PEPID Releases Its Medical Application For The Palm Pre

New software is the first medical app of its kind for the smart phone.

PEPID, the leading developer of clinical decision-support information and technology for doctors and nurses, announced today the release of its Palm Pre application, making PEPID the original developer of point-of-care medical applications for the device and Web OS operating system.

“We are committed to making PEPID available for every device and operating system on the market,” said John Wagner, President. “As physicians and nurses upgrade to the latest smart phones such as the Palm Pre, they can count on having access PEPID’s award-winning content and tools.”

PEPID’s reputable clinical and pharmacological content is designed to support clinicians through every stage of the decision support process, from the initial content, all the way through treatment and follow-up care — increasing patient safety through better-informed patient care. PEPID contains the most extensive drug database on the market today, thousands of disease profiles and medical conditions, medical and dosing calculators, a drug interactions checker, along with numerous illustrations, laboratory values, and a differential diagnosis generator, all available on the Palm Pre.

“We’ve integrated all of this information into one application, which can be quickly and easily accessed by subscribers using the Palm Pre,” said Edward Reynolds, PEPID’s Chief Technology Officer. “Our development teams ensure that PEPID’s content is available for the latest technology—the next big release will be for the Google Android platform, which is coming soon.”

Studies have shown that medical errors are reduced and patient care improves when clinicians use software like PEPID. Now they can have the latest medical information and tools at their fingertips with the new PEPID application for the Palm Pre.

PEPID has provided clinical specialty-focused products since 1994, focusing on the way healthcare professionals practice medicine. PEPID offers one of the most robust medical information resources on the market as well as some of the best customer service in the industry.

Looking in one place and finding everything you need is powerful in any industry, but the benefits are even more substantial in healthcare. PEPID is available on Palm Pre and all other smart phones, online or delivered into an existing electronic medical record system.

Pepid has developed a suite of medical software packages for PDA, smartphones and other web-based devices used by medical professionals. At the core of the programs are high-quality medical calculators, a portable drug companion, and a drug interaction guide.

In addition to these basic functions, there are specialized medical PDA programs designed for different specific applications. For example, the Clinical Rotation Companion is designed as a quick and simple-to-use resource for medical students and residents in a hospital-based setting.

The Emergency Medicine Suite is geared to practitioners in the Emergency Department. It includes an emergency medical database organized to help with diagnosis, treatment and disposition.

The Primary Care Plus Suite is designed for physicians in both the ambulatory care and hospital care settings. This provides a detailed description and discussion of disorders and disease a primary care physician will see in an office or in-patient practice.
