Omnicell Extends Operational Efficiency in Healthcare Facilities With Executive Advisor Software Service

Single, low subscription fee service with no special IT resources or personnel required can help generate significant return on

SEATTLE, June 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ASHP 2008 Summer Meeting and Exhibition -- Omnicell, Inc., a leading provider of system solutions to acute healthcare facilities, today introduced its Executive Advisor Software Service. This powerful comprehensive tool is designed to help healthcare facilities maximize operational efficiency and decrease the cost of carrying excess inventory of medication and medical supplies. Available in a single, low monthly subscription fee, Executive Advisor Software Service provides healthcare facilities with a snapshot of operational metrics generated from Omnicell automation systems along with recommendations delivered directly to the desktop.

"At The MED, the Omnicell Executive Advisor Software Service allows us to save time by streamlining the tedious task of data collection, analysis and formatting," said Kay Ryan, director of Pharmacy, The Regional Medical Center at Memphis (The MED). "We are also saving costs by optimizing our supply inventory. By continually improving our processes, we can take full advantage of our Omnicell automation systems and focus on patient safety."

Executive Advisor Software Service automatically analyzes data from existing distributed Omnicell medication and supply automation systems and presents it in a graphical summary format with drill-down capability to the cabinet, user, or item level. In addition to the prioritized list of recommendations and suggestions, trended profile reports of operational and financial metrics are delivered to provide significant productivity benefits to facility staff. All reports are ordered in a "worst-first" model -- providing clinical and operations resources with tasks that are already prioritized in order of maximum impact first. The Executive Advisor Software Service seamlessly integrates with distributed Omnicell medication and supply systems, without the need for any special IT resources, personnel, additional software or hardware. Ongoing maintenance and upgrades are included in the monthly subscription fee.

"We created the Executive Advisor Software Service after listening to our customers tell us that they just didn't have the time to process all of the valuable data from their automation systems," said Karl Folk, senior director of Omnicell Professional Services. "This service was designed by a group of Omnicell professionals with years of experience in nursing, pharmacy management and hospital administration who are experts at optimizing medication management and supply systems and processes. While all decisions regarding the recommendations and metrics provided by Executive Advisor are for the subscribers to make, this service can help users achieve positive results with a significant return on investment without having to invest substantial additional time or effort."

For a complete demonstration of Omnicell Executive Advisor Software Services, please visit Omnicell booth #420 at the ASHP 2008 Summer Meeting and Exhibition, Washington State Convention and Trade Center, Seattle, June 8-11.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
