Technology, Intelligence, and Expert Services Showcased in Booth #2071 Designed to Address Rising Medication Management Costs

Omnicell, Inc., (NASDAQ: OMCL), a leading provider of medication management solutions and adherence tools for healthcare systems and pharmacies, will be showcasing the industry’s most comprehensive and customizable platform of medication management solutions at the HIMSS19 Conference & Exhibition, taking place February 11-15 in Orlando, FL. The Company’s industry-leading medication management platform leverages automation, predictive intelligence, and expert services to help improve patient safety, simplify workflows, and decrease costs across health systems. Omnicell will also showcase the Autonomous Pharmacy vision, a roadmap designed to develop a zero error, fully automated medication management infrastructure.

According to the 2019 Healthcare IT Demand Survey from Damo Consulting, digital, advanced analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI) are top spending priorities for healthcare executives in 2019.1 With $450 billion spent on medication management annually,2 maximizing technology investments, and real-time, cloud-based reporting, analytics, and benchmarking can help drive more strategic decision making for improved business and clinical outcomes.

“As health systems look to make the most of their existing resources, Omnicell has made a significant commitment to developing a fully digitized, autonomous approach to medication management,” said Nhat H. Ngo, executive vice president, marketing, strategy, and business development at Omnicell. “We’re excited to be at HIMSS19 to showcase how we are working with healthcare providers to reduce human error and allow them to maximize their resources to help positively impact patient outcomes.”

Autonomous Pharmacy
Today’s pharmacy care delivery system is driven by outdated workflows and manual processes – with pharmacists spending 76 percent of their time on non-clinical activities according to a recent American Society of Health-system Pharmacists national survey.3 The vision for Autonomous Pharmacy integrates a comprehensive set of solutions powered by the Omnicell Cloud Data Platform across three key areas: Automation solutions designed to digitize and streamline workflows; Intelligence that provides actionable insights to better understand medication usage and improve pharmacy supply chain management; and automation of medication dispensing Workflows, which includes expert services that serve as an extension of pharmacy operations to support improved efficiency, regulatory compliance, and patient outcomes.

The foundation of Omnicell’s Autonomous Pharmacy vision is a cloud data platform, where every medication is considered a unique node on the network. Tracking each dose through every stage of the hospital, from central pharmacy through patient delivery, the platform will power Omnicell’s complete medication management portfolio, providing actionable intelligence that supports higher availability, improved security, increased computing power and a better experience overall.

Omnicell will showcase select products from the Company’s current portfolio and its vision for the fully digitized autonomous pharmacy in Booth #2071, including:

In the central pharmacy, Omnicell’s innovative automation solutions are designed to digitize and streamline workflows across the continuum of care. For example, IVX Workflow sterile compounding solution supports best practices in aseptic technique by providing step-by-step guidance for preparing IV doses according to set protocols – safely, accurately, and repeatedly. IVX Workflow is part of Omnicell’s full suite of IV automation solutions that support insourced sterile compounding. Insourcing IV compounding can provide up to a 66% reduction in costs, based on ROI modeling.

On patient floors, Omnicell’s XT Series Automated Dispensing Cabinets help improve workflow efficiency, medication accountability, and patient safety through the latest hardware technology and smart software features including interoperability with EHR systems. Omnicell’s automated dispensing cabinets recently received the Best in KLAS ranking for the 13th consecutive year.4

Omnicell’s software solutions along with expert services serve as an extension of pharmacy operations to support improved efficiency, regulatory compliance, and patient outcomes. For example, Performance CenterTM helps improve business and patient outcomes by combining cloud-based predictive intelligence with ongoing services that help optimize medication inventory, proactively manage medications shortages and expiration risk, and reduce overall medication expense. Customers have saved two to three percent of annual drug spend on average through Performance Center.

For health systems managing potential drug diversion, Omnicell Analytics software reduces the time needed to audit clinician transactions at the automated dispensing cabinets and helps facilitate documentation of suspected diversion.

XR2 as a Service combines the groundbreaking technology of Omnicell’s XR2 Automated Central Pharmacy System with dedicated resources to support a more comprehensive approach to managing pharmacy medication inventory. Designed to scale with organizational growth, XR2 maximizes the return on pharmacy investment, reducing administrative burden and allowing pharmacy leadership to focus on clinical care.

These innovative solutions, which complement integrated technologies in central pharmacy, clinician workflow, and medication adherence automation, support the Company’s Autonomous Pharmacy vision.

Decades of research, laboratory curiosities, and world-changing effect notes are starting to be implemented worldwide and the age of quantum is here.

Whenever we are talking about the atomic clock (which already 69 years old) or supercomputers, everything in the natural world can be described by quantum mechanics.

Although, the theory was born a century ago, what is notable about the effort now is that the challenges are no longer scientific but have become matters of engineering. A new industry is born and the future definitely looks exciting as the quantum industry covers far more than just quantum computing. Quantum technology harnesses the strange behavior of tiny particles for a whole range of applications, including navigation tools, enhanced imaging technology, and extremely precise timing devices.

Quantum techniques can also be used to improve the efficiency and capacity of communication channels on a global scale and the method used is Photonics.

The method is focused on the use of light particles, photons, to transmit or carry information. This has been proved to be a less resource-intensive process, since photons are more accessible than other sources of energy, and fiber cables weigh around 40 times less than cables currently used for telephone lines and broadband internet.

During the inaugural PICANTE Tech Conference Europe, we are bringing together industry leaders, scientist and will discuss (among other topics) the investment opportunities in Quantum Technology and Nanotech.

The panel discussion which is titled “Discussions and Investment Opportunities in Quantum Technology and Nanotech” will be joined by Dr. André Xuereb, Professor of Atomic and Quantum Physics at the University of Malta.

About Dr. André Xuereb

André Xuereb is physicist from Malta. He read for an undergraduate degree in mathematics and physics at the University of Malta, a Ph.D. in theoretical physics at the University of Southampton in the UK, and a master degree in entrepreneurship at the University of Malta. He is a professor of atomic and quantum physics at the University of Malta, is Science Policy Officer of the Malta Chamber of Scientists, represents Malta on several European research networks, and was recently elected as the first Maltese member of the Global Young Academy. André has an active career in science, having established and leading the quantum research group at the University of Malta, and co-owns an educational software startup.

PICANTE Tech Conference Europe is designed to bring both people and knowledge together and provides the excellent ecosystem of networking and learning opportunities without interruptions with emphasis on comfort and communication. After learning from genuine world-class experts and wayseers, meeting achievers shaping the B2B ecosystem, all attendees will get the chance to grab a drink and relax while networking at the evening social gathering.

This year’s program attracted more than 3,500 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.

“It’s an honor for Elekta to win this prestigious award,” said Richard Hausmann, Elekta’s President and CEO. “The Unity system’s breakthrough technology demonstrates our leadership in precision radiation medicine and commitment to the needs of the patient and cancer care team delivering treatment.”

Robert Woolston, Managing Director at DCA Design International, Elekta’s design partner for the MR-linac system, commented, “Congratulations to all involved in the development of Elekta Unity. We are delighted to see this system winning award after award and most importantly to see it improving cancer patients’ radiotherapy experience and outcomes, as it ushers in a transformation in precision and personalized cancer treatment.”

Through Elekta Unity’s integrated and responsive software, tumors and surrounding tissue can be precisely located, their movement tracked, and treatment adapted in real time based on live information. This allows treatment plans to be adapted while the patient is on the table in response to changes in tumor position, shape, biology and the relationship to sensitive organs over time.
