Integrated Enterprise Platform
Omnicell introduces the Unity 19.5 enterprise platform. The new release features two advancements to help streamline medication administration for nursing and improve patient safety in the OR. The new integration between Omnicell’s automated dispensing cabinets and electronic health records (EHRs) allows nurses to save time by remotely managing medications directly from the EHR. The 19.5 release also features integration with the Omnicell anesthesia workstation and the Codonics Safe Label System, which helps streamline workflow in the OR and prevent medication errors, thus improving safety and compliance.

Tracking Software for Medication Delivery
By using Track & Trace solutions from Swisslog, material transport and medication management automation integrates to create complete visibility of medication delivery. The process starts with MedPortal Inventory Management Software—new medications are scanned into inventory and securely stored in the automated pharmacy storage system. When a patient order arrives, medication is scanned out of pharmacy storage and scanned into the TransLogic Pneumatic Tube System for transport. The Track & Trace solution then documents that the medication has arrived at its destination. Bedside scanning closes the tracking loop before administration to the patient. By identifying where medications are in the delivery process, Track & Trace helps to improve efficiency and ensure timely medication delivery.

IV Automation Analytics
Aesynt launches REINVENT, a registry that provides health care organizations with IV automation analytics through aggregated compounded sterile preparation data. The Registry for Intravenous Technology in Pharmacy (REINVENT) is a global, multisite data registry aimed at collecting compounded sterile preparation data from hospitals and health systems for evaluation, analysis, and insight. By leveraging the aggregated data collected from Aesynt’s i.v.STATION, registry participants can analyze current industry trends and benchmark measures for process improvement. This capability helps these organizations improve operational efficiencies and safety for both employees and patients, while also supporting cost reductions. REINVENT data, which is stripped of site identification and is HIPAA-compliant, will be available to i.v.STATION customers who have opted into the registry.
