Omnicell Limited enters into Distributorship Agreement with Hanmi Pharmaceutical for the United Kingdom market

Non-Exclusive distribution agreement for dispensing and packaging automation solution supports the industry vision of the Autonomous Pharmacy and expands Omnicell’s Retail Pharmacy Portfolio in the UK

31 March, 2022 - Omnicell, Inc. (NASDAQ:OMCL) (“Omnicell”), a leading provider of medication management solutions and adherence tools for health systems and pharmacies, today announced Omnicell Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Omnicell has entered into an agreement with Hanmi Pharm. Co., Ltd (“Hanmi Pharmaceutical”), to distribute JVM medication dispensing and packaging automation solutions in the United Kingdom (“UK”).

The agreement will build on Omnicell’s current retail pharmacy portfolio of solutions, providing pharmacy owners with a wider range of options for medication adherence blister and pouch packing - which are designed to ensure patients receive the right medication and dose, at the right time.

Across the UK there is increasing pressure on pharmacies to deliver additional services, while still maintaining their prescription and medication adherence services.  This agreement is expected to expand Omnicell’s automated medication adherence portfolio, while providing more choice to meet different needs.

“We think the JVM range of products provides an exceptional new offering for a variety of budgets across the retail pharmacy market, which, in our view, further demonstrates Omnicell’s commitment to understanding and meeting the needs of our clients,” said Sara Dalmasso, general manager and vice president of Omnicell’s international business.

Sara explained, “The last 18-24 months have placed immense pressure on the retail pharmacy sector and we believe this is another step in helping to make the day-to-day working lives of pharmacists easier and more efficient, which should ultimately free up their valuable time to focus more on face-to-face patient interaction and care.”

"Our JVM solution, which is optimized for retail pharmacies, is designed to help pharmacists deliver an enhanced prescribing process and to focus on patient care. We are thrilled to establish a partnership with Omnicell, which has strong expertise in the field of pharmacy automation solutions, to enhance the quality of medication care and to help UK pharmacists." said Mina Son, the director of JVM Global Business at Hanmi Pharmaceutical.

Differentiated Portfolio of Solutions: This agreement is expected to provide new solutions that complement Omnicell’s widely deployed retail pharmacy solutions in the UK, including a pack-pick dispensing robot, automated MDS filling machine, eMAR solution, as well as medication adherence consumables, all of which are designed to help improve medication adherence and health outcomes, while driving pharmacy business results.


Medication dispensing and packaging automation benefits: The JVM solution can automatically sort, distribute and package medications based on customised specifications and removes the need for retail pharmacies to manually handle adherence packaging, which is expected to save time, enabling pharmacists to focus on patient care and developing new revenue-generating healthcare services. Omnicell now offers entry-level solutions for pharmacists with space confinements, to high-volume solutions for pharmacies with greater demand.
