Physicians and nurses no longer have to sync their BlackBerry® smartphones to a desktop computer to add new resources or update medical and drug information

Evanston, Illinois – April 24, 2007 –PEPID, a leading innovator of mobile medical information resources, announced today that it has launched over-the-air (OTA) downloading for newer BlackBerry smartphones with MicroSD cards, such as the BlackBerry® 8700, 8800 and Pearl™ devices. PEPID users no longer have to be tethered by a sync cable to a desktop computer when adding new products or updating existing medical and drug information. As a result, doctors and nurses can be more mobile and stay well informed at the same time.

This new capability is enabled by software components developed by PEPID™ Technology. They allow PEPID for BlackBerry users to download applications and content over-the-air to a MicroSD card. As a result, new and existing PEPID subscribers no longer have to sync to a desktop for new products and updates—they can even register new PEPID products over-the-air.

In addition to products for individual caregivers, PEPID provides referential medical and drug content for hospitals and healthcare systems. Utilizing BlackBerry® MDS Technology, PEPID content integrates into new or existing hospital information systems for enhanced clinical decision-support, better risk management, and improved patient care and services.
OTA is ideal for BlackBerry® Enterprise Server system wide applications, as well as individual PEPID for BlackBerry subscribers. Now all PEPID™ for BlackBerry® users can be more mobile and stay current easier wherever an over-the-air connection is available.
