B Braun announces collab deal with Omnicell


b-braun-omnicell-1x1B. Braun said this week it inked a collaborative deal with Omnicell to help decrease the time and clinical support necessary to manage IV infusions and IV compounding.

Through the deal, Omnicell will be able to use B. Braun’s DoseTrac infusion management software through a hyperlink in Omnicell’s performance center, the companies said.

The software integration will aid pharmacies in IV preparation and eliminate the need for manual compilation of IV pump data, B. Braun said.

“Adding a link in the Performance Center to DoseTrac Infusion Management Software is the first step of integration with Omnicell. Our broader goal is to share real-time infusion data to enhance clinician workflows, and improve patient safety and care,” B. Braun automation and infusion systems marketing VP Mike Golebiowski said in a press release.

The companies said they will also collaborate to reduce workflow redundancies in IV compounding through the use of B. Brauns’ Apex compounding system and Omnicell’s SoftAssist semi-automated IV compounding tech.

“Healthcare providers are making extraordinary efforts to improve cross-departmental workflows. Our goal in working with B. Braun is to integrate and streamline information to help reduce redundancies and enable our customers to focus on clinical care,” Omnicell strategy & biz dev exec VP Nhat Ngo said in a prepared statement.
