LG CNS Announces EHR Interoperability With Omnicare

GEORGETOWN, Texas, Nov. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Collain Healthcare, an LG CNS Company, in coordination with Omnicare, Inc., the leading long term care pharmacy services provider, now delivers interoperability between LG CNS EHR and Omnicare's OmniDX dispensing system using the NCPDP SCRIPT 10.6 format. This interoperability enables LG CNS customers to further reduce medication administration errors and streamline medication order entry by providing a direct link to Omnicare pharmacies, improving operational efficiency, enhanced accuracy and outcomes. This new integration was implemented by the November 1 transition to the new standard and was made possible by LG CNS' decades of experience in large-scale, complex healthcare technology integrations and commitment to deliver highly configurable, rapidly deployable and massively scalable systems for long term post-acute care customers.

The upgrade for LG CNS EHR customers from the previous HL7-based interface with Omnicare was seamless. "The LG CNS team worked behind the scenes and made the transition smooth and easy," reported Penny Marshall, Clinical Director of Information Technology, StoneGate Senior Living. "All 30 of our buildings were up and running in just two weeks," Marshall added.

Collain Healthcare CEO Dr. Maryann Choi commented, "We are committed to delivering a holistic and comprehensive platform for all long-term and post-acute care providers in the modern healthcare environment which includes critical integrations, standards adoption and compliance. As a physician and health policy advocate, I am proud that we continue to deliver on this promise to our providers and most importantly, for our patients."
