<strong>Evanston, Ill. &mdash; Oct. 16</strong><br />PEPID, a decision-support provider, and Touch Medix, a documentation software developer, have agreed to combine their emergency department solutions. <br /><br />Touch Medix&rsquo;s Touch ED emergency department information system (EDIS) product will incorporate PEPID&rsquo;s Emergency Physicians Suite (ED). <br /><br />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.<br /><br />&ldquo;PEPID information tools complement Touch ED perfectly and give our users more information than ever before, when and where they need it the most,&rdquo; said Dr. Chris Thompson, FACEP and chief medical officer of Touch Medix.<br /><br />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. <br /><br />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.<br /><br />&ldquo;Adding PEPID ED to Touch ED means physicians can find answers more quickly during an emergency, see more patients and provide better informed care,&rdquo; said Dennis Carson, PEPID vice president of sales. &ldquo;Accessing both documentation and decision support from a single EDIS resource improves workflow. Leveraging existing information infrastructure means greater ROI for hospitals.&rdquo;<br /><br />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 such as Touch ED.
