Greenville Hospital System, a non-profit academic health organization with affiliations to the Medical University of South Carolina and University of South Carolina Medical School, has chosen Omnicell’s OmniRx pharmacy cabinets technology to manage its medication-use process.
Omnicell’s medication dispensing systems automate the management and dispensing of medications at the point of use, which can help increase patient safety, improve workflow efficiency, and enhance security.
The integrated biometric, positive-ID system, touch-screen software, magnetic card readers, and guiding light technology help caregivers access medications quickly and easily. Meanwhile, patient medication profiling, bar code scanning, and complete inventory management tools help ensure patient safety and improve the efficiency of pharmacy staff.
Greenville Hospital System (GHS) hospitals moving to OmniRx technology include the 746-bed Greenville Memorial Hospital tertiary referral and academic center. The hospital system has a total of 1,146 beds.
Greenville Hospital System is a long-time Omnicell customer, and already uses the OptiFlex system to manage materials and supplies throughout the health system.
After the success of Omnicell’s OptiFlex materials management technology in helping revamp the way we store and manage supplies for Greenville hospitals, our pharmacy team selected Omnicell cabinets to automate the medication-use process, explained John Mateka, executive director of materials management for GHS.
