MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Omnicell, Inc. (NASDAQ: OMCL), a leading provider of medication and supply management solutions for healthcare systems, today announced it is exhibiting its leading edge supply chain solutions at the Association for Healthcare Resources & Materials Management (AHRMM) Conference & Exhibition, taking place from August 13-15, 2018 in Chicago.
Manual, disjointed supply and medication management processes are time-consuming, affecting inventory costs and revenue, and ultimately patient safety. As medical supplies account for 30 to 40 percent of a hospital’s total costs,i hospital supply chain leaders need a better, more efficient way to manage these resources–particularly as today’s health systems become more expansive and complex. Omnicell’s automated supply and medication management solutions help to increase materials management efficiency, lower inventory costs, and reduce stock outs that impact patient care.
To further advance discussion about best practices and reporting technology, the company is hosting a reception on Monday, August 13 from 4:00-6:00 p.m. in Booth #213. Rupert Robin, senior director of Research and Development for Omnicell, is leading a discussion on the importance of a unified platform and cloud-enabled reporting for hospitals and health systems. With an extensive background in supply and medication management automation, Mr. Robin will help supply chain leaders understand how to leverage automation to effectively control costs, capture charges for reimbursement, and improve the reporting process.
“Hospitals are constantly looking to improve patient care. Optimizing visibility to the supply chain ultimately helps ensure the right materials are where they should be to provide the best, most efficient care to patients,” said Rupert Robin. “We’ve been listening to our customers and are excited to be focusing on how our latest solutions can help improve their supply processes through innovative, web-based solutions with real-time data.”
