PEPconnect is an online platform providing more than 7,000 learning modules on imaging and laboratory diagnostics available to medical professionals.

"PEPconnect and PEPconnections enable healthcare providers to give their employees the necessary training while keeping costs to a minimum, and let them access it when and where they see fit. Our virtual training services help our customers train their employees efficiently while curbing training costs."

PEPconnect provides medical professionals with customized training and professional development opportunities, with direct learning experiences in topics on laboratory diagnostics, medical imaging and minimally-invasive therapy. The learning activities were designed at Siemens Healthineers by experts in key areas, such as application design, instructional technology and information security. Learners can also construct a learning experience personalized to their needs, and share their learning experience with others via a range of social media channels or groups they are a part of within PEPconnect.

More than 200,000 medical professionals are already using PEPconnect for their training and professional development needs in seven different languages (English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Korean and Japanese).
