Drug reference guide.

I was not particular about taking an appointment with a specialist doctor as I know my ailment was a minor and a quick checkup will suffice.

Even then, I had to seek an appointment as the only hospital nearby is a posh and high end one. I was punctual for my appointment but which doctor keeps it up? Of course, I took it in my stride and awaited my turn.

Other patients who were sitting next to me were talking about a special mobile phone that the doctor is using as a drug reference guide. It is a software developed by Epocrates and is now used by over 500,000 health care professionals.

Yes, I too remember reading about it online. With the Epocrates’ drug guide loaded on their PDA or smartphone clinicians can immediately access the information needed to make prescribing decisions – such as drug dosing, side effects and health plan coverage.

This announcement was paid for by Epocrates”.
