Drug-Disease Module Released

PEPID announces the release of its drug-disease indications and contraindications module. This feature allows healthcare professionals to search for appropriate medications based on a patient’s diagnosis, and gives alerts if it’s a hazardous treatment based on any of the patient’s conditions, procedures or diagnostics tests. This information can be integrated into any EMR or HIT system, and can help prevent potentially harmful treatment options, and provide safer alternatives.

Drug Lab Monitoring 

PEPID recently added drug lab monitoring. The new clinical decision support monitors the effects of drugs on lab results over a period of time, and also helps to detect potential interferences on lab results. Drug lab monitoring is available in all of the PEPID suites and available for integration into any EMR or HIT system to create customized drug-lab alerts.
