New Interoperability Is Designed to Streamline Clinical Workflow

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Omnicell, Inc.

In addition, Omnicell and Hospira announced that the two companies are collaborating to further system interoperability, with the goal of delivering the greatest possible value to the hundreds of hospitals that utilize Omnicell's medication management solutions and Hospira's infusion technologies.

"This initial step in integrating Hospira MedNet Safety Software and the Omnicell Performance Center is an important advancement toward greater interoperability between two innovative technologies," said Julie Sawyer Montgomery, president, Hospira Infusion Systems. "We are excited to be collaborating with Omnicell towards interoperability opportunities to support healthcare organizations seeking measurable improvement in clinician workflow, patient satisfaction and medication management."
