Combined resources will help emergency physicians save precious time and be more productive

Evanston, Illinois — October 15, 2007 — PEPID, a leading decision-support provider, and Touch Medix, an innovative documentation software developer, have agreed to combine their emergency department solutions. Touch Medix’s Touch ED® emergency department information system (EDIS) product will incorporate PEPID’s Emergency Physicians Suite (ED). As a result, emergency physicians will be able to instantly access answers to medical and drug questions from the same electronic resource they use for patient data and charting.

“PEPID information tools complement Touch ED perfectly and give our users more information than ever before, when and where they need it the most,” says Chris Thompson, MD, FACEP and Chief Medical Officer of Touch Medix.

Created by emergency physicians for the emergency department, PEPID ED provides instant access to detailed information on trauma, toxicology, procedures, CBRNE, ACLS, psychiatric and pediatric conditions. It is also a complete drug database with a drug interactions generator, an interactive IV drug compatibility tool, and medical calculators fully-integrated into medical content.

“Adding PEPID ED to Touch ED means physicians can find answers more quickly during an emergency, see more patients, and provide better informed care,” concurs John Wagner, PEPID President. “Accessing both documentation and decision support from a single EDIS resource improves workflow. Leveraging existing information infrastructure means greater ROI for hospitals.”

PEPID ED is the emergency-focused component of the broader PEPID Knowledge Base (PKB). PKB provides answers to clinical questions at the point of care for a wide range of healthcare specialties and is designed for enterprise use, including EDIS applications like Touch ED.
