Where 2020 marked a year of crisis, 2021 was a year of transformation – and both were driven in large part by the continuing effects of COVID-19. The pandemic brought profound changes to how patients access their healthcare services – the convenient neighborhood pharmacy has become a new epicenter of healthcare. And Omnicell, with our Purpose of providing A Better Way to offer pharmacy services, is core to the evolution of people’s relationship to how they access their trusted healthcare.
The growing digitalization of healthcare services – a long-growing trend that accelerated during the pandemic – has altered virtually every corner of healthcare. With pharmacies playing an ever-greater role in healthcare, we believe Omnicell is perfectly positioned to support pharmacists as they streamline their workflows and endeavor to improve patient health outcomes. Because of, and amidst, these industry-wide and global transformations, Omnicell in 2021 achieved a number of milestones and leveraged significant opportunities. In addition to bringing in record revenues, we completed several acquisitions of like-minded businesses – FDS Amplicare™, ReCept™, and MarkeTouch Media™ that will further assist pharmacies in achieving our shared Vision of the Autonomous Pharmacy, which leads us to A Better Way of providing healthcare access and improving health outcomes in the communities where we live, work, and serve. This Better Way isn’t something we have to do, it’s something we GET to do for the communities we serve. It’s not only a business model for future growth, but it’s Doing the Right Thing to help pharmacists, and pharmacies, provide healthcare to those in need and practice at the top of their license. The dual purpose of Doing Right for others, as well as strategically planning for the future, is a fantastic opportunity for Omnicell.
As we re-open our doors to welcome employees back to the workplace post-Covid-19 surges, we are committed to continuing our legacy of making a difference in our communities through charitable donations and volunteerism. Omnicell has partnered with a giving and volunteering platform that serves as a one-stop shop for Omnicell’s charitable initiatives, allowing us to achieve a global impact on both an organizational and societal level through consolidating efforts, donating funds, company matching, in-kind donations, and volunteering.
In 2022, we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of Omnicell’s founding. Countless exciting changes have taken place since 1992, and we eagerly anticipate the road ahead. Omnicell is forging ahead into a new era of delivering optimal healthcare solutions that are designed to improve outcomes. We hope this inspires others to create A Better Way, together.
Omnicell is in an evolutionary stage, and we think there is no better time for us to embark on Our Better Way to provide products and services to our customers. Our people, our places, and our products have undergone transformative realignment to our Vision of the Autonomous Pharmacy. We are on a path to Design for Excellence, incorporating not just Privacy by Design, but ESG by Design as well, scrutinizing the products we deliver, the materials we use, and the supply chain we rely upon to help facilitate the global objective of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5° Celsius by 2030. Moving data to the cloud is just one step forward, while refreshing our product, go-to-market, customer experience, and platform architecture strategies. With the completion of our first Materiality Assessment in 2021, we are “all in” for being responsible corporate citizens in the world as it relates to our Purpose, Mission, Vision, and Values.
Working with the various teams that have brought this report together is a privilege. It’s not every CEO that characterizes Corporate Responsibility as something “we GET to do,” and not something “we have to do.” Nor his view that by doing more, we are richer for the experience of Doing the Right Thing. But that’s who Randall Lipps is, and how he feels about Our Better Way. Sentiments like these are what make my life’s work easy, and an honor and a privilege to be part of this organization during this exciting time, working among such passionate transformers in the industry. I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!
We are ‘all in’ for being responsible corporate citizens in the world as it relates to our Purpose, Mission, Vision, and Values.

September 9, 2021, we completed the acquisition of FDS Amplicare, a pharmacy technology provider. The FDS Amplicare acquisition adds a comprehensive and complementary suite of SaaS financial management, analytics, and population health solutions to our EnlivenHealth offering.

The addition of ReCept’s specialty pharmacy management services for health systems, provider groups, and federally qualified health centers expands Omnicell’s Advanced Services portfolio in an effort to address the growing and complex specialty pharmacy market.
Our last strategic acquisition for 2021 was the purchase of MarkeTouch Media, a pharmacy software solutions provider, on December 31, 2021. The MarkeTouch Media acquisition adds mobile and web-based technology and patient engagement solutions, which are expected to expand the footprint of EnlivenHealth across the retail pharmacy sector, while enhancing potential growth opportunities in new market segments like specialty pharmacy and pharmacy benefits management.

Through the execution of our strategic plan, we have delivered strong results and created significant value for our shareholders.
As COVID-19 continued to take its toll on the world’s populations, Omnicell continued to support our employees and customers through it all. We maintained our work-from-home mandate for non-essential personnel throughout 2021 and into 2022, implemented additional safety protocols for field and service technicians, while pivoting to address our customers’ most urgent needs on the front lines, including the launch of our CareScheduler application (available through EnlivenHealth), assisting with vaccine scheduling and reporting in retail pharmacies across the United States.
In 2021, we shipped 11,500 N95 masks, 46,000 surgical masks, 26,300 pairs of nitrile gloves, and more than 5,200 fluid ounces of hand sanitizer, as well as lateral flow tests in the EU, to our front-line employees. We continue to monitor the dynamic and rapidly changing nature of the pandemic everywhere we work, and are committed to keeping our people safe while supporting life-saving care for patients around the world. We will sustain this support for our employees and our customers globally until resolution of the pandemic.
