Every Hospital in Romania Relies on PEPID
To improve health care, the Romanian government has licensed PEPID’s international emergency physician software (EMCC) for every hospital in the country. The goal is a more cohesive, accurate, and productive healthcare system for the country’s 22 million residents. Romania joins the growing list of countries across the globe with healthcare systems that have adopted PEPID, including Taiwan, Lebanon, Australia and Canada.
“PEPID EMCC is exactly the type of resource we need. It gives our physicians a complete electronic medical and drug reference at their fingertips, and creates a more unified healthcare system,” said Dr. Ioana Daramus, Director Programe for the Romanian Center for Health Policies and Services.
Romania, which became a member of the European Union in 2007, is deploying
PEPID’s advanced decision support in a wide range of clinical settings,
both urban centers and rural areas. Its hospital network includes the renowned
Victor Babes University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Timisoara, and the University
of Bucharest hospital.
