Epocrates testing out mobile EHR

Ubiquitous medical reference provider, Epocrates, announced last week that it's getting into the medical records market with a mobile-enabled EHR product for small physician practices. Epocrates hopes to leverage the 320,000-plus physicians who use its mobile reference service. It's not a full-service offering yet, though. According to a company announcement, the EHR has patient encounter notes, a lab interface, e-prescribing and Epocrates' drug data. There's a bit more functionality for iPhone users, including patient record look-up, appointment scheduling, and e-prescribing, but the company is still working to add a patient portal and speech recognition software. Announcement
