About Omnicell

Join the Journey to Autonomous Pharmacy with Omnicell

The healthcare industry has undergone many changes since Omnicell was founded in 1992 to pioneer automated dispensing systems. Omnicell has responded, and we now offer the broadest set of medication and supply management solutions from the hospital to the home.

Today medication management is at a crossroads.

Here are just a few medication-related challenges the healthcare industry is facing:

Autonomous Pharmacy Automation - Pill Journey
  • $323 billion is being spent on medications across the healthcare continuum   1
  • Drug costs are rising at 10 times the rate of inflation  2
  • Medication nonadherence is estimated to cost over $300 billion a year  3

Meanwhile, nursing and pharmacy staff are stuck performing administrative tasks that keep them away from patient care.

Incremental changes are no longer enough.

Omnicell believes radical change is needed to solve today’s challenges. We are leading a transformation of medication management through our vision of the Autonomous Pharmacy. Our goal is to move pharmacists to the center of patient care where they can practice at the top of their license.

We are already delivering on the Autonomous Pharmacy roadmap.

Today, Omnicell offers a powerful combination of advanced automation, data intelligence, and expert services to better serve patients.  Healthcare providers and pharmacies are replacing manual, error-prone tasks with more accurate, efficient processes through solutions like our advanced robotic systems and our analytics software and services.

Harnessing the power of data intelligence. ­

Automation alone is not enough. We are leveraging the data from automated systems to deliver intelligent insights. For example, with Omnicell Performance Center™ our expert analysts use predictive intelligence to help health systems navigate drug shortages and other challenges.

Rising higher through the cloud.

We’re building out our vision on cloud infrastructure, which enables more nimble innovation and greater digital connectivity across our systems. That means you can spend less time managing equipment and more time focusing on what’s most important—the patient. 

Omnicell has been driving profound change by helping some of the largest healthcare networks to:

  • Dramatically improve patient safety 
  • Remove obstacles to efficiency
  • Lower costs and cut out waste
  • Tighten regulatory compliance
  • Address population health challenges
