Omnicell unveils G4 Unity platform
Dec 17, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Omnicell, Inc., a provider of medication and supply management solutions and analytics software for healthcare facilities, has announced the availability of G4 Unity platform.
According to the company, the G4 Unity platform features a single, shared medication database that connects all G4 Unity solutions to enable complete medication and supply tracking from the controlled substance vault to medication and supply cabinets, the OR and to the bedside. The unified database also helps to eliminate redundant data entry that can lead to errors.
The platform is powered by the enterprise-class OmniCenter server, which centrally manages Omnicell medication and supply dispensing systems and stores up to seven years of data, enabling quick retrieval and analysis of extended historical information.
The ability to store seven years of data is a critical and growing compliance factor in several US states. G4 Unity solutions leverage robust software, computing power and hardware from Microsoft, Intel and Dell, the company said.
The G4 Unity platform offers capabilities that enhance the user experience, and provides a foundation for ongoing innovations to keep pace with changing regulatory and workflow requirements.
In addition, the G4 Unity solutions allow hospitals to connect to electronic health records and other healthcare information systems to improve functionality and simplify system administration, the company added.
With the new software release, Omnicell has also enhanced the existing medication and supply dispensing technology for the long-term non-acute care market by adding the ability to support multiple time zones from a single server. This allows users such as institutional pharmacies to streamline operations, reduce costs and simplify reporting.
"Omnicell has a long history of delivering meaningful innovations. In the past 20 years, we have provided our customers with 17 major system upgrades," said Marga Ortigas-Wedekind, Omnicell vice president, global marketing and product development.
"Our new G4 Unity platform delivers a host of benefits that optimize clinicians' time and help ensure a consistent experience across all Omnicell Unity Products. For example, the G4 Unity platform's single medication database streamlines data entry, minimizes system maintenance and IT involvement, and centralizes updates to patient information. Omnicell is committed to providing ongoing product enhancements that allow our customers to improve the standard of care."
