March 23, 2015 — Phoenix, AZ — PEPID, the world’s leading provider of specialty medical and nursing software, today announced the release of PEPID Connect, a solution developed to help healthcare professionals more easily find material crucial to making accurate patient care decisions and standardize care across hospital systems and departments.
“[PEPID Connect is] aimed at decreasing the learning curve for our clients and reducing the number of clicks it takes to reach the information they need.”
“Healthcare professionals need access to critical information that’s designed specifically for them, that simultaneously connects them to hospital-wide protocols, formularies and other pertinent institution-specific information,” said John Wagner, president of PEPID, LLC. “PEPID Connect is designed to do just that.”
With physicians, nurses, pharmacists and patients all relying on different sources of information to make healthcare and medication decisions, healthcare systems have become inundated with disparate systems that lead to gaps in patient care and unnecessary costs in healthcare administration. PEPID Connect offers one portal with specialized resources for all departments — emergency, primary care, ambulatory care, oncology and the ICU — and all members of the healthcare team, from nurses to pharmacists and physicians. The new solution even offers resources for patients.
PEPID has restructured and expanded its PEPID Connect platform in response to feedback provided by its user base of healthcare professionals worldwide. For healthcare institutions, PEPID Connect allows hospital administrators to embed institutional protocols directly into disease and medication information to increase adherence, as well notes that can be shared among colleagues, which helps to standardize patient care.
“We designed a system aimed at decreasing the learning curve for our clients and reducing the number of clicks it takes to reach the information they need,” explained W. Edward Reynolds, PEPID Chief Technology Officer. “We also enabled access to this central hub of information via the technology that works best for them, whether it be from a mobile device, tablet, workstation or even within their electronic medical record system.”
