PEPID, MEDHOST Form Alliance
EVANSTON, Illinois, and ADDISON, Texas - January 5, 2009 - PEPID, LLC developer of medical/drug information and decision-support tools, and MEDHOST, provider of the leading Emergency Department Information System (EDIS), formed an alliance to provide ED clinicians seamless and point-of-care access to PEPID's robust drug information, dosing and IV rate calculators. MEDHOST integrated PEPID's decision-support tools into its easy-to-use workflow solution to provide customers enhanced support for medication error reduction, accuracy in dosage and information upon order creation.
"ED clinicians rely on MEDHOST so they can work more efficiently and provide premium care. Our powerful, yet easy-to-use solution offers many features including the most effective and beneficial decision-support tools to help mitigate risk such as the reduction of adverse drug events," said Craig Herrod, president and CEO of MEDHOST. "Integrating PEPID into version 4.2 of our EDIS is yet another way that MEDHOST is helping to advance patient safety initiatives in the ED and supporting clinicians in their care delivery."
By combining PEPID and MEDHOST, clinicians will have a robust information
system loaded with weight-based dosing tools to help them make immediate
and educated decisions right at the bed side. Integrating PEPID eliminates
the need to log into or access other systems and screens, which expedites
decision making, order placement and care delivery.
