The University awarded a contract for automated medication and supply cabinet system .
Omnicell is an automated medication and supply cabinet system that enables remote dispensing of needed medications at point of care.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical services necessary for the delivery of care and treatment at medical, dental, or veterinary teaching facilities utilized by SIU or U of I (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) Omnicell dispense controlled substances. It creates a safer and simpler medication process in our clinical environment. This allows our clinicians to spend less time managing medications and more time caring for patients.
