Date:6/4/2009

NEW YORK, June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Prescribing Reference LLC is pleased to announce that the MPR (Monthly Prescribing Reference) drug database is available to medical professionals as a free download for mobile devices, as well as desktop and laptop computers (www.empr.com/download). The MPR Mobile & Desktop Edition is now compatible with BlackBerry, Palm, Microsoft Mobile, Microsoft XP and Microsoft Vista.

For over 24 years, medical professionals in the US have relied on the print editions of MPR to deliver up-to-date, concise drug information at the point-of-care. Now the exact same drug information is available for mobile devices and Smartphones, as well as desktop and laptop computers. The pharmacist-editors at MPR are dedicated to bringing the highest quality drug information to all clinicians, with the most powerful and flexible clinical decision support tools available.

To celebrate the re-launch and availability of MPR on BlackBerry and Palm, any user that downloads the application before August 1, 2009 will be entered into a drawing for a laptop computer or Smartphone. Details of the contest and the download are available here www.empr.com/download.

"The MPR drug information was previously available for all Microsoft platforms," said Jim Pantaleo, Vice President and Publisher of the MPR product line. "However, many clinicians own BlackBerry and Palm devices, so we needed to make the MPR drug information available to them too. As the iPhone is dramatically changing the mobile market, we are pleased to say that our iPhone application will be available in the third quarter of this year."

The MPR Mobile & Desktop Edition delivers:

  • Over 4,000 up-to-date drug monographs by therapeutic category, brand name, generic name, disease, or manufacturer
  • Monographs for both prescription and OTC drugs
  • New drugs added weekly, along with news, resources, alerts
  • Free CME/CE programs

To download MPR and enter the contest, healthcare professionals can visit www.empr.com/download. MPR is compatible with all Microsoft operating systems, BlackBerry, and Palm systems. Please note that the previous version of eMPR will no longer be supported on the Medicos platform. You must download the new version in order to continue to receive updated drug information.
