Omnicell to launch innovative new solution at Clinical Pharmacy Congress

Omnicell, a leading provider of medication management solutions and adherence tools for health systems and pharmacies, will unveil its pioneering new MedX solution at the Clinical Pharmacy Congress (23rd-24th September 2021) to be held at ExCeL London.

MedX, the latest addition to Omnicell’s market leading portfolio, is a software solution that manages medication and controlled drug stock, providing one clear view of pharmacy inventory in real time across a hospital, trust or Integrated Care System (ICS).

The easy to use, web-based solution for medication inventory management and reporting provides real time dashboards direct to a mobile phone so it can be viewed anytime, anywhere by clinicians. The solution supports improved patient safety in the event of a product recall with individual batch tracking and frees up clinicians’ time from searching overburdened shelves and managing stock levels, allowing them to focus on face-to-face patient care.

Furthermore, it allows hospitals to manage and glean data for those items that cannot be stored in automated dispensing cabinets.

The MedX system has been designed to achieve Scan4Safety compliance and GS1 standards. An electronic CD register, OmniCD sits within the reporting structure of MedX which will provide users with the reporting tools necessary for storage and monitoring of controlled drugs independently or together with Omnicell's point of care solutions. The OmniCD report captures the movement of controlled drugs from the moment they are added as a stock item to when they are administered.

Furthermore, MedX can manage inventory stored in both open and closed areas, improving audit tracking across the whole hospital. It collates data from Omnicell’s Robotic Dispensing System, automated dispensing cabinets and non-automated areas, displaying the data on a live dashboard.

The system provides a multitude of benefits for staff at all stages of the medication management process, allowing them to spend more time on direct patient care, including:

  • Elimination of nursing time spent on managing and ordering stock
  • Better visibility of when and where funds are being spent
  • Ability to track and cost everything at a patient, procedure and consultant level
  • Reduction of unforeseen stockouts of medication, helping to ensure medication is available when and where it is needed

Edward Platt, Automation Director for Omnicell UK&I said: “We are delighted to be attending the Clinical Pharmacy Congress in person this year and look forward to reconnecting with the clinical pharmacy professional community.

"In addition, we are excited to be using this event to launch the innovative MedX solution to the UK healthcare market. The technology can really bring valuable insights to healthcare partners’ clinical workflows and medication management processes.

"In turn, this improves quality, reduces costs and increases staff efficiency, all of which creates more time for face-to-face patient care. Omnicell is proud to be delivering the future of medication management at such a prestigious and noteworthy event.”

NHE365 Virtual Festival: Digital Healthcare

The integration of new technology, such as using virtual outpatient appointments instead of face-to-face reviews of patients in the hospital. Adapting the ways in which our NHS workers serve people has been critical in continuing to provide high-quality treatment, a positive patient experience and preventing Covid-19 transmission during the pandemic. Our healthcare sector has the potential to transform the way we continue to provide essential services while also improving patient care. But how easy is the integration of these innovations into routine NHS practice?

On the 28th of October, at the NHE365 Virtual Hospitals & Technology Enabled Care online event, we will be discussing patient flow and experience, reducing waiting times, reducing the patient backlog and increasing technology adoption. Will you be attending?
