Designed by pediatricians and other medical specialists, PEMSoft is an invaluable point-of-care clinical information resource covering the entire spectrum of neonatal, infant, child, adolescent and young adult health. It is ideal for hospitals, emergency departments, clinics, pediatric group practices, transport services and medical schools.

The beauty of PEMSoft is that it is user-friendly, easy to navigate, up-to-date, and evidence-based. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.
