Omnicare recently announced the launch of a new application for controlled substances. Prescribers — including physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants — can electronically transmit orders for controlled substance prescriptions as well as other medications in real-time directly to Omnicare pharmacies. The new technology speeds up the time it takes for patients to receive medication.

“We are excited about this new OmniviewDr capability, which is consistent with our goal to develop and implement innovative technologies that improve the quality of care and create efficiencies for our customers, the physician community and for Omnicare,” said Jeff Stamps, executive vice-president and president, long-term care operations.
