Wave Medical Becomes PEPID International

CHICAGO, March 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PEPID, the leading provider of developer drug data and clinical decision support information and technology for healthcare systems and professionals worldwide, today announced that its partner, Wave Medical, will now be known as, PEPID International, in order to better position the company for future growth outside the United States and Canada.

Wave Medical was introduced by PEPID in 2008 in order to extend the company's presence outside the US and Canada. The international healthcare arena has evolved since then. While countries and regions maintain individualized practices and standards of care technological best practices have become universal and as PEPID closed out its 2012 travels to trade shows, conferences and expos around the world one thing was certain — Healthcare professionals everywhere know and trust the PEPID brand as the paramount provider of healthcare content, technology and user support.

"As I speak to healthcare professionals and system providers in all corners of the world, one thing never ceases to amaze me — the parallels of healthcare systems. The world healthcare market has progressed since we began with Wave Medical, and this rebranding reflects that change," Says John Wagner, PEPID president and PEPID International chairman.

"We want our users to know that while our global products are unique, they maintain the same high standards as our US products," says John Wagner, PEPID President. "38 countries are already supported by PEPID International's drug database — securing the company's position as the largest and most authoritative drug database on the global market," John clarifies.

PEPID International's reputable clinical and pharmacological content is designed to support clinicians through every stage of the decision support process, increasing safety and accuracy through better-informed patient care, while being in accordance with regional and global standards. This latest change has been made to express that point to the international medical community.
