Hospital supplies are often seen as a major source of inefficiency and excess cost, and materials managers are under growing pressure to address these issues. Yet time-consuming manual processes for hospital supply management create barriers to success.
When the bulk of staff time is spent checking par levels and tracking usage in various supply locations, significant focus is on executing manual tasks and managing disparate data. This excludes the filling of last-minute orders from nurses who have run out of an item.
As a leader in supply and medication dispensing automation, Omnicell offers hospital supply management systems that can dramatically streamline your inventory management tasks. With our systems, you not only improve staff efficiency and lower medical supply inventory costs but also increase revenue through improved charge capture and reimbursement.
Recently upgraded with the latest technology, the new G4 console has been designed based on extensive customer feedback to ensure it’s easy and intuitive to use.
Flexible, Modular Configurations
Based on a philosophy of “Choice and Flexibility”, there is an almost endless range of options which can be mixed-and-matched. This includes varying cabinet sizes, format and drawer options with different levels of security. Additional cabinets can be seamlessly integrated as your capacity needs increase.
Lowest Long-Term Cost of Ownership
Modular in their construction, only select parts of the system need to be updated through time. Rather than replacing entire cabinets, you can keep current with the latest technology by replacing only (say) the console. In addition, standard software upgrades are included as part of our industry-leading service program.
