Epocrates Essentials to Remain at Physicians' Fingertips

Cedars-Sinai has renewed its license for the full Epocrates Essentials package for all of members of the medical staff who have Blackberrys or iPhones.

Epocrates Essentials includes drug monographs, drug interaction checkers and calculators, pill pictures, herbal medicines, disease monographs, infectious disease treatment guides, and information about diagnostic and laboratory tests. 

To obtain a license code and installation instructions, send an e-mail to the Web/VS clinical support team at mdsupport@cshs.org. Please include your full name and physician ID number. If you received a license code for Epocrates from us last year, you will need to request a renewal from mdsupport@cshs.org, and register the new license code to continue to use the product in 2011.

Epocrates is developing a version of their product for the Verizon DROID product line, but are not yet in a position to announce a date for availability, said Ray Duncan, M.D., Chief Technical Officer.
