Based in West Burlington, Iowa, Great River Health Systems includes a network of specialty and primary-care clinics, retail pharmacies, and retail medical equipment and supplies services. To enhance patient care and workflow, Great River wanted a better solution for medication management. Great River sought to improve patient care without having to hire new employees. To improve efficiency, the hospital wanted an intelligent system that would automate medication distribution and management. Omnicell and Great River believed that a solution based on a Microsoft platform that included Windows Embedded would provide the reliability, security, and flexibility needed to connect medication-dispensing equipment. By managing and distributing medication with an intelligent system, Great River Medical Center is saving time, enhancing patient care, and cutting personnel and inventory costs significantly.
