Promotional Theater 1

Pharmacy Success Starts with Data Intelligence

Sunday, December 6, 2020
10:00–11:00 AM PT | 1:00–2:00 PM ET

The pharmacist’s value to healthcare can’t be underestimated. Yet these highly trained professionals are spending 75 percent of their time on non-clinical, often manual tasks. The time has come for these critical members of the clinical team to embrace technology and shift focus to what’s most important: patient care.

Join Omnicell VP of Product Management, Jim Garretson, and Omnicell VP of Engineering, Michael Korthuis, as they discuss the power and potential of the Autonomous Pharmacy.

By leveraging data-driven technologies, pharmacy can shift once and for all from inefficient, error-prone, manual processes to intelligent automation that protects patients and empowers practitioners. Data intelligence is revolutionizing the industry by:

  • Supporting safety by reducing medication errors caused by humans
  • Driving financial success by reducing waste and shortages, reallocating resources, and lowering compliance costs
  • Boosting efficiency by enabling 100% time spent on clinical activity
  • Improving compliance by providing an efficient way to track
  • Empowering practitioners and improving the pharmacist/nurse relationship
