omnicell Executive Advisor Software Service allows us to save time by streamlining the tedious task of data collection, analysis and formatting,' said Kay Ryan, director of Pharmacy, The Regional Medical Center at Memphis (The MED). 'We are also saving costs by optimising our supply inventory. By continually improving our processes, we can take full advantage of our Omnicell automation systems and focus on patient safety.'

Executive Advisor Software Service automatically analyses data from existing distributed Omnicell medication and supply automation systems and presents it in a graphical summary format with drill-down capability to the cabinet, user, or item level. In addition to the prioritised list of recommendations and suggestions, trended profile reports of operational and financial metrics are delivered to provide significant productivity benefits to facility staff. All reports are ordered in a ‘worst-first’ model - providing clinical and operations resources with tasks that are already prioritized in order of maximum impact first.

The Executive Advisor Software Service seamlessly integrates with distributed Omnicell medication and supply systems, without the need for any special IT resources, personnel, additional software or hardware. Ongoing maintenance and upgrades are included in the monthly subscription fee.

'We created the Executive Advisor Software Service after listening to our customers tell us that they just didn't have the time to process all of the valuable data from their automation systems,' said Karl Folk, senior director of Omnicell Professional Services. 'This service was designed by a group of Omnicell professionals with years of experience in nursing, pharmacy management and hospital administration who are experts at optimising medication management and supply systems and processes. While all decisions regarding the recommendations and metrics provided by Executive Advisor are for the subscribers to make, this service can help users achieve positive results with a significant return on investment without having to invest substantial additional time or effort.'
