PEPID was founded by board-certified physician Mark Rosenbloom, MBA, MD, FACEP, a fellow in both the American Academy of Emergency Medicine and the Royal Society of Medicine. As a training physician, Dr. Rosenbloom's lab coat pockets overflowed with his handwritten, detailed medical and drug reference notes, information he realized was invaluable in making diagnostic and therapeutic decisions. When the first personal digital assistants, or PDAs, were released, Dr. Rosenbloom copied all of his notes into his handheld computer's phone book.
Colleagues encouraged Dr. Rosenbloom to expand his electronic notes into a portable, comprehensive medical and drug resource for more widespread use. As a result, in 1994, Dr. Rosenbloom developed the first version of PEPID with an advisory board of more than 35 board-certified physicians and pharmacologists.
Today, PEPID is recognized as the leading developer of medical and pharmaceutical information and decision-support tools. Only PEPID gives the healthcare industry so much information so fast.
PEPID seeks to provide all healthcare professionals with instantly accessible, current, comprehensive and authoritative clinical point-of-care reference materials to help them provide faster, more individualized, and more effective health care. Our goal is more satisfied practitioners and better patient outcomes.
