Omnicell Inc. announced the company’s first fully automated multimed packing system to assist pharmacists in improving their patients’ medication adherence. The Omnicell M5000 is designed to automatically pack, seal, verify, and label multimed blister cards for institutional pharmacies serving long-term care facilities, retail pharmacies, and hospital pharmacies serving ambulatory and discharged patients.

The M5000 multimed blister packaging system is designed to support pharmacies’ efforts to help patients stay true to physician-prescribed medication regimens and to increase pharmacy profitability by improving practice workflow efficiencies and strengthening customer refill loyalty.

Going beyond the common practice of patients self-organizing their medications into pillboxes, the Omnicell M5000 system creates personalized adherence blister cards to simplify the medication consumption process. Beyond improving patient confidence and compliance, personalized adherence packaging gives pharmacists the ability to attract and retain new patients.

Omnicell is recognized as a leading provider of comprehensive, technologically advanced automation that enables health care facilities to acquire, manage, dispense, and deliver medications and supplies more effectively.
