PEPID eases wireless access to medic data

CHICAGO, March 10 (UPI) -- PEPID LLC has released a database of medical and drug information that can be accessed by any wireless device, including mobile handhelds.

The Chicago company said its latest advance makes it possible for medical personnel to use their own BlackBerry or laptop to access PEPID's database rather than requiring a custom device.

The PEPID Wireless service requires only an Internet Explorer or Blazer 4.0 (or higher) browser for access.

"Our new wireless capabilities cover both Palm and Windows operating systems," PEPID President John Wagner said in a news release. "Whether a practitioner owns a Palm OS device like Treo 650 ... or a Treo 700 with a pocket browser, he or she will find PEPID the most mobile resource available."
