May be the third world should take immediate note of this revolution that is taking place in America.
Epocrates San Mateo, CA-based Epocrates is transforming the practice of medicine by providing innovative clinical solutions at the point of care and deploying leading-edge technologies that enable communication.
Well, why not? After all, when the entire world is sourcing information from atomic energy to spiritual energy, why the clinicians should be deprived of valuable and time sensitive information.
Epocrates Online provides clinicians with access to critical information about more than 3,300 drugs, including dosing, pricing, potential drug interactions and Medicare Part D formulary coverage from any computer with an Internet connection.
For example, a physician might be looking for some dosage information on Ambien, the trade name of Zolpidem that is used for the short-term treatment of insomnia. He can quickly retrieve this information from Epocrates.
Epocrates products are designed by practicing physicians to deliver the most clinically useful and relevant information that healthcare professionals need at the point of care.
Listen to Jacob Wood, MD, assistant professor, UAB Selma Family Residency Program, “I have been using Epocrates products on my PDA for years and find them indispensable to my practice. I think it is wonderful that my colleagues and staff that don’t yet use a PDA can now access the same information online to help them improve patient care.
Healthcare professionals can quickly and easily obtain formulary status, drug coverage and alternative and generic drug options for their patients’ health plans with Epocrates Online.
Clinicians who want a more comprehensive web reference can subscribe to the Epocrates Online premium product. The premium version boasts additional content and features such as more than 400 alternative medicine monographs, patient education handouts, pill pictures, pill identifier and hundreds of medical tables and calculations.
Epocrates was recently ranked 176 in the 25th annual Inc.500 ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the country.
