New Epocrates EDU Program Tops The Dean's List

WATERTOWN, Mass., May 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Epocrates, Inc., an athenahealth (Nasdaq:ATHN) company, today announced the launch of Epocrates EDU, a program created explicitly for medical education institutions seeking to provide all school-affiliated personnel universal access to clinical references. The program brings Epocrates' premium mobile and online resources into the classroom, library and on rounds.

"The new Epocrates EDU program has enabled the Dahlgren Memorial Library at Georgetown University Medical Center to offer a comprehensive and valuable resource to all our patrons, including residents and nurse practitioners," said Linda Van Keuren, associate director of resources and access management at Dahlgren Memorial Library and Epocrates EDU beta participant. "The mobile and online tools provide indispensable information both inside and outside the classroom and are a great addition to our Library."

Designed with input from medical school deans and librarians, Epocrates EDU provides a simple, multi-year licensing model to ease administrative burdens and deliver affordable access to Epocrates' award-winning solutions. With many medical schools requiring or supplying mobile devices, Epocrates' resources are often acquired on an individual level. Students, faculty, residents and staff at participating institutions can now benefit from site-wide, instant access to Epocrates® Essentials drug, disease and diagnostic reference and Epocrates Online Premium web-based medical resource.

"Epocrates EDU is helping education institutions bring consistency to the accessibility and quality of resources used at the point of learning and beyond," said Sean Handel, senior vice president of product management of Epocrates. "Epocrates has long been a staple in medical schools and libraries; our new solution broadens the reach and convenience to the entire school."

The company is launching Epocrates EDU at One Health Conference, the 2013 Medical Librarian Association (MLA) annual meeting and exhibition in Boston, May 4-8 at the Hynes Convention Center, booth #721. For more information on the program and to request a custom quote, visit
