PEPID content is not influenced by drug companies. In fact, The American Society of Healthcare Pharmacists partnered with PEPID in creating our original drug content. AHFS is the largest source of unbiased drug information.
Designated as an official compendium by the US Congress, containing information from medical literature and expert advice from over 500 medical scientists, physicians, pharmacists, pharmacologists, and other professionally qualified individuals that go beyond FDA-approved labeling, PEPID Pharmacist Pro with AHFS is a necessary resource for building a practical formulary.
New information is retrieved on a daily basis from multiple credible sources. Additionally, the pharma management team may consult external experts (e.g. toxicologist) for areas where peer review requires specialty knowledge of a topic or drug classification. Where a dosing calculator or drug interaction checker inclusion is involved, the new data will be published to a test environment for functionality testing by the management team before adding these features to the live product.
