November 30, 2017 – Wolters Kluwer Health today announced a partnership with Omnicell, Inc. to distribute Omnicell’s IVX Workflow system, which integrates with Wolters Kluwer’s market-leading Simplifi 797®. The partnership enables customers to easily acquire and deploy integrated automation and quality tools together to improve accuracy, enhance safety and facilitate compliance with IV compounding best practices.
“Today’s healthcare organizations face unprecedented pressure to achieve a higher standard of sterile compounding practice and are seeking a comprehensive approach to quality and compliance,” said David A. Del Toro, President and CEO of Clinical Software Solutions at Wolters Kluwer. “We are pleased to integrate Simplifi 797 with Omnicell’s next-generation workflow technology and distribute these together as one solution to ensure sterile compounding environments have all the best practice tools and resources needed to meet USP <797> and USP <800> compliance standards, elevate staff competencies and keep patients safe.”
Pharmacists use the integrated IVX Workflow system to customize and design risk-based IV workflows for different compounding applications and remain fully compliant with USP <797> and USP <800>. This enhances compounding workflows by equipping pharmacists with integrated barcode scanning, gravimetric or volumetric verifications, advanced image recognition, photo documentation and label printing—all within a single compact package designed for easy placement within laminar airflow hoods or isolators.
“The integration with Simplifi 797 further elevates safety and compliance by providing the expert content needed to align with complex USP guidelines, including risk management and quality assurance practices, comprehensive policies and procedures, staff training and evaluations and robust reporting,” said Rob Seim, President of Global Automation and Medication Adherence at Omnicell, Inc. “We are thrilled to have our new IV workflow solution integrated with this market-leading quality management and compliance software.”
Wolters Kluwer will demonstrate the integrated IVX Workflow system in Booth #1633 at the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Midyear Clinical Meeting and Exhibition, taking place December 2-7 in Orlando. For more information, click here.
