Epocrates and AthenaHealth Launch First Collaborative mHealth App

10-2-2013 9-46-20 PM

AthenaHealth announces the release of its first new mobile health app since its merger with Epocrates. The app, called Epocrates Bugs + Drugs, uses Athena’s de-identified patient data to generate location specific antibiotic recommendations and susceptibility panels for clinicians.

Clinicians caring for patients with infections can use the app to look up the organism identified by the lab. As users drill down into the organism detail page,  the app displays a list of recommended antibiotics based on which medications the organism is typically susceptible to in that particular community.

The recommended antibiotics are linked to Epocrates drug reference library so additional information can be reviewed prior to prescribing. The app recommends antibiotics for the treatment of infections found in the blood, urine, or skin.

The app is currently available for download on iOS devices.
