eMPR Digital Drug Reference Reaches 50,000 Downloads and the Publisher Launches a Raffle for Healthcare Providers

NEW YORK, March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Prescribing Reference, Inc. (PRI) and Medicos, Inc. are pleased to announce that over 50,000 healthcare professionals have now downloaded eMPR, the desktop and mobile version of the MPR drug databases. For over 23 years clinicians in the United States have relied on the print editions of MPR for up-to-date, concise drug information at the point-of-care. Now eMPR is providing the exact same drug information on computers and mobile devices in all 50 states and more than 50 countries.

"We are dedicated to developing point-of-care tools for healthcare professionals," said James R. Pantaleo, Vice President and Publisher of PRI. "By offering a mobile and desktop version of MPR, we are giving clinicians the data they need in the format they prefer: on their mobile phone, PDA, office computer, online or in print. To further encourage clinicians to try this free application, they simply need to visit our website, download eMPR, register and they will be entered in our raffle to win their choice of a MacBook or Tablet PC, iPhone or SmartPhone."

To download eMPR and enter the contest, healthcare professionals can visit or to download eMPR directly to a mobile phone using the phone's web browser. eMPR is compatible with all Microsoft operating systems, including desktops, laptops, Tablet PCs, SmartPhones, PDAs, and mobile devices; MAC and iPhone versions of eMPR are in development for later in 2008.

eMPR is available for mobile devices and desktop computers through a strategic relationship with Medicos, Inc.

"Due to their universally recognized editorial excellence, over the last two decades, clinicians have come to depend on the MPR series of publications for critical healthcare decisions. Patients and the healthcare community are better off today for PRI's efforts to simplify drug information. Now, for the first time that impact will extend well beyond the limitations of the printed page, and Medicos is proud to support this important initiative," said Pablo R. Perillan, MD, PhD, co-founder and CEO of Medicos.
