Omnicell automates the supply reorder process for St Patrick Hospital and Health Sciences Center

Omnicell : 18 July, 2008  (Application Story)
St Patrick Hospital and Health Sciences Center, a 237 bed facility in Missoula, Montana, USA has installed an interface between the hospital's Omnicell OptiFlex CL system and its Philips Series IV physiomonitoring and information system.
'The OptiFlex CL system automates our supply reorder process, giving us greater control and accuracy in ordering to ensure that supplies are always on hand,' said Steve Hartigan, lead cath lab technician at St Patrick Hospital and Health Sciences Center. 'In addition, we benefit from a reduction in manual work that frees our staff to spend more time on patient-specific care.'

St Patrick Hospital and Health Sciences Center has been using the OptiFlex CL system in its cardiac cath labs to facilitate real-time automated supply point-of-use data collection. The powerful OptiFlex CL software seamlessly interfaces with the Philips cath lab monitoring and charting software, further reducing the need for manual key entries and automatically populating its American College of Cardiology database with accurate supply information. The complete integrated system made possible by OptiFlex CL software allows cath lab management staff to evaluate the overall performance of the hospital on cardiac cath lab cases by tracking supplies and procedures to a physician for cost management and automated charge capture.

'Tracking supplies in hospital specialty areas like the cath lab at St Patrick is increasingly tied to Patient safety and clinical processes,' said Robert Mullenger, group product line manager, Omnicell. 'A cath lab manager benefits from the OptiFlex system because it provides one solution to track all supplies accurately, including implants; and provides interfaces to hospital systems that they depend on.'
