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.
South Jersey Healthcare, a nonprofit healthcare system with approximately 3,000 employees including 800 nurses, performs more than 500,000 quality healthcare treatments and services annually, and sought to elevate patient care and increase revenue by automating its medication distribution process.
South Jersey Healthcare implemented an automated medication dispensary that handles more than 700,000 doses per month and providing easier access to information in multiple systems—pharmaceutical inventory, medical records and billing—by deploying a solution built on Windows Embedded Standard, Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft .NET Framework.
South Jersey Healthcare's automated medication dispensary cuts medication-distribution time by 85 percent, from two hours to 18 minutes, and reduced medication inventory from $505,000 to $350,000. Its improved regulatory compliance provided $2 million in funding. The powerful new system allows software updates to be made in 30 minutes or less.
