Epocrates Rolls Out Electronic Health Records System

San Mateo, CA-based Epocrates, a provider of medical reference apps for mobile devices, has long been working on a full electronic health records system for physicians’ offices. This week the company announced that the “first phase” of its EHR system is available. It’s a Web- and mobile-based system tailored for practices with 10 or fewer physicians and includes features such as patient notes, lab results, e-prescriptions, and drug information. Epocrates said that it plans to add features over time that would allow practices using its system to qualify for government incentive payments under the “meaningful use” provisions of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act.

    I am looking forward to hearing more about your Electronic Medical Records System. Does Epocrates plan to add features for Nurses as well. I work for a Cross Country Staffing (https://www.crosscountrystaffing.com/) and we specializes in staffing Electronic Medical trained Nurses. This is one of the few EMR systems that I’ve seen that is also a mobile-based system.
