omnicell and pocketnurse

Earlier this year we shared an announcement between Pocket Nurse and Omnicell regarding an educational affiliation to provide real world medication management solutions that fit seamlessly into the nursing education simulation lab and curriculum. The product mix is designed to teach the inventory and safety control measures typically deployed in clinical care environments by utilizing hardware and software solutions built with the latest available technology.

From the Website:

Healthcare simulation education is rapidly moving toward classroom environments that strongly mimic clinical environments – to better train the emerging healthcare workforce and reduce integration time from classroom to clinic.

Pocket Nurse and Omnicell have joined forces to provide real world medication management solutions that fit seamlessly into the nursing education simulation lab and curriculum. The product mix is designed to teach the inventory and safety control measures typically deployed in clinical care environments by utilizing hardware and software solutions built with the latest available technology.

The result of educating with these solutions is increased patient safety, reduced rates of medication errors, and more realistic training scenarios that transfer well into the workforce.

Solutions from this new partnership:

  • Automated Dispensing Cabinets – Automated Dispensing Cabinets provide an excellent way to affordably model the drug cabinet configurations and features used in most healthcare settings. These space-saving modular table-top automated dispensing cabinets have flexible drawer configurations for enhanced scenario creation.
  • Medication Workstations – Savvy Mobile Medication Workstation provides secure transport of medications from the ADC to the point-of-care, creating a critical layer of accountability and addressing ISMP recommendations for safe transport of medications. Nursing students can place all needed patient medications for a medication pass from ADC into patient-assigned locking drawers and then move from bed to bed, instead of returning to the ADC between each patient.
  • Remote Medication Management – Anywhere RN™ creates a flexible medication administration process that positively impacts nursing and patient safety. It is a web-based application that lets nurses remotely perform medication management tasks away from the automated dispensing cabinet (ADC).
