South Jersey Healthcare

Overview Challenge Solutions Benefits

South Jersey Healthcare wanted to improve patient care by providing critical data to medical professionals across multiple campuses. To improve efficiency, South Jersey Healthcare replaced manual medication-distribution processes with an automated dispensing system from Omnicell that runs on the Windows Embedded Standard 7 operating system. Because the solution shares information across multiple applications and devices, medical staff have better visibility into patient care and more control of their workflow. By using the automated solution, the pharmacy has cut delivery time for patient medication from two hours to 18 minutes. In addition, South Jersey Healthcare can more easily meet electronic health-record regulatory requirements, improve inventory control and simplify IT management.
