Drug Guide For iPhone

I know that when you think about iPhone, drugs is not the first thing that will come on your mind. But what epocrates did is amazing. They created a drug guide for iphone. Their free, continuously updated reference includes information on more than 3,300 brand name and generic drugs including: Drug Dosing, Drug Interactions, Retail Pricing, Safety/Monitoring and Adverse Reactions. Right now Epocrates developers are currently working on a non-browser based version of their product that will not require an internet connection, so that users can access their content anywhere, anytime.
Epocrates develops clinical information and decision support tools that enable healthcare professionals to find answers more quickly and confidently at the point of care. More than 500,000 healthcare professionals, including one in four U.S. physicians, use Epocrates’ innovative mobile and web-based products to help them reduce medical errors, improve patient care and increase productivity.

Epocrates is one of a few companies who have been working directly with Apple to create an application that can be stored directly on the device. This will enable healthcare professionals to always have immediate access to vital clinical information wherever and whenever they need it, regardless of Internet connectivity. When a connection is established, the device will be automatically populated with updated drug and safety information and important medical news.
