Epocrates wants out of the EHR market

Epocrates is looking to get out of the electronic health record market to focus more on their mobile offerings, according to an article in EMR Daily News. While announcing their Q4 and 2011 financials Tuesday, company president and CEO Peter Brandt said that Epocrates' EHR efforts have "hindered our ability to aggressively pursue" opportunities to build on its physician network. In 2011, Epocrates' revenue increased 9 percent to $113.3 million, the company announced. Total Q4 revenue was down 1.9 percent from the previous year, however, as the company earned $29.7 million, compared with $30.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. Article
