PEPID is the Software of Choice for Unique Nursing Informatics Program in Canada

Evanston, IllinoisJune 15, 2008 �The Registered Nurses Association of Ontario (RNAO), allied nursing groups, and Ontario�s Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care will launch a program to improve nursing care by introducing PDAs with PEPID RN PRO software at the point-of-care. The first program of its kind in Canada, the initiative is part of HealthForceOntario�s new plan to put decision support in the hands of up to 2,000 Ontario nurses.

"Nurses spend more time at the patient�s side than any other healthcare providers," says PEPID President, John Wagner. "Arming them with PEPID RN is a proven method for improving the quality and efficiency of care, and ultimately achieving better patient outcomes. We are proud that PEPID is the software of choice for the Ontario program."

RNAO has initially purchased subscriptions for nearly 850 RNs from more than 30 locations. Nurses in long-term care homes, hospitals, public health units, family health teams, home health care agencies and correctional facilities will all have the opportunity to use PEPID RN to assist them at the bedside.

PEPID is supporting the effort with multiple training sessions. PEPID�s editorial and technology staff will also review content and navigation with participating RNs on an ongoing basis through interactive webinars.

Feedback from pioneering RNAO nurses will help to build programs and guidelines for tomorrow�s users. And, set goals for the implementation of PEPID informatics for future endeavors, including program expansion nationwide.



PEPID utilizes mobile and online technology to deliver clinical decision support resources specific for healthcare professionals including doctors, nurses, EMTs and students.

PEPID content is reviewed and contributed to by partners including the American Academy of Emergency Medicine, the National Association of Emergency Medical Services Educators, the Family Physician Inquiries Network, the National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists, the Oncology Nursing Society, and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists to ensure content is of the highest quality.
