July 15, 2008 - Epocrates Inc. announced that its mobile drug and formulary reference, reportedly used by more than 500,000 healthcare professionals, can be downloaded free for the iPhone and iPod touch from the Apple App Store after Epocrates registration.

In addition, for the first time, the Epocrates Rx mobile application will feature pill pictures and a drug identification tool, providing more visual cues and resources for today's busy physicians. With enhanced functionality, clinicians can show their patients pictures of a newly prescribed drug, or identify a patient's existing medication with a physical description (e.g., round, blue and scored) when the name cannot be recalled.

"Many of my colleagues have been waiting for the Epocrates application before purchasing the iPhone. I guarantee it's going to be the first download on many devices, and immediately put to use with patients."

Epocrates software is used by clinicians worldwide to reference a host of drug information, such as dosing, interactions and health plan coverage.

The Epocrates free application is available from Apple's App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at
