Omnicell was also awarded with Category Leader for Pharmacy Automation: Medication Carousels for Omnicell's WorkflowRx(TM) Carousel for the third consecutive year.
The "Best in KLAS" award recognizes top-ranked medical equipment companies as rated by healthcare providers, measuring vendor performance in areas such as product quality, implementation and satisfaction. The 2012 Best in KLAS Awards: Medical Equipment& Infrastructure report marks the third consecutive year that Omnicell's OmniRx was awarded "Best in KLAS." Since 2006, KLAS has awarded the top distinction in the automated medication dispensing category to OmniRx.
"KLAS is committed to helping healthcare providers make decisions based on candid peer feedback," said Adam Gale, president of KLAS. "Best in KLAS rankings mark those vendors who best keep their promises in their market segments by offering a combination of superior products, strong service and high customer value. We hope these ratings continue to help providers find transparency from their vendors in making purchasing decisions."
Omnicell's OmniRx is an automated medication dispensing system that helps hospitals address ever-changing healthcare regulations and is designed to increase patient safety and workflow efficiency. In the KLAS "Buy Again" category, 93 percent of hospital executives indicated that they would purchase Omnicell's medication dispensing cabinets again.
Omnicell's WorkflowRx Carousel is designed to increase productivity and reduce costs in the central pharmacy to provide greater control and tracking of medications, improved dispensing accuracy and dynamic reordering of all pharmacy stock. The WorkflowRx Carousel received the highest overall score among medication carousels for satisfaction with product uptime.
According to a customer surveyed recently by KLAS, "I am amazed at Omnicell's commitment to continually improve their products. They are always checking in with us and making sure that everything is running smoothly. Omnicell's phone and web support are very knowledgeable, and their field support techs are even better. I never worry because I know the techs are well trained and qualified to handle any situation."*
"For the seventh consecutive year, we are honored to be recognized as the KLAS leader for our automated medication dispensing systems," said Marga Ortigas-Wedekind, Omnicell executive vice president, global marketing and product development. "We are also delighted that our WorkflowRx Carousel continues to be recognized for the positive impact it is having on our hospital pharmacy customers. This recognition underscores our ongoing commitment to help healthcare organizations improve patient care and outcomes while lowering costs."
In addition to Omnicell's awards from the 2012 Medical Equipment report, Omnicell's OmniLinkRx® received the Category Leader distinction for Medication Order Management Systems for three consecutive years from 2009 to 2011 in the Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Services reports, which are published in December each year.
