Epocrates Introduces Free Online Disease Resource, Point-of-Care Reference

August 1, 2008 - Healthcare professionals need an authoritative resource on the Internet designed to quickly provide answers to urgent treatment questions, so Epocrates partnered with BMJ Group, publisher of the British Medical Journal, to create a new online product that delivers practical and up-to-date disease diagnosis and treatment guidelines.

The product features peer-reviewed content authored by physician experts with guidance by BMJ Group. Based on Epocrates’ concise drug reference, the enhanced solution is created for the way healthcare professionals work, supporting clinical decisions by making the most relevant information easily accessible.

The free Epocrates Online product provides clinicians with rapid access to practical, evidence-based content, including a new disease database that has a condition overview, risk factors, treatment approach, tests to order, and national medical society guidelines. The site also has an integrated drug reference guide with critical prescribing information on more than 3,300 drugs, including dosing, interactions and health plan coverage.

Individuals can access this reference at no cost from any Internet connected computer at www.epocrates.com/online with a short registration. Subscribers can also upgrade to the premium version for additional clinical content and decision support tools.
