Date:1/26/2010

Clinicians use Epocrates as part of their daily workflow for safer, more effective patient care

San Mateo, Calif. (PRWEB) January 26, 2010 -- Epocrates, Inc., a leading developer of mobile clinical and decision support software, today announced it expanded its enterprise use by health systems, hospitals and universities nationwide in 2009. The market demand and clinician need for its mobile and online solutions among large institutions continues to grow. More than 350 medical centers and universities across the nation have selected Epocrates to help support decision making at the point of care.

Recently celebrating its 10th anniversary with its network of 900,000 healthcare professionals, Epocrates software is credited for preventing millions of medical errors annually and saving individuals up to 20 minutes daily. During a patient interaction, physicians and other healthcare professionals use Epocrates to quickly access important medication data such as drug interactions, dosing and hospital or health plan formulary lists, as well as peer-reviewed disease content, diagnostic and laboratory interpretation support. Institutions and universities benefitting from Epocrates include:

 
  • Avera Health—This system made up of 297 locations in 95 communities, including 28 hospitals in North and South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa and Nebraska plus dozens of clinics, will use Epocrates Online Premium throughout the system in conjunction with their electronic medical record system for the next three years.
  • Florida State University College of Medicine – Dedicated to preparing physicians for the 21st century, this university has been providing Epocrates online software to students for 5 years and is committed through 2013. Mobile technology is integrated in the medical students' training with access to Epocrates Essentials premium software for use in real-world scenarios.
  • Group Health Cooperative – This consumer-governed, nonprofit healthcare system based in Seattle, Wash., inked a three-year deal to provide all clinicians with access to Epocrates Online Premium. Group Health provides care for more than 600,000 patients in Washington and Idaho annually.
  • Pacific Medical Centers – A client for nearly four years, the Centers offers more than 140 providers at nine locations in the Seattle region with access to Epocrates Online Premium for support during patient visits.

"While Epocrates remains a popular choice among individual clinicians, an increasing number of institutions have made Epocrates a key element of their clinical IT strategy," said Dr. Geoffrey Rutledge, chief medical officer and executive vice president of product development at Epocrates. "Medical professionals have come to rely on and expect integrated mobile technology as part of their workflow. Now, as hospitals and clinics make mobile devices, tablets and laptops standard equipment, decision makers know they must load those with the right solutions."
