With my recent experience of a delayed medical procedure, I am now beginning to realize how hard it is to fix the schedule of a doctor. While my Urologist, who handled my procedure last Saturday, is equipped with a PDA to keep him track of all his scheduled operations, consultations and other medical procedures, I bet he does not know about the the latest innovations wherein PDA's can help in assisting doctors as a medical reference. One company that develops medical softwares that can be uploaded in a smartphone or a PDA phone is Epocrates.com. At Epocrates, one can download free medical applications for blackberry which he can use to access the information he needs to make prescribing decisions especially if the doctor is out and his patient is in some far away place. Such informations are drug dosing, side effects and health plan coverage. Epocrates also is credited as one of the best for making pocket-size devices into a staple in every doctor's lab coats. It's just too hard to not have one these days. That's why every physician must have this wonderful gadget not only for showing but also this could help them a lot organizing their very hectic scheduled and make sure that he makes the right medical decision. What's more this will not be only available in blackberrys but later on in apple products such as Iphone and Ipod for more versatility. If you want to find out more and plan to recommend this to your physicians, do check out ther site www.epocrates.com for more info on their other products and services.
