Overview

Improve Medication Management Through Your EHR

Enjoy direct integration between our medication dispensing system and the Cerner Millennium®  electronic health record (EHR) system. Omnicell improves the way you manage medications.

The Cerner interoperability removes redundant steps from  nursing workflow. This frees up time for patient care and  increasing medication safety.

Our integration solutions with Cerner products include:

Remote Medication Queuing  

Allows clinicians to preselect medications, view availability, and document waste from the EHR. All these are functions that previously needed to be done at the cabinet.

Closed Loop Dose Accountability 

Automatically identifies variances between medications dispensed from the cabinet versus medications documented as administered and/or wasted. This saves time for pharmacy and nursing.

Features

Closed Loop Dose Accountability

Automatically compares medications dispensed and/or wasted from the cabinet versus those documented as administered in the Cerner EHR system. This provides:

  • Increased vigilance of controlled substances
  • Reduced time spent tracking variances

An end of shift report identifies outstanding waste for nursing.

Remote Medication Queuing

Allows clinicians to perform many functions within the Cerner system. This is opposed to them doing so at the automated dispensing cabinet. No separate Omnicell login is required, and the process for removing medications is streamlined.

From the Omnicell mPage in Cerner PowerChart ® nurses can:

  • Preselect medications to be removed from the Omnicell ® Automated Dispensing Cabinet
  • Check availability of medications in real time
  • Document waste

This functionality helps to reduce errors and streamlines medication administration activities. As a result, nurses can spend more time on patient care.

Plug-and-Play Connection 

Direct connection to Cerner EHR system via the Cerner CareAware iBus™, which provides plug-and-play bidirectional communication. Compared with using standard HL7 interfaces, this connection enables:

  • Improved clinical data exchange
  • Faster implementation and reduced testing
  • Reduced system maintenance
