(January 2004 - Chicago, IL) – PEPID, LLC, the leader in portable healthcare expertise, joins the medical crew aboard the Queen Mary II. PEPID, the current market leader in integrated medical databases for the PDA, provides specific medical software suites for healthcare practitioners.
PEPID’s premier emergency physician software (PEPID ED) with its database of 1800 medical topics, 5,000 drugs, 250 medical calculators and drug interaction generator will serve as a point-of-care reference software for the medical staff of the QMII as 2,000 passengers cross the Atlantic Ocean. The QMII’s maiden voyage begins on Monday, January 12th, as it sets sail from Southampton, U.K. to Fort Lauderdale, U.S.A.
“It is such an accomplishment to be aboard the Queen Mary II,” says John Wagner, V.P. of Sales and Marketing at PEPID. “We are part of the largest cruise liner in the world that has over 2,600 passengers. And on a transatlantic trip with limited resources available, it’s an honor to be accepted as the onboard portable medical reference tool.”
PEPID has also extended its commercial usage beyond the QMII to include all emergency physicians at all NASCAR racetracks and even the Secret Service of the United States. PEPID plans to continue diversifying its product and discover other areas where its software may be beneficial.
