Skokie, IL, April 28th, 2005 —PEPID LLC— the world's leading developer of medical information and support tools — unveiled today the latest version of their product line, 6.1, improving on their in-demand PDA suites for doctors and nurses in hospitals, clinics and schools across the country.

New version highlights include the debut of PEPID OnCard, a 64MB SD memory card that is mailed to the subscriber with ready-to-install software that can be used within minutes after taking it out of the package. Free Updates are sent automatically for the duration of the OnCard subscription. Users need only to insert the card into their PDA and tap the install icon to get the latest medical information.

Access to evidence-based medicine is another major improvement. In a joint effort with Family Physician’s Inquiry Network (FPIN), PEPID now links its medical and pharmaceutical content with nearly 200 clinical inquiries from practicing physicians. Doctors and nurses can now link to the research behind PEPID’s concise recommendations without leaving the patient’s bedside. Once again, PEPID establishes its worth as a research tool while it demonstrates its ability to expand by integrating input from those who use it.

Special enhancements to the appearance of the information enable users to navigate faster. Drug topics now appear in blue and keywords stand out capitalized and in bold. At a glance, healthcare professionals can zero in on the relevant information, giving them more time to care for their patients and the ability to make well-informed decisions quickly.

Of course, PEPID has updated the content in all of its suites with new drugs and drug interactions, along with Beers criteria for medication use in the elderly. Revisions and content upgrades are also suite-specific, putting the information where it matters.
