Virtustream, an enterprise-class cloud company and a Dell Technologies business, announced today that OmniSYS, a Dallas-based healthcare technology company, is using Virtustream Enterprise Cloud and xStreamCare Services™ to ensure its software solutions for pharmacies across the U.S. provide high-availability and can easily and quickly scale to meet the rising demands of managing the distribution and dispensing of the nation’s massive Covid-19 vaccination efforts.
OmniSYS Supports Half of the Retail Pharmacies in the United States
Over the past decade, the role of the community pharmacist has evolved from solely dispensing medications to also providing basic clinical and preventative care services such as, immunizations, point-of-care testing and counseling for chronic conditions like diabetes. With more than 60,000 retail locations nationwide, pharmacies provide communities with convenient access to affordable and quality care. OmniSYS, a leading provider of technology solutions for retail pharmacy, supports medical claims processing for over half the pharmacies in the nation today. This includes the billing of immunizations and point of care testing for COVID-19. When the pandemic hit, demand for immunizations and point-of-care testing skyrocketed and local pharmacies stepped up to address the need; as did OmniSYS, who quickly and easily scaled its IT capacity to support record-setting claim volumes.
Critical to OmniSYS’ business model is the ability to quickly align and scale its processing requirements with market changes brought about by seasonal illnesses, such as the flu, and historic events like the COVID-19 pandemic. With the company experiencing unprecedented demands on its software as a result of both the COVID-19 vaccine and the increased volume of other clinical services in the pharmacy setting, the firm looked to its trusted IT partners for expanded support.
“OmniSYS plays a critical role in the delivery of health care. It’s imperative that our systems experience zero downtime and that they can scale with growing demand. We look to valued partners like Virtustream to ensure that our systems are highly available and that we can quickly scale our IT capacity to meet record-setting demands,” says John King, Chief Executive Officer, OmniSYS. “As the vaccine rollout ramps-up in 2021, the transactional immunization claim volumes on our software is expected to hit even higher milestones. We’re relying on Virtustream as our trusted cloud partner to ensure that we’ll continue to meet the critical needs of our pharmacy customers, and seamlessly adapt with speed and agility in responding to the peak demands of the market.”
“For a decade, Virtustream has built its reputation on managing mission-critical workloads in the cloud,” says Todd Pavone, President & CEO, Virtustream. “In the world of healthcare, the requirements and complexities of our customers only get tougher. And those challenges extend not only to health systems migrating and managing Epic EHR applications in the cloud, but also enterprises like OmniSYS who is providing solutions for its retail pharmacy customers.
